The Brightside works well. I tested it for a friend she bought it. Very basic phone, paired, made, rec'd calls, downloaded the phonebook contacts etc.

He knew the system and was very helpful but no luck. We gave up. I'm overdue for a new cell phone and I want to see if anyone else had a problem connecting with the same phone or if anyone has had success with either of the phones I am considering. The phone that would not connect is the Samsung Alias. The two phones I am considering are the Samsung Intensity III or the Samsung Brightside. None of these phones are smart phones. I don't need that nor want one. Hopefully someone has had experience with one of these. I called Jeep at 1-877-855-8400 (Uconnect questions) and the technician could not give me an answer about either of the models I am considering. I have the 130 radio in my new Jeep. He said I should ask on Wrangler Forum. So here I am.
