    Has anybody with an iPhone been able to make voice "reading" of received text messages through UConnect work? My messaging button is totally grayed out. I know that voice sending is not supported on the iPhone, but according to the UConnect little round manual, it says voice reading of received messages is supported. I have the 5s and iOS 8. I'm about to call them, and it will probably be just a waste of time.

    Iphones are not compatible with this part of a uconnect. If you go on the Uconnect website, it tells you which phones are compatible and very few are.

    It should work if you go through siri though but definitely not user friendly when you are driving.

    People have called Uconnect since 2012 about this and they tell everybody that an update should be available in 2 weeks. Since 2012...

    I understand that. Take a look at the picture, notice on the bottom where it says "Apple iPhone IOS6 or later supports reading incoming texts only"

    This came with my CAT. So they are obviously sending out ancient manuals with brand new cars.

    MY iPHONE 4s can received text and if you press the "listen" button will read them out to you. I use this feature all the time.
    But you can not send a text .

    That did it! This is the solution. I can't believe I didn't check that, crazy. Never thought about notifications through the BT connection. Good deal dude, thanks.

    Thank you! This was the best, and only, explanation of how to get the iPhone and Uconnect to work together, to allow text messages to be received. It works now. Thanks again for the info.:D

    Mine works with a 6. For a while only Siri would read the texts when I pushed the listen button, but last week the car read the text. Before, I could only read it when the car was not in motion. Not sure what changed, but it works

    From everything I've heard here about the 6 and U Connect, there is definitely something weird going on.
