I live in Alaska near Wasilla & Anchorage & I have a 2017 Ram 1500 Sport that I bought in September of 2016. Up until I received an over the air update for the radio everything was fine. 3G service always showed on the apps icon in the radio & I used the downloadable app on my iphone 7 to autostart the vehicle during the winter. I believe sometime in June I received an over the air update on the radio. Shortly thereafter the radio would freeze & the only way to get the radio control back was to power off the vehicle. I also noticed that the 3G indicator was now 1X. I took it into the dealer & they replaced the radio but it was only 1X still. They supposedly checked the antennas, wiring, & did a manual system update but said there was no issue. They started a *Star* report but they said Uconnect does not have coverage in Alaska & therefor I will not be able to receive over the air updates nor use any of the remote options on their app. They state that you must have access to the Sprint cellular network for the Uconnect system to work. I asked if there had been a recent change of network & they said no. All of this makes no sense to me & might be somewhat trivial but I really like the remote apps for starting the vehicle when i was out of range of the keyfob. I am hoping to hear from someone else from Alaska on here for their Uconnect access experience.
