    If you are talking about the phone app from OnStar...
    Just push the Blue Button on the mirror and they can connect you to Tech Support and they will tell you what version you need to be able to use MyLink.
    or call them... 1-888-466-7827

    I just checked my Onstar page... it says 2010 or newer.

    *Requires Generation 9 hardware. See your dealer for more information.

    You are correct but if you look at Buick lucrene for 2010 it states that it requires 8.2 hardware. I doubt that gm only upgraded the Buick lucrene to work with mylink app with the older vcim. Check it out and tell me what you think
