Funny, I have never had any of those problems. My bluetooth headset connects (by connect, I mean the time from opening the boom mic on my HS850 till I can hear something) quickly, with virtually no wait time (about 1 sec....JUST enough to notice it.) The voice quality is clear, and I have only had a problem ONCE with getting a low signal area, and that's because I was outside, which I've heard can happen with many phones.

Bluetooth file transfers also go off without a hitch. I did notice that bluetooth is a little SLOW, but the technology wasn't made for speed, it was made for convienence.

I've been told also that cordless phones and wireless routers can cause excess static in bluetooth....I've never experienced that, and I have 2 cordless phones and a wireless router. I say props to Moto for a job well done. This is the phone I have been waiting for.

The only thing they "dropped the ball" on was the i930. They needed to put Windows Mobile 5 on it, and they needed to include bluetooth.

Except for still having the same old standard moto menu's and not being able to play with a windows mobile smartphone, I would say this was a great job for nextel, and probably a life saver for them too with iden being phased out eventually. Now if we could just do something with that $300 pricetag.....
