I'm responding here as well as the other thread that you contacted me thru. I have a couple questions:
1) What network is your IPhone 4s on?
2) You mention the "media player", is the IPod media player that is stock on the phone or is it an add on app?
3) If it's the IPod player, when you get into the vehicle, you say that it's playing but not showing that it's playing on the phone screen? The IPod gets put on "pause" when it is not selected as the AUX device by pressing the "AUX" tab in the media display.
4) The pressing of the "pause" button on the phone is not a supported feature. This is why when you press the "pause" tab, the music stops and then starts again. (normal) The starting and pausing of the player is done only by the onscreen tab on the radio display.
5) The radio does not control the Uconnect system in this radio. The Uc is a separate module, however it does not send out constant BT signal to the A2DP profile. It only connects to the (should) when the "AUX" tab is selected from the Media screen.
6) If you have the IPod screen displayed, when you say it is running, is the play timer counting up?
Lets start here and see how to proceed, okay. Thanks

Hi, guys. Thanks for responding. Unfortunately, the problem isn't with the phone, it's with the BT software in the vehicle/head unit. I know how to shut down programs on the iphone, but the issue is that when I try to shut down the music player, the phone doesn't show it even running. If I start the music program and try to manually stop the music from playing, it stops for a half a second and then starts playing again. I think the issue is that the head unit is constantly sending a signal to the phone to keep it connected through BT and that signal automatically starts the music player function on the phone. What I guess I need is to jailbreak my phone with an app that is able to select which iPhone app I want to connect through BT. Right now, I don't have a choice -- it's always the music player.
I appreciate the responses, though.
