I would hope that being to the dealer over this they might know these tricks.
One would hope...

IF that is indeed your issue, this info might prove useful. It gets kinda deep, but the fix is in there.

You might try going to the Uconnect site and entering your VIN just to see what they think.

On edit, I now see that you listed the problems. Doesn't sound like I was helpful. Good luck.

2015 and just last week the embedded cell phone card in the radio started failing. Updated to the latest software version yesterday and it failed again today. Called the dealer, they were very familiar with the issue and ordered a replacement radio.

$14.99 monthly or $149.99 yearly payment Seems like a lot of money to spend for something that doesn't work very well.

Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

I have a 2017 RAM 1500 with the 8.4" UConnect. I haven't subscribed to the app since the trial ran out. From the time I bought it until the last update, about a month or so ago, I couldn't set favorite phone numbers. Kind of an annoyance, but not a huge issue. Before the update, it would shut down as soon as any door was opened. After the update, it stays on for up to around 35-40 seconds even if the door is opened. I've never had it fail to shut down though.

My 2014 Grand Cherokee works fine.

My 2012 won’t save satellite radio stations as favorites anymore. But I don’t think that is a Uconnect issue. Probably will just update the head unit to something with car play.

I'm not sure if they pushed another update or rolled back to an older version, but just after I posted this 2 days ago, mine went back to not saving telephone favorites and now powers down as soon as I turn the ignition off. I never got any message that there was an update.

The only issue mine ever has is it sometimes doesn't turn on when I start the truck. It's probably happened a half dozen times in 5 years, and there's no pattern to it I can discern. I can't remember what version I have but it's has the small grayscale touchscreen. I only ever use it for the radio and phone calls, and I use Siri to manage my calling so I can't speak to how uconnect handles those functions although I'd guess not as well.

It's Chrysler and electronics. Adjust your expectations accordingly.

LOL. The head unit in my Grand Cherokee is made by Harmon Kardon - one of the best in the business.
