Default 8300 and Plantronics 520, static when using bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

I have read a few post here so maybe someone has had this problem. I purchased a Plantronics 520 BT headset which is compatible with my Curve 8300. I am able to pair the two together but when I make calls the headset cant be any further then 10" from the phone without becoming staticy. It did work fine for a while but I have done a few OS changes (I can't remember which OS I used at first), and now if I put it in my holster and try to talk it goes nuts. I tried 2 other BT headsets, one was another 520 and a Motorola and had the same issue so I assume its the phone. The other thing is I bought a Mororokr S9 to listen to music and that works fine, I can walk 20 feet away without a problem. Is there any know issues with certain firmware for the 8300 and which if any should I go back to.

v4.2.2.194 (platform
