When I first paired my phone to my 2018 Ram 2500, I could receive and make calls, and would receive notifications on text messages. I still get texts, but no notifications through the uconnect. Calls are still coming through. I don't know why, anyone else have this problem? How did you fix it?

All settings are set to on... I may unpair and re-pair. I like to at least know when I get a text while driving, my kids text me a lot, and usually while I'm driving.

I figured that would be the solution, but wanted to see what everyone else had done. I have learned a lot here.

Just got rear ended by someone texting and driving...my phone stays in console when I’m driving..I don’t answer it, the caller can wait for a call back. It amazes me the number of people you see at a red light on their phones.

Not sold on Siri..your mind is focused on conversation and not on driving..course I can’t walk and chew gum at the same time

I find myself using the horn way more than I ever did. People sitting at lights messing with their phones and not driving.

Some of that may be coming from a decrease in patience due to age.

I don't text and drive anymore, but people refuse to call, and just text. I only want to know who is texting, and that can be done hands free.
