Feature: The BlueAnt Supertooth 3 will announce caller ID (digits). If the number is in the phone book of your phone, it'll announce the NAME.
Problem: My BlueAnt Supertooth 3 won't speak names. It will announce the phone NUMBER, but not the name from the address book.
If you've read the MobileBurn review
, there's an issue with Blackberry setup, and it's true: You gotta do a manual address book upload (Options > Bluetooth > Transfer Address Book)
This problem is documented in the user manual, but the MobileBurn review seems to hint they got around the problem.
I even called BlueAnt's technical support who had me do a Blackberry battery pull, reset the Blueant (green button + Volume Up until you hear tones, which by the way also speaks the version number).
Nada! Only speaks phone number. Better than NOTHING but still...
BlueAnt thinks my unit is defective. They've asked me to test it with another phone before sending it for a replacement; I'll try it with my wife's SE w810i later tonight.
Has anybody else tried the Blueant Supertooth 3 with a Blackberry?
(PS: incoming/outgoing voice quality is superb, like the older Supertooth Light I also own.)
