got email and text to work ... on iphone 5. i just read this entire 10 page thread lol. All the info is here. texts came in easily, the 'toggling' of show unread messages was the last step i missed but get email now easily too.
it's a bit of an annoying step, but only takes a few seconds, and nice to have and worth having email coming in on idrive on my way to work.
