Uconnect pairing trouble

I just picked up my 2013 Gecko Sport 6 speed. Love it. I wanted a manual transmission this time so I ordered the connectivity package. I know from past experience that shifting and talking on the cell phone can be a challenge. My salesman could not get my cell phone to pair properly. 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.

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.

Thanks for the reply. Glad it worked OK. After I started the thread I did locate some info on the Verizon chart. I looked all over for information on this and could not find anything. I asked my son who then found it within a minute. I guess that's why I need a "dumb phone". The below link lists all the phones that work with Verizon and all vehicles.
