Why's trying to get a bluetooth headset to work with a BB such a crap shoot
 
I've had my Curve for about 1 month now and i just dont get it, Bluetooth connectivity sucks! I've read post after post saying that their Bluetooth headset doesnt connect or is just staticy. I have tried 3 different bluetooth headsets, a Plantronics 520, an older Motorola and RIMs own HS-655 and nothing but static as soon as I put it in my pocket, the Plantronics actually worked for a week fine when I got it. I use a Motorokr S9 to listen to my music and this works just fine, I can walk 20 feet away no problem, so whats the problem here? Every other phone I've owned I just bought a Bluetooth headset and it paired, it was that easy. Is this a hardware issue with Blackberry's. or firmware. I have upgraded, downgraded firmware (os) and no luck. If anyone can give me the magic answer here I would appreciate it. I have cleared the IT policy so there shouldnt be anything blocking the connection, there is no way as far as I can tell to see bluetooth signal strengh is there?

I might just have to goto Best Buy and purchase every bluetooth headset they have until I find one that works.

Don't put the BT headset in your pocket, place it in your ear! :?

Really though, over the past 4 or 5 BBs, and as many BT headsets, different brands, I have never had a static-y earpiece. I am guessing the BB in your pocket could be the issue. For one, that is not a great place to keep your BB. Never had a problem with one pairing, either.

Haven't had an issue with my 8700,7290,8100 or 8800 except for one BT headset (forget which on). Except with the 8100 I get the same static if I put in pocket (don't do that often)

true true.

and pockets don't give you that much sought-after dork factor.
