The phone part of my phone (iPhone 8) is working fine with my new M3, 50.7 software. Can make and send calls with voice command, no problem. Also shows my contacts,recent calls, etc, fine. All the sync buttons on both phone and car seem to be in the right place.
But since I got the car a week ago, and through 3 software updates, I've been unable to send and receive texts.
When I'm sent a text it shows up on my phone, but not on the control screen or under messages. When I try to send one, I can voice command the person to text, dictate a message, but then the 'Tap to send' bar is greyed out, and the little box with the dictation seems to just freeze, and it takes either many multiple swipes or time for it to go away and let me use voice control for anything else again.
Since I get and send a decent amount of text messages through the day, this is a problem, since texting via the phone and not through the car is far more dangerous and distracting (generally I just ignore until I stop, but as my work for the new year ramps up that will get ever harder).
Before I contact Tesla service, I wanted to see if anyone out there might suggest something I might be missing.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
