Uconnect question

Ok Everyone,

I synced my phone to the Uconnect system. I currently have all phone calls going through, voice phonebook, and streaming music through bluetooth. The only thing that I can not figure out is the SMS message alert. I have it turned on, but when I get a text my phone just vibrates, no audible through the phone nor the stereo speakers. However I can send a prerecorded message via the uconnect system. Am I doing something wrong. I would like to be able to know when I receive texts as I usually have my phone down near the emergency brake.

Best Wishes,

I wish I could help. I went with an aftermarket stereo with blue tooth. I had so many problems with the Uconnect.

It's probably because you're not supposed to text and drive...

What kind of phone do you have? Did you check to see if it was compatible with the UConnect system? I have a Droid2 and it works fine. The only problem I have is that since I downloaded the Handscent app for text messaging, I get error messages when I send a text. It says the message failed, but they actually do go through. If I use the text messaging built into the phone, it works fine.
