The Samsung WEP200 and Flamingo worked fine on the new firmware and still work fine on the older version. Go figure.
I am using the 4.3.1 beta and here is my story.
When I pair and connect I have great streaming audio sound and great call sound!!! If I turn the unit off and back on it connects just fine and the streaming audio sounds fine...but I get a ton of crackling when I make a call, too the point that I can't hear the caller and/or they can't hear me. If I delete the device and re-pair and connect it is clear a as a whistle.
Anyone else have this experience. I am going with the "I got a dud" scenario for now and will return and try another one but if I can't get it to work when I turn it off and on it is useless to me.
