My iPhone 4S with iOS 7 (and before, iOS 6) works perfectly using voice texting. I start up "Siri" and after about a 2-3 second delay, UVO "calls" my phone - like I'm having a phone conversation with myself, and I can text and talk to Siri seamlessly. You do have to wait that 2-3 seconds and you won't hear the initial "beep" that's it's okay to start talking. And after you've finished your "self-call", UVO goes back to playing music (if you had it on).

I think he's possibly pointing out that you can't even hear incoming text sounds (unless you're in Bluetooth streaming audio mode).

It's kind of annoying. I want to pair my phone for phone calls, but not hearing the incoming text sound is harsh. I'll get out of my car and have texts of some importance that I didn't notice because the sounds didn't play.

I wish there was a way to activate Siri without having to actually physically use my phone. If someone can figure that out, that would be awesome. I use Siri all the time to perform tasks for me while I'm driving (I put on 2k miles a week), and I hate to have to fumble for my phone to hold the button down.

Its a shame that kia didnt make uvo sms text streaming more available to everyones smart phones . I hope they come out with a firmware that makes the sms on uvo more accessible.

Every time I get a text on bluetooh, it reads the text to me and says who it is from. Then I can "ignore" or "reply". All voice automated of course. Didn't work on my old Android phone, but works on WP8 phones.
