Two different things
I think you maybe thinking of 2 different things.
1. U-connect phone , the phone button, on your truck is for you to use your phone thru your radio, and for you to give voice commands to the radio. It connects to your phone via Bluetooth, and you can stream music from your phone to the radio. It is not used as an internet hotspot.
2. You can purchase U-connect web for your vehicle that is an internet hotspot. It's a small box that you can tie directly into your truck, or you can do like we did here and splice a cigar lighter end into it and move it from vehicle to vehicle. It works off of cell towers, it's not the fastest but, works well. As long as you have cell reception you can get on the net.
I've got the U-connect phone in my truck and love it. You will want to check ramtrucks.com to verify your phone is compatible with the system. Hope this helps.
