i870 and bluetooth headset ??'s

I have the i870 and a HS850 headset whenever I'm on the bluetooth and the person I'm talking to is in their car, they cannot hear me. They say I'm breaking up. As soon as they stop driving its fine. Its not the headset I use it with my Cingular 8125 and its fine. I have also used it with 10+ other bluetooth phones with no issues. ( I used to work for Cingular COR) I did experience a similiar issue though with the LG CG300 which is also a PTT phone. It too had the same issues as the i870, I just thought it was a shi**y phone cause it was an LG. Anyone else experience anything like this? Its driving me nuts. Also is there another headset that you would reccommend? I like the flip on the HS850. Or is it my phone? Its just 2.5 months old and has...

Please, help with uploading mpeg videos to Boost i875.

I have a Boost i875 and I can put mp3's on the phone I just don't know how to put mpeg videos on their. I have mpeg videos and I paste them into the video folder and when I check the card from the phone and their not there. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's a great phone, it would be even cooler if I can get videos to play.

I am having a real problem with mp3's. I will copy and paste them to the memory card and only 1 will show up on the phone but all will show on my computer. I did go to the Nextel store and that was kind of pointless, they told me to go to Best Buy and get a bigger card. So I got the 512mb and I am still having the same problem. Any suggestions short of throwing it in the jacuzzi?

i870 v i860

I currently have the i860. Decent phone I guess. But one thing that really pisses me off is the battery life of my i860. I can't go a day with out charging it. And im not a big talker.

So my question(s) to the old i860 owners and now i870 owners is the battery life better? How is the megapix camera? I read that there is an actuall alarm if i have my phone on vibrate will it still alarm?

Thanks in advance.

I875 Memory Card Bay Broke

Hello, I was using my memory card for the first time and inserted it correctly into the memory bay. I noticed it wasn't clicking and I removed it, well I try again, it didn't click. So I remove the card and notice this small plastic piece is broken. So the plastic piece falls out, I still have it, and there is not a spring lodged in the memory bay. I guess this is the spring that is supposed to pop the memory card out when you push it.

Can someone let me know what Motorola will do to fix this and also has this happened to anyone else? I wasn't pushing hard or anything, in fact, I was applying normal pressure to get it to click, didn't click. So, now I can play my music or use my images . . . phone still works, but this sucks.
