[Q] Issue with SMS and Car Handsfree via Bluetooth
Wondering if anyone can help shed some light on this issue. I connect my ATT Note 2 via Bluetooth to the handsfree system in my car (2013 Dodge which uses UConnect system). I've seen people having issues getting this setup to work, but mine worked very well right from the get go. Phone control, bluetooth music streaming and SMS all worked well with voice control.
However, just this week, it appears I got an update "pushed" to the phone for ATT's message app. I didn't like the fact that it was pushed onto the phone, caused far too many notifications of incoming texts and was causing duplicate messages with the stock message app. So, I uninstalled the update and disabled the app. This appeared to get me back to the stock messaging app as everything was before. Except for one strange side-effect. Now, when I'm connected to my hands free system in the car via bluetooth and get an incoming text, the system cannot announce the name of the sender anymore. It was working fine. Now the system just says "No Number Available". The frustrating thing is it was working well and then developed this issue with the only thing I know changing was the ATT message app debacle in the middle.
Does anyone have a clue as to why the handsfree system cannot resolve the incoming sender name anymore and announce it as it did before? The handsfree system has access to contacts and the people sender texts are in my contact list. I can actually send texts fine hands free.
I've tried phone re-boots, re-pairing and few others things. Any help appreciated.
