When you paired the phone up did you turn the "Notifications" on? If you didn't or don't know how this is done, then this is why you're not getting the notification.
If you don't know about it then here's how it's done:
get in the vehicle, don't turn the key on yet, Go into the phones settings menu, go to Bluetooth, tap the blue arrow next to Uconnect, on the next page you'll see "show notifications", this needs to be ON. now turn the key on and let Uconnect bond to your phone. Now have someone send you a text message. WHen that message comes thru then you should get the notification from Uconnect that you received a new SMS.......

xsdbs - I am not sure what phone you are on or what version of the IOS you are on, but your instructions above will not work on an iPhone 5, iOS6. Settingg--> bluetooth -> Uconnect --> second page has only Synch contacts, and Groups as options.

The only way to set notifications on the iOS 6, is under Settings--> notifications --> messages On that screen are the settings to where and how notifications are managed. If you have a banner, and not an alert -you are guaranteed to not get a notification. I believe you have to have the alert style set to alerts to get a notification come through the stereo

well, now isn't that quite odd? Here it is on my buddies iPhone5, I also get it on my 4S.
The problem is though that after I tested the incoming notification, I found that Apple isn't sending the BT notification message to Uconnect so even with this turned on there won't be a notification of the message. This feature does work on several other phones so it's an Apple issue. I just sent Apple and email to see what they think.

I also do not get the 'show notifications' option and I'm on an iPhone5 w/ the latest release of iOS6.

I have no problems pairing and streaming, and while streaming, I can hear all my notification bings and chirps. It's when I'm in SAT mode and the phone is paired, that I don't hear them any longer.

The other problem is that my contacts don't show the address(es) for navigation. If I select iPhone5 contacts from my address book, I can not ever "navigate to" that contact. The address doesn't synch. This isn't an iOS related issue because it works fine on my Audi and wife's Honda Pilot.

1) It's there, sometimes you have to go into that screen a couple of times.
2) You'll hear the notification in the streaming mode by design of the phone, the problem is that the phone does not sent the BT message to Uconnect that there is an incoming message. (phone issue, it works with other phones)
3) What radio do you have? (730N?) This depends on what the radio supports, if it's a 430N, then that feature is not supported by Mitsubishi. This isn't the Uconnect module. If it is the 730N, there has been a new update disc sent out to a couple other members on a different forum, you may want to check with the dealer about getting 1. I don't know if this update fixes that issue but worth the try.

1) Weird... I've gone in there many many times including while connected and disconnected. I'm kind of an Apple geek, so if anyone would find it, I think I would.
2) Yes... thanks.
3) I have a 730N. How do I tell what version I have? My Jeep is spanking new. I may have the latest version already.
If I don't, I think I'd be able to download it from the net and not have to see the dealer?

Scott in Houston,
Did you find the Notification tab? You may or may not get the notification on the 730N either. I have the 430N and as I mentioned, it doesn't get the notification from the phone.
I'll have to look around a bit, I float around a little on 8 different forums and saw a member on one of them mention about the disc he rec'd on Monday for his 730N. I'm not sure what the supported build date was though.
I'm not well versed with the 730N but you should be able to see the SW version in the menu settings.

I have found that Siri will work under the following conditions on 430N. Both lead me to believe this IS a Uconnect issue.

1) if I have an active Bluetooth audiostream (podcast or inapp sound). Then Siri works like a charm!
2) randomly after a reconnect of Bluetooth Siri will work.

If uconnect managed to have their system activate a Bluetooth audio stream whenever Siri asks to operate I suspect it could work. It's would completely be a Chrysler issue unless they don't know when Siri is trying to work!

Off topic but possibly related, one other issue is that you can only run the Music app when connected via USB. No in app audio works as it briefly tries to connect a Bluetooth audio stream before the uconnect/iPod interface shuts it down!

Not a well tested system hopefully they release updates as iPhone / ios6 isn't a niche interface to have!

Siri worked just fine on my 2013 Ford Focus ST, so I have to say it's a Chrysler issue.

I never did find that tab. I've basically given up on this now. It's generally acceptable to me the way it is. I don't hear text notifications through BT unless streaming, but my phone sits up in a pro clip at almost eye level, so I see them.

Siri is fine though. If I click Siri on the phone, it will go through BT easily.

Can you tell me what 8 forums you surf? If they're for Jeep that is... I have found only this one and one other for Jeeps. I'm guessing you may be on other Chrysler car forums too?

I can get Pandora, etc. to work fine over BT with my 730N.
The only issue I notice is that when I try to connect via BT for audio stuff, I need to wait a minute or two after the Jeep starts and connects to my phone. If I try and connect immediately after my phone and Jeep "connect" via BT, it will give me a "Connection Failed" type message when trying to play audio (regardless of whether it's an app or not).

The problem is the uconnect software is extremely outdated and when we try to connect newer phones with newer software things don't work well. I have called uconnect and have been to the dealer for issues regarding different things and all I'm told is wait for an update. The compatible phone list is really old, I don't believe they have any intention to support the head units in our vehicles anymore. Soon as my satellite sub is up I'm ripping it out since its crap anyway.

Ahh, I got it now. You have a 730N radio. This must not have clicked before. In order for the Notification tab to show up on the phone the hands free kit (Uconnect, sync etc needs to support MAP. (message access profile) The problem is that the Harman radios don't support it. They did send out an update disc, I think that I started reading about a few people getting them a couple weeks ago. With that update, Harman was supposed to enable MAP.
The reason why you can't connect immediately to any of the APP media points is because there is a sequence to questions and answers that are going on thru the air. BT is not a light switch and an incandescent light bulb , where you turn it on and the light is on.
When you get into the vehicle, turn the key on, about a minute later later your phone and Uconnect are connected but not bonded. Uconnect will ask the phone questions, they need to be answered by the phone, next the PB is downloaded and compared to the stored information to see if you have added or deleted any contacts. Now the handshake is completed and the Handsfree profile is bonded. Next AD2P is connecting and now when it's bonded, then you can stream audio.
Now this was just a simlpe non technical version of what is going on in the air. It really is much more deeper than and more technical than this explanation. But I'm not an engineer but I'm trying to learn more about the BT technology. It is quite interesting.

You know I find it quite interesting when people go onto a forum and proceed to act as if they have a clue about something.

First off the BT specs are loosely regulated which leaves the specs open to how someone (an Engineer) will interpret them. The problem here is that the way one person reads them may be different than the way someone else will read them. With that being said some things will work and some will not. Some car kits will work differently than others. This doesn't mean that one kit is better or worse than the other. Some phones will also work better than other phones with a kit and worse with another kit.
In the case of SIRI, visual Voice mail or voice memos there are issues with how Apple implements SIRI. It does NOT work on BT streaaming audio, Apple uses your voice mail when any of these items are being used.
The problem currently is that when you're in any one of these features and you have an incoming call, the incoming call is displayed on the radio but there's not a popup to answer the call. If you think to yourself, "oh I can accept hte call by pressing the Uconnect phone button. Apple ends the feature that you're in, completes the voice mail call that the feature is using in order to be heard thru the carkit and then sends the incoming call to your voice mail.
What are you doing now? Pressing the Uconnect button trying to answer the call while saying "hello, hello" @#@@###@# it. The other person has no idea that you're trying to answer the call or getting frustrated and are leaving you a voice mail.
This has been a known issue since last October 2011 when iOS5 came out. So because of the way that these features are currently working and Apple doesn't want to help out with it, Chrysler has decided not to support those features as of the V2 builds for 2011 to current models. So yes it will somewhat work on a V1 2011 vehicle but once you have performed the Uconnect SW update, it will not work.
If the system is working well with many other phones and you make a band aid for one phones issue, it's possible to break what does work.
Until the BT specs become tightly regulated and there is only one interpretation on how a profile should work then there will be problems and not all kits are created equal.
Not to mention the people that post about how great their phone and Uconnect (or even other car kits) have worked for a year (or whatever time frame) but now they updated the phones SW and the phone doesn't work or connect while claiminng that the car kit sucks and is a pile of crap. REALLY? If it's been working and you updated the phones SW, why would you even assume that the Uconnect is at fault.

It's truly amazing at how well a company such as Apple can market an item to create such a group of followers that believe that they are what the world should be desinged to work with. I personally use that iPhone 4S and have also played with the iPhone 5 (because they are paid for by work) My family has Android phones. Not saying which that I actually like most in oorder not to start an arguement, however I do know that I have to reboot my iPhone (s) a few times a month for issues other thhan just BT related issues. My media can't easily be used in non Apple devices even though I have purchased them from iTunes and own them. ETC, ETC.

As for the Approved phone list for Uconnect, there are approximately 75 - 100 phones tested yearly with the system. You're correct that the list is a bit behind, but not as far as it has been in the past.
I also enjoy those that come to rant about how they've been to the dealer and called Uconnect about an issue they're having while not mentioning about:
1) what year vehicle they have,
2) the vehicle build date,
3) what radio they have,
4) what phone and carrier they have,
5) a good solid description of the issue they are having,
6) open ears and mind

The dealerships only seem (most of them anyways) interested in their paycheck. They get paid warranty dollars each time they have you come back. Most of the time their diagnostic procedure is getting into the vehicle, trying to duplicaate the issue, then saying "yeah the radio's bad, we'll order you a new one. When it comes in and they replace it, how ticked off are you that you still ahve the same issue? Back to the dealer, "oh, well the Uconnect module is bad, we'll order you a new one". Problem still exists. Hmm you're phones not on the approved list so it isn't compatible.
I definatley don't know everything and will be the first to say that I don't know but hey let me look into it for you. Lets here that from the dealers instead of well that's bad.

Yes, I am driving around the Wrangler Unlimited 2014, and Siri is not working with the 4s or the 5s. Does anyone know how to UPDATE the Uconnect once this problem gets resolved? Do I need to first setup Siirus or something? I've kinda ignored the Sirrus satellite feature because I never play with sat radio.

SIRI will not be a supported feature on the Uconnect system in vehicles that have the RES, REQ, RBZ or RHB radios. However it may be supported on other radios. There is an issue with how Apple supports an incoming call and the message it sends to the Uconnect system while a person had been using SIRI when she first came out. Because of that issue Chrysler, the radio MFG and the supplier of the Uconnect module all agreed not to support SIRI, Visual voice mail and voice memo.
The hands free system is designed to make it simple, safe for you and others that are driving around you.
1) If you're using SIRI to look up something on the web, once she has found a list of the items that you had her search for, you have to take your eyes off the road to look at the list and make a choice from it.
2) If you're using SIRI to send or reply to a text message while driving, after you say your message, she has a pop up for you to read the message and then asked if you want to send it or change it. Now your eyes are off the road again trying to read the message and also trying to pay attention to your driving. From what I have found by trying to send a message is that most of the time the message from SIRI isn't correct, I tell her that I want to change it, I once again attempt to spoon feed her a sentence in which comes back incorrect again. Now I'm ticked off (like anyone would be) and just want to throw the phone out the window, but my wife would kill me because now I'd have to buy a new phone.
3) If I need to send a full message to a person, I find it much easier and safer to just pull over when I can, type in the text and send it. Once that's done, I continue on my drive or I call the person.
All the cases above are forms of Driver Distraction which is not safe for you or anyone around you and is the reason why a hands free system was designed, to make things simple and safe for you and others.

Siri doesn't work properly on any Chrysler UConnect System.

I have a dart with the 8.4N and my buddy has the 730N in his Jeep and a 430N in his work vehicle and none of them work with Siri. You press the button, it beeps like it's waiting but you never can get the phone to recognize that you're speaking to it.

I think the last poster was correct. Since Apple thinks differently on pretty much everything and Samsung dominates the android market, UConnect software seems to be for android.

Just wanted to say thanks to the information adders here.

I for one was thrilled to be able to say "call rozinsky bottswannaburgia" (made that up, just imaging a nasty name) and the unconnect/phone asked me which of 4 of them I wanted, said the names correctly, and made the right call.

Call me simplistic, but that is more than I could have hoped for...

Happy camper here.

It's not that Uconnect is built for Android, it's more along the line that APPLE thinks that they're so special that they that everyone should conform to their way of thinking. If things were built specifically to work best with APPLE products and everything else comes next in line, then there may be issues with companies like Samsung, HTC, LG, Nokia, Motorola etc. SIRI has issues with other vehicle MFG's also and not only Chrysler.
To use SIRI while driving, you can tap the Airplay icon while in BT and select IPhone instead of Uconnect. Then SIRI will work on the phone itself.

Get a different phone or a different radio I guess. Or, write your own code and build your own phone connect stack. Redressing smaller annoyances has spawned corporate empires and created personal fortune for many.

From the lock screen, pull up the control center then look at the mail with triangle icon, then tap the iphone instead of uconnect. It will work, but only after you do it this way, kinda annoying

Soution with Connectivity Pkg + iP5 + SMS = turning BT on/off

I realize this is an older thread, but it seems useful for tracking the issue and solutions. In hopes it'll help someone here's my setup and solution, which I'm relatively happy with.

2013 JKUR with base 130 radio + connectivity package. In case anyone's researching and not familiar, connectivity package adds a USB port inside center console. Not just power, but some sort of interface to stereo. AFAIK, my JK hasn't had any software upgrades since I bought it in Sept of 2012. At least the dealer hasn't mentioned any, and functionality has been same entire time. As for phone, I'm using with an original iPhone 5 (last gen, not C or S). I always plug in my phone (rather than BT) because it seems to sound and work better, connects faster than BT, and I'm usually low on power. So these comments are with it plugged into the connectivity USB with the OEM apple cord. Finally, for visibility and ease of use I've got the phone in an iOttie suction cup mount that's suctioned into the little tray on top of dash. (Just remove the rubber liner for this tray and the suction sticks like crazy to the bottom.)

I mostly use Pandora and Google Maps apps while driving, plus make phone calls. Occasionally I listen to XM (thru the head unit, not a phone app). Pandora plays great from iP thru speakers, and G maps mutes Pandora to tell me directions through the speakers. For some reason, G maps doesn't like to speak to me unless I also have Pandora app running, even if Pan is paused. Phone works great too -- I usually hit the phone button on radio head unit and speak what person or # I want to call. For XM, obv hit that button and the phone isn't involved.

This is all with BT on, and as I understand it the BT is what allows the cell phone integration to work (separate from phone apps going line-in to stereo).

So, then let's say I want to use Siri. It SEEMS to consistently work that I can swipe up the control panel from bottom of the screen, turn off BT, and then hold the home button to talk to Siri. She answers through the phone speaker, NOT the stereo, but this is audible at least with the top up. I haven't pushed the limits much, but I can def ask "what's the weather forecast," or "text Bob" / she then asks "what do I say," etc. I assume other functions would work as well, like saying what music to play, but then it'd just play thru the phone's speaker.

YMMV and I'm by no means an expert. But this is working for me. And please, if anyone has tips for greater functionality with this setup, let me know!
