    i remember the first time i ever read about this new wireless technology it was on a ericsson t28 and it had me awe struck,well its been a few years now since this technology was born and IMHO it should have straightened itself out a long long time ago :thumbsdow even now on the new nokia 8800 its still an issue and just isn`t a reliable media imo.

    i have had 4 phones now that have had bluetooth and everyone of them has had issues with the bluetooth side,from not connecting calls to not transferring files etc etc and i think that this issue should be resolved.it use to be the first thing i looked for on a new phone but as of now i might as well just use a corded handsfree kit and transfer files from pc to phone via a usb connection as the hassle and random connectivity of the phone vs headset and phone vs pc is just far to frustrating and to much hassle.

    so what do you think is this just a misplaced rant or do you agree ?

    I have had no problems with:

    K700i
    V600
    E720
    6630

    the major issue for me is the one which i use the most and thats the headset connection.i have had a d500,p900,k700 and a gdx50 and everyone of them has had issues with various headsets.when paired up it wont connect to an incoming call if its not that it wont connect to the phone etc etc.

    silverback I have a mate "Gobblit" who works for the link he is pretty hot on Bluetooth, what works and what doesnt etc some combos are much better than others Jabra and SE seems to be one of the best but i would think an SE headset and SE handset should be seemlesss, Low battery on my Jabra is the biggest issue, gonna get a 250 (have 200 at the mo) when i need to have the headset working........

    you would think so wouldnt you :rotfl: but i had a hbh 35 when i first bought the p900 and had nothing but hassle with it and there was a massive thread over at (i think it was howard forums) complaining about the bluetooth headset connectivity and sony where emailed by most of the forum members and there response was pretty much head in the sand so that was my firat an worst experience with a high end phone and i wont be buying a top end sony mobile again.

    the d500 is a hell of a lot better but its still not perfect and it seems to be struggling with my akono 6600 headset yet seems fine with my hb35.

    Don't leave any bluetooth enabled devices switched on in your car when you leave it parked..
    And check out 'blue sniper'.
    Architecture of bluetooth is the issue, some will have no probs, some will have a few, some will have many. Some will have their cars nicked/broken into..

    (resisting Mae West quote.....)
    agreed - just an example of the fundamental flaws in the technology.
    I believe that car crime/thefts has hanged its profile since bluetooth - not something the guys selling the kit will talk about though..
