Text Message Working!!

7 posts in this topic

I was driving along yesterday and suddenly felt my phone vibrate in my pocket and then the car got the text and read it out / displayed it on the screen?! iPhone 5?! Anyone else's just randomly started working? Touch wood it'll still work today!

The only thing that I think I did differently was after reading some random American thread about getting the text messaging facility working was to unpair the iPhone from the car and then repair it but in the settings in my iPhone's bluetooth I turned 'Show Notifications' on. This is what I think enabled the texts to work? Either that or a helpful glitch? I can't actually send any text messages via the car but it'll recieve them, read them out to me or allow me to see them on the dash. I also made sure that any text messaging settings were turned on in the car. Maybe someone else can try the show notifications thing and let us know if it works for them?
