Sony Ericsson T608
Sony t608 and Jabra 250 earphone: too many dropped calls
The phone was purchased from Sprint in June, 2004 along with a Jabra 250 headset. I am on my 3rd T608 as of Jan. 14, 2005. Why?
I am a high time user- 3500 minutes +/month. It is a very important business tool. I use the phone for voice communications only. I do not know how or care to connect it to my laptop. I have had a plague of communications problems:
a. Dropped calls, the phone goes blank during a conversation, even while it is plugged in and recharging. I have had the phone drop the signal 3 and 4 times in a 5 minute call that was well within the proximatey of multiple Sprint towers.
b. Grabbled conversations: i have had people tell me not to call them on T-608.
both a. and B. are my chief complaints. Sprint shruggs ...
But I don't use mine with a BT headset at the moment (BT quality isn't good enough for "office" use, IMHO, at least not yet/not for my clients). One thing I can think of is the SEt61c, another phone I used, would occasionally lose signal here and there when using BT. There were rumors that BT and CDMA were either not compatible, or were less compatible (harder to get to play nice) than BT and GSM. I don't know if that's true - my V710 seems to handle it just fine. I did use the T608 for a long time with a motorola BT headset last year, and I don't recall having any problems.
That's a toug...
