Next 4XXX?

Any word or knowledge of the next generation of 4XXX from HP? Maybe with more onboard memory and updated features? I see the 4705 prices dropping which usually indicates a newer model to be released. Thanks,

Blaez

It would be so great to see one with 128MB, WMP10 and integrated GPS ! But I have no idea if this is forthcoming.

Not happy with Audiovox and or Verizons BT issue response! Check this out! Gentlemen ! I wrote both Audiovox and Verizon regarding these BT issues with absolutley no resolve! Heres my e-mail… Glenn Linde) – 03/05/2005 03:49 PM I just bought 3 XV6600 PPC phones for my company and I am a power user as I am travel extensively. I need the bluetooth “fix” ASAP! 1: Bluetooth needs to stay on in sleep mode or be able to respond immediately upon “Wakeup”! When a phone call comes in and “wakes up” the phone it takes between 15 to 50 seconds for the bluetooth to connect with my headset. This is not acceptable! It doesn’t do this when it is “awake”, so to speak. How soon can you get a fix for this? I have installed your latest upgrade HA_VZW_13500_115_01140_WOC and the bluetooth improved but in this area it still lacks! And when I answer my clients with this delay it doesn’t bode well for Audiovox’s image with my clients either as they ask why the delay. This issue is paramount! 2: Do you plan on better software to work with MS voice command and BT headsets? And how about updating to Bluetooth’s most current version? Is that in your future plans. 3: Need “louder” multiple ringer choices (downloads) and louder speaker volume for earpiece when not using my BT headpiece. How soon can these issues be addressed? I know you have been aware of these issues for a while now as they are being complained about on every forum and website! Since this is your initial flagship…I hope keeping us happy with a great product would be your first concern! I do not wish to switch and I won’t if I know you are currently working on these issues. Please respond to this e-mail ASAP. Thank you. Sincerely, Glenn Linde Now Verizon’s response was ” Contact Audiovox” ….gee thanzx, they just passed the buck!!! Heres their reponse…… Verizon Wireless has not been given any release dates for a software patch that addresses these issues. If you would like further information on known issues and related software fixes, please contact Audiovox directly as they would be the company to develop the patch. Their direct number is 1-800-229-1235 option 1,1. I apologize for any inconvenience. And now, here is Audiovox’s reponse……. Response (DPRATT) – 03/07/2005 02:44 PM There is no upgrade for that specific Bluetooth issue that you mentioned. We have no plans to upgrade the software specifically for the MS Voice Command application. The Engineering department is looking into a fix for the ringer volume and the receive audio volume. I do not have a time line on when any of these upgrades will happen.

Thats it!!!

We need to do a class action “push” on Audiovox to fix this very annoying issue!!! ASAP!!!!!!

What do you guys say?!?!?!?! Are you with me!!!!!

Mad as hell? Yes, I too have had my fill of conversations with VZW that end with the words Audiovox or Microsoft. So I’m with you. We need to learn names of people at VZW who have position AND who at least SAY they stand behind their marketing mantras, “We never stop working for you” and “Your problem is our problem,” or whatever that one is. Lets say you get 5 names. Then 5 of us, you, me and 3 more forum readers, call one of these people once a week until we get answers that get us off the dime. I also travel a bunch; leaving tomorrow, but I’ll try to keep track of this space.

I too have had my share of issues with Verizon throughout the ownership of the 6600. But, in the latest round, I found them to be attentive and helpful……..we did not get some of the issues resolved, but the fact that they were listening and discussing was a huge step up from the service I was getting. I found that going back to the vendor who actually sold me the phone and raising hell with them got me the quickest response.

I found this to be just the opposite in my case. The “Rep” that i dealt with fed me a line every time I saw him. Right down to the “upgrade” that was available from their website on the day I asked about it. I never EVER received a call from him (as he said he would) in the 2 weeks I waited for my unit to come in, and NEVER received the peripherals I asked for with the unit. I had to buy everything from 3rd party vendors. When asking about a BT headset, he told me that Radio Shack sold them. How lame can you get?

Well, I have just HARD reset my device. I am seriously hoping that reverting back to the factory drivers will help me in my quest for the perfect pda/phone but I seriously doubt it. Tonight I couldn’t even ANSWER my phone. 3 rings by the time I put my HS810 to my ear, and hoping that it picked up before the 5th ring.. My manager on the other end could barely hear me for the static from my ear to the device (in my hand), and the sound volume quality didn’t help any. I tried switching back to the unit by closing the HS810, which left the call hanging in mid air with no sound out the build-in speaker, and the BT headset turned off. So I hung up, and turned BT OFF. I tried dialing him back, but it took 2-3 tries before the phone would let me hear the call without the BT ( headset with [?] hanging overhead ). After finally reconnecting via the device, I finally realized that this beautiful device was NOT designed to be a phone replacement for the average business man. A Word to the wise: If you are a business person and your time on the phone is valuable and irreplaceable, even with the added gadget/gizmo, consider something LESS of a pda and more of a phone.

With that, I will be returning my unit tomorrow within Verizon’s 15 Day return window for a “full refund” and hope that eventually the technology will be available for both phone and computer to co-exist in perfect harmony. Until then.. where’s my Laptop?

Does anyone know if the XV-6600 has a Widcomm Bluetooth drivers? If it does, this utility ( Bluetooth Tweaker) might help some of the problems described above. I’m not installing it until I verify the Widcomm driver, though. Found this on Handango’s Peoples Choice awards page. Here’s the URL:

Bummer bro sorry to see you go. I too am alittle upset with poor performance. Tonite at the movies I tried calling 3 times before I would hear it ring my caller. Also, after using MSVC to make a call it won’t ring and I get a message stating that it “can’t call please check # and try again”?!?!?!?! And I have been having BT drop offs also.Static… yes… occasionally.This phone is more than a little buggy!!!! Now when I’ve been on the road I’ve had minimal “buggy”occurances, but NONE would be nice! With that said…I think I will stick with the device. With Sprint releasing their version of this phone and more and more users buying them I’m sure some fixes are on the way! At least I hope so!!??

Is anyone else bugging Audiovox or is it only me!!!!!!!

[B]Just sent another e-mail to Audiovox…whos with me!!! [B]Come on gentlemen …just sent another e-mail to Audiovox…whos with me!!! Heres what I sent: #1: The Blue tooth connections need to support MS voice command 1.5 over the BT headsets. #2: And when incoming calls come into the unit from the “sleep” or “off” mode the Blue Tooth is WAAAAY too slow to respond. It takes 3 to 5 rings before the Blue tooth connects to the headset. #3: Now…the issue of STATIC…. if the headset is more than 3 feet away there is major static over the headset. Can’t go more than 10 feet from phone or it is very very bad reception. What happened to the 30 foot range of blue tooth? And it is not the headsets as everyone has been using different headsets on the web forums with the same results! #4: Understand you are addressing the low earpiece and ringer volume fix. Do you have a E.T.A.? We need a resolve to these issues and need to know you are addressing them promptly or we are returning these phones to Verizon. If you don’t have plans to work on these issues it doesn’t look good for your company or reputation. Awaiting your reply! Glenn Linde The reference number for your question is ‘050314-000002’. You should receive a response by e-mail from our support department within two business days.

Gentlemen….the squeaky wheel gets the oil!!!!! Lets lobby Audiovox!

I Just ordered the phone before seeing this site. I’m somewhat disappointed to hear all the complaints. You guys seem a lot more versed at this technical stuff than I, but I will try and follow along and will support the idea of writing Audiovox/Verizon ,etc. Man, and I really thought I did my research on this one. Any one know how to translate my Palm info (contacts, etc) to the Outlook Forum….I know this is a somewhat basic question – just give me a direction and I can take it from there. Thanks guys! I’ll check back again tomorrow evening.

Any word on whether this application will work with the Audiovox VX6600 and correct some of the aforementioned problems?

The big issue here is that the bluetooth stack is 1.1 on all headsets..VX6600 is 1.0? I am working with high level tech support at Verizon… Hopefully it will make them aware.. They seem very responsive to me and working on finding a resolution with Audiovox.

David, Here is the entire discourse with myself and Audiovox right now (as of today). This is my second round with them. The discussion starts from the bottom to the top. Notice Audiovox’s last response today is WAY off base! I posted a” rolleyes” there. And then my CLEAR rebuttal (winksmile). They need to work with US! Help guys! Question Reference #050314-000002 Subject: Still ……….Blue Tooth issues Product: Cell phone or PDA Software What type of issue is it: Technical\Installation Model Number: XV6600WOC Submitted: 03/14/2005 12:09 AM Last Updated: 03/16/2005 09:36 PM Status: Updated Discussion Thread

Customer (Glenn Linde) 03/16/2005 09:36 PM

I respectfully disagree. If the phone(screen)is on when there is a incoming call, the headset device beeps within 1 or 2 rings at most and can be answered. With the screen on there is no problem. But if there is a incoming call that “wakes up” the phone after “Sleep Mode” you can push the headset device button as much as you want and NO ANSWER! Not until the headset beeps will it accept the incoming call after Sleep Mode, and that isn’t till 3 to 5 rings later. In fact, after it wakes up from Sleep Mode, if you push the headset button before it beeps in the headset you won’t even connect!!! Try it for yourself! I have been using this device for 4 weeks now and have tried everything. If I could just hit the button on the first or second ring and connect you wouldn’t be getting this e-mail!!! I have done the upgrade and I am using the Motorola HS820…a quality headset. Is there another headset that will perform differently? From what I’ve read on several forums this happens to all different types and brands of headsets(HS). Please, this issue needs to be taken seriously. I can post more forum threads if you need more evidence! Glenn Linde

Response (DPRATT) 03/16/2005 09:44 AM

Bluetooth is set up to beep after every 3 rings on an incoming call. The delay you speak of is normal and it is not being addressed in an upgrade. If you hear the phone ringing you can still hit the key on the headset to answer the call before the Bluetooth device beeps. The upgrade on Audiovox.com for the XV6600 addresses the lost Bluetooth connection after Sleep Mode. I am assuming that you have done this upgrade. Customer (Glenn Linde) 03/15/2005 09:06 PM Is Audiovox going to at least acknowledge and address the Bluetooth “answering delay issue” that I stated down above as issue # 2 ???? If you need more corroboration just check out any of the cell/pda forums and you should have plenty feedback to work on these issues! Here are 3 web links to back this up:

These are just a few from just one website. Please tell me you are working on this! Glenn Linde Response (DPRATT) 03/14/2005 09:11 AM -The PPC6600 does not support Voice Command over Bluetooth. There has not been a lot of Static problems over the Bluetooth devices reported to us. The Engineering department is looking into the volume issues. I have no ETA’s on any of the upgrades. Customer (Glenn Linde) 03/14/2005 12:09 AM #1: The Blue tooth connections need to support MS voice command 1.5 over the BT headsets. #2: And when incoming calls come into the unit from the “sleep” or “off” mode the Blue Tooth is WAAAAY too slow to respond.

I have really had the same response from Verizon as David has. They haven’t come to any conclusions yet, but they are listening and being fairly upfront about the things that they are doing. Yes, they do make it an Audiovox problem, but truth is – it is an Audiovox problem. Verizon just needs to turn up the heat a notch on Audiovox.

Think Outside Bluetooth Keyboard

The Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard is the perfect productivity companion to your smart phone, PDA, Tablet, Media Center PC or notebook – almost any device that has Bluetooth supports this hot new product! We take a look deeper into this highly anticipated Bluetooth keyboard.

The Stowaway is the most popular PDA keyboard to date, and has become the standard by which other keyboards are judged. Why? When unfolded open, the keyboard is a reasonably rigid keyboard with full-sized keys and notebook key travel. When not in use, it folds into a neat little rectangle not much bigger than my 43550 iPAQ Pocket. You won’t have to adjust your typing style to use the Bluetooth Stowaway.

Open the spring latch, unfold the keyboard and the panels lock together and you’ve got a rigid keyboard. This means you can use the keyboard on uneven surfaces, previous models of the stowaway had seems a bit loose making it hard. Direct center, there’s a flip-up stand that supports your iPAQ for easy viewing when it’s docked via the sync port to the Stowaway.

When I first opened up the Bluetooth Stowaway I received 2 AA batteries, a slim and durable keyboard and the required software. Once you load the CD you will notice the same process involved with loading any other PocketPC software, installation was quick and easy. If you look on the back of the keyboard it specifically requests that you press ctr,Fn(Blue)+Fn(Green) to enable the keyboard to be paired. Once you turn the keyboard on you need to launch the included software to scan for the Bluetooth keyboard. This process took me 15 seconds to find the keyboard and pair!! I know many of you probably are saying no way, but it was true I did this over 5 times! Once the unit is paired you are ready to go. The software included gives the end user some flexibility such as key repeat rate, key repeat delay, Caps lock notification and it also gives the user 10 function hot keys to assign certain tasks.

The keyboard as you can see in these pictures isn’t much larger than a 4355 iPAQ PocketPC which makes it extremely desirable for those people who travel a lot. Overall I have to say ThinkOutside did a fabulous job with the design and overall appearance of the Bluetooth Keyboard. If you are a person who travels a lot and needs the portability this is your answer! Great job!

This unit is not being sold as of today but can be preordered NOW

What’s a moblog?

There are a lot of great places to visit to pick up information. Some are clearly better than others but that is probably a matter of personal taste on what you think is terrific. I love reading articles that Suzanne Ross write. They are always, clear, concise, interesting and most importantly, informative. Suzanne wrote a neat piece on how to Create Your Own Mobile Blog. In part, she said the following: Quote

First, what’s a moblog? A moblog, or a mobile blog, is an online record of anything you feel like sharing with the world, whether they want it or not. The difference between moblogging and regular blogging is that you use your phone or Pocket PC to post text or pictures.

There are obvious advantages to this. If you get inspired in the middle of a meadow, at your favorite local watering hole, or on a road trip, you won’t have to wait until you can get back to your desktop to send your thoughts and photos to the world.

Though moblogging isn’t new, it has been gaining popularity and attention, though I don’t think the uses of it have been fully explored. It seems a perfect way, for instance, for a real estate agent to show new properties to clients. I’ve been looking around for a house lately, and I’m frustrated by the lack of pictures on real estate sites. If an agent had a mobile blog, she could take pictures and immediately send them to her moblog.

If you want to find out more about moblogging, click HERE to read Suzanne’s tips.

Trust Discovery Tool

Trust Digital, a leading provider of enterprise mobile security software solutions, announced the creation of the Trust Alliance Program (TAP), a value-added reseller program designed to support market interest in its forensic mobile device tool, Trust Mobile Discovery. With Intelligence/DOD contractors ManTech International Corporation and CSCI using and reselling the patent pending forensic tool, Trust Digital is now seeing growing demand from Government Consulting Groups, Security and Risk Analysis Companies, and Vulnerability Assessment Tool providers.

Trust Mobile Discovery forensically scans the network, creating a historical view of PDA and Smartphone assets. Critical to government agencies and enterprises looking to support compliance requirements, this tool provides organizations with the ability to quickly size mobile device penetration as part of their mobile security policy development. Furthermore, no deployment of software onto PCs or mobile devices is required. The product makes forensic analysis possible through its ability to analyze data for remnants of PDA and Smartphone information that effectively recreates device historical usage patterns from the moment introduced into the system.

Gartner’s view concerning the need for enterprises to assess and address their potential risk and liability is clear. “The typical mobile device contains a lot of sensitive corporate information,” said John Girard, VP and Research Director, Gartner. “If a laptop, personal digital assistant (PDA) or phone is lost or stolen, or it is accessed improperly from the Internet or a shared visitor network, the company and user must deal with the potential business impact of exposures of stored data and network credentials. Even if the targeted use of the misplaced information is minimal, the company and the user can be held accountable for violating contracts of confidentiality, as well as civil and government regulations for the storage and safe harbor of business information.”

“ManTech International Corporation integrated Trust Digital’s mobile discovery capability into our BTK compliance tool to help our federal government clients better understand the issues associated with mobile device deployment across their organizations,” said Keith Ferguson, an executive director, ManTech Security Technologies Corporation, a subsidiary of ManTech International Corporation. “BTK is an easy-to-use software tool that verifies and validates that information systems are compliant with established security policies, regulations and guidance. Government agencies, as well as enterprises need to first understand the extent of their PDA and Smartphone vulnerability before attempting to deploy mobile security policies.”

Trust Digital is the only enterprise mobile security company to offer an infrastructure software solution that easily integrates with existing security infrastructure protocols. Trust Digital’s multi-layer approach is designed to address the growing number of threats at the network mobile edge, not simply those threats explicit to any given device. Trust Digital’s flagship product, TRUST Enterprise Secure 4.0, is an enterprise application which runs on standard Microsoft Servers and PCs as well as most mobile device platforms including products based on the most recent versions of the Palm and Pocket PC/MS Smartphone platforms.

“Trust Digital’s forensic mobile discovery ability is a competitive differentiator for the Company in the mobile security market,” said Nick Magliato, CEO, Trust Digital. “We are making this forensic mobile discovery tool widely available through VAR channels in an effort to raise awareness of the compliance, regulatory and security risks associated with unmanaged personal use of PDAs and Mobile Devices.”

Trust Digital’s products are cross-platform FIPS 140-2 certified.

About Trust Digital

How long is your blue tooth “DELAY”?????

Well I’m lovin this phone and I’m not a MICRO detail hater. But I also am a power user being a Field Supervisor for a major industrial mfg co. I use this thing 12 hours + a day and receive many many calls and the thing that annoys me is the BT delay. I use the moto HS820 which is a little low at max volume for me but I love it’s style. Anyway when a call comes in and the unit wakes up from its sleep mode it takes anywhere from 15 to 50 secs to connect back up to my headset.

Are you all have this problem also??

Maybe we should berage the AUDIOVOX website in a sort of “CLASS ACTION” email campaign till they give us BT software satisfaction!

I have the HS810, and love the sound. My wife however says it doesn’t have half the sound quality as my wired Plantronics on the other end. I”m using the BT3500 and don’t have a long wakeup time for the connect. Just the annoying semi-static and lack of sound quality on the device end i’m sure.

I use the BT800. Delay time is only 4 to 5 seconds. Had the HS810 and hated it. Could only walk 3 ft. from devise and sound quality was not great. BT800 has great sound quality and I haven’t had any problems with the volume like I did with the HS810.

I use the Motorola HS820 and HS810. I have virtually no delay. Maybe a second or two. However, the sound is not particularly great in noisy environments. I am looking for a headset that can really pump up the volume in most typical environments.

I’m a new owner of a w/Camera version [3500 build by default from what I can see] and a BT200 headset. If the call comes in and wakes the PPC out of sleep then it may have a 2-5 second lag between when I hit the button and BT will answer. When I use it in the car, plugged into the cig adapter, and a call comes in there’s almost no delay so it’s definitely the wakeup sequence. There is some more static on the BT than my Nokia 3650, but it’s almost on par with my older SE T68i (i.e. body between phone and ear == static) which is one of the reasons I changed to the 3650 originally. I’m living with the BT on the 6600 for now but if I’m tempted to try the 3900 build to see if it’s better.

[EDIT 4/1/2005]: Ok, so NOW I see the longer delay getting this puppy started. Oh yeah – I’ve had calls go to voicemail before I got the BT headset to pickup when the device was _really_ asleep.

I have the 6600WOC and had the HS820 but kept losing the pairing. Got a Jabra BT250… keep losing the pairing with that as well. Ran the new software. Even replaced the phone and “nope.” It comes down to the fact that this high-end phone should never have been shipped with Bluetooth 1.0. Audiovox said their tech are working on another patch. Whatever. If there are any petitions going around. Sign me up.

blue tooth keyboard problems

I purchased a hp bluetooth keyboard and I love it except….
Whenever I select function and end to send the cursor to the end of the page it goes but it imputs a # sign at the end when it gets there, also one other thing…. sometimes after I type and I want to move the directional arrows on the keyboard to move the cursor up accross or whatever it won’t respond. However, if I there is a space between the cursor and the last word I typed it will work. I tried to enter into the options to see if these things were accidentally inputed however I couldn’t find anything.

handymanski I agree with tom_tui, try the new updated driver. Here is a link to the news item I put up about the new driver.

Check to see if your iPAQ is listed: HP BT Keyboard Driver Update

I have already looked at your update but it doesn’t mention the 4700 as one of the models which can be updated with a patch. Any other ideas? Or do you think I should try it anyway?

Return it, you will experience many other problems with that phone. It is a phone that works like the old brick phones from the 80’s.

Cardo Scala 500 Has anyone used this headset? It seems to keep losing the partnership, not sure when or why. The ipaq shows that it is connected to the headset, yet the calls are not routed to it. If I delete it from the device and re-partner it, it works again; but only for a little while. Any suggestions, or experience with the Scala? I love the look and feel of it, and I’m told it’s crystal clear at the other end, even with wind and car noise. Thanks for the help! I’m new here, with a new 6315, having a devil of a time, to put it mildly. T-mobile is sending a new device, as this one (1 week old) locks up 5 times every hour. Looking forward to getting to know you here.

iPhono headset

I give iPhono 5 stars for music, spoken word and phone calls. The dongle improves low volume on 6315.

Difference between Ipaq 6315 and 6340 & 6365?

Can anyone tell me the difference between these three Ipaq models: 6315, 6340, and 6365? The reason I ask is that HP has posted updates for the 6340 and 6365 which include some fixes for Blue Tooth. I’m wondering if a) either of those updates would work for my 6315, or b) this means that a update for the 6315 is just around the corner?

alarm777, if you look back over this thread – which is 5 pages long – there are many guides and links to guides to get this working, which it should. Make sure your headset is fully charged also. I hope you get it sorted. Let us know.

iPAQ and Jabra 250 Bluethooth

Hi! Just found this site looking for a new Bluetooth Headset. Purchased a Jabra 250 Headset at Christmas to go with my T Mo iPAQ (Thanksgiving). It would not pair. T Mo told me that would have an upgrade the end of the first week in Jan 2005. Called T Mo 3rd week in Jan and was told to download HP 6315 upgrade. Did–still no bluetooth. In Feb I tried T Mo again and they transferred me to HP. After 3 transfers the were sending me back to T Mo and I got disconnected. Called Jabra and they told me the 250 would never work with the 6315 because they use Blu tth Ver 1.0 and the Jabra is Ver 1.1. She said that the bluetooth version is not software but a chip and so it could not be upgraded and I would never be able to use my Jabra. Return time to Mobile Planet expired, of course. She said to tell T Mo to give me a Motorola 810 or 820 which will work because they are Version 1.0. I am surprised that T MO is telling people that they are going to upgrade and also that some people got the Jabra 250 to work. I will try their instructions. I am perplexed by so much miss-information. A definitive answer would be great. I don’t want and can’t afford to spend another $75.00 for a headset if I don’t need to spend it. Any replies or help will be appreciated.

Thanks jonsam

jonsam – I am also somewhat perlexed regarding the conflicting information contained herein. I have recieved the same info by T-Mobile, HP and Jabra. I was told by several T-Mo people that the sony ericsson products work resonably well, but I have yet to try one since I can’t identify one that will difintively work. Like you, any consistant information would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Logitech Mobile Freedom works well

I gotta say, the Logitech Mobile Freedom is pretty easy to use and works with the 6315 without a hitch. When coming out of standby, the headset it still there and works. If you power off the headset you need to re-establish the BT connection with the ipaq. Seems like normal operation though. Once paired, it stays paired all day long. It’s nice to have a BT headset for media player too. When you charge the headset, it powers itself off. So, after you unplug it, you have to re-pair.

The volume in the earpiece seems to vary but I’m sure it the phone and not the headset. Some calls are louder than others. Come to think about it, I remember having this problem with my other phones used on T-Mo’s network.

Jabra Freespeak 250 Success

After my Motorola 810 finally died on me I decided to try another brand headset. The Motorola was great when it worked but the longer I used it, the more troublesome it became. I decided to take a chance on the Jabra 250 since Best Buy said I could return it in 30 days if I was not satisfied. Well, I’ve had the headset since Feb. 16th and it is working fine. I had no trouble pairing the headset and it was up and running in just a few minutes. Volume is fine, I can pick-up and dsiconnect using the multi-function button on the headset and callers can hear me fine! The headset is very comfortable for all-day wearing. It also stays in place much better than the 810 ever did. I have had several minor issues. 1.) The gel earpiece has a tendency to twist as there is no “postive stop” to keep it locked in position. I periodically have to realign it which is a mild inconvenience. 2.) Talk and standby times are not nearly as good as on the Motorola. I wear the headset 8 to 10 hrs a day and have had the battery die on me twice. This NEVER happened with the 810. 3.) The charger, although small, is a two-piece contraption with a docking station that doubles as a belt clip for the headset. The Motorola used the same charger as on many of their cell phones…a much better arrangement. 4.) I still have occasional calls where the caller cannot hear me at all, although I can hear the caller fine. I think that this is likely a Bluetooth issue, not a Jabra problem. 5.) Range is not as good as with the 810. Anthing past 20′ and the signal degrades significantly.

I’m not sure if I’ve been lucky or if the headset I purchased is an updated version of the 250. In any event, I’m glad I bought it. Now, if T-Mobile would only get off their a— and release the ROM update I’d be really happy!

Update … the earpiece broke today … it works great, but if the earpiece breaks easily this is no good … Belkin will replace it, but it won;t get to me until next week … so I’ll just return it to CompUSA …

I just purchased the Jabra 250 … I had it setup and working in a minute, incoming and outgoing call are OK … definitely louder than the Belkin… easier on the ears too …

We’ll see how this holds up …

I keep losing the comunication with the HDW-2, and of course this would always happen in the middle of a call.

I am thinking of getting the Plantronics. I hope this will work better.
