Motorola Q and Sony Erricson 610a Bluetooth headphone

I was told these were compatable, so I bought then 610a. The Q does search it out when I command it to add, but won't pair when asked to search. Am I doing something wrong or isn't it compatable. If it is how do i get it to pair and work.

Having problems getting good reception with my Bluetooth Headset

Hi guys, I'm having problems getting good reception with my Bluetooth Headset

I bought the Nokia BH-200 and I had problems. Outside I couldn't hear anything despite no winds. Sometimes inside it was great but more than often, NOT.

I then got the Plantronics Explorer 320 and the same thing there. The Plantronics is more comfortable and the volume is a little lower but I like it. Again, it sounds most of the time like it's breaking up kind of.

I then was told by a guy that he had never been able to find a bluetooth headset that worked for him so he didn't use his.

I considered one with a wire instead but I saw that it didn't have the features the bluetooth headsets had with the button that you can go directly to the Voice Dial if y...

i860 Motorola Hard Install Car Kit Cradle Problem

I’m hoping someone can come up with a solution to this problem. I recently had a problem with my Motorola Hard Install Car Kit Cradle. Whenever I attach my i860 to the cradle I hear a pulsing sound coming from the speaker for the car kit. When I disconnect it there’s no problem. I tried using different i860s and still have the same problem. I checked the fuses to see if it’s a power problem and they are ok. The reception is fine coming from the antenna. I also checked the pins on the cradle and contacts on the phone cleaning it with an alcohol swab. I’m thinking it has something to do with the cradle. Any ideas or suggestions would be grateful.

Bluetooth Headset for the VX9800?

Hi guys,

I'm getting the VX9800 and I need a Bluetooth headset for it.

My requirements are is that it's easy to wear. I have a tendency to NOT like stuff on my ear so it has to be comfortable. I do NOT like stuff that goes IN the ear because my ear canals are very tight. I am very comfortable with the Plantronics wired headsets CS-300RS which I've had for years on my cordless phones at home and I can have them on for hours.

Also, I do walk outside a bit so I'd like something that will work when there is a bit of wind.

I like the features of the Nokia headsets as they have all kinds of stuff you can do from the headset.

Also, I want CLEAR sound and since my ears are going bad, good volume.

I don't really intend to listen to ...

Philips VOX130 Bluetooth Lapel Earbud

I'm getting a Moto Q to replace my V710 (Verizon Class Action) and I'm interested in getting a "discrete" B/T headset/earbud that I can also use to listen to MP3 on my handset.

This seems to do the job and is surprisingly inexpensive. I like the fact that I won't look like a Trekkie while talking/listening.

Here's the rub: I can't find a heckuva lot of info on it anywhere on-line (including Philips USA's own site). Anybody know anything substantive about this product (especially real-world usage & doubly-so with a Moto Q)?

Will this work as a stereo headset for this Verizon phone (as with the Moto HT820 headset)? It seems that I've read elsewhere that there's a different protocol (A2?)for stereo audio; I'm wondering if I'm going to...

Pioneer DEH-P980BT bluetooth car kit ?s

Hello, I just purchased the Pioneer DEH-P980BT car stereo with built in bluetooth kit and I'm having several problems:
1. It doesn't connect automatically when I get in the car (even though it is set to connect automatically).

2. The phone book won't transfer over. Every time I click "phone book transfer" the phone disconnects from the bluetooth connection.

3. I can't use the "voice dial" feature.

Does anybody have any advice? It is the same thing as the DEH-P9800BT so if you have that and it works let me know.

I have software version 04 of the V3C and it is set up with a hands free bluetooth profile.

Please help!

External Attenna for Treo 650

I just moved to Maryland, just outside of DC. While everywhere I go I have great cell reception, I have hardly any reception in or around my new home. Apparently my new house sits down in a bit of a valley and I am surrounded by big ass old trees that are blocking my signal. I spoke with Verizon and they said I can get an external antenna and that should solve my problem. My question then becomes, which one is best and works best for the Treo 650? I would like to get a wireless mount so that I don't have to be stationary to the antenna.

Samsung A-900 OEM battery charging cradle


I was wondering of anyone knows about this charging cradle. ... »

According to Samsung's website you plug your travel charger into the cradle and then insert your battery into the cradle to charge it.

So, will it work with the extended battery that Sprint is selling and is supposedly OEM but not on Samsung's website?

Also, any experiences with using the cradle?

Thanks much in advance.
