Question Jawbone 2 not compatible with WiFi on?

Please Login to Remove!

I have the Jawbone I. I was thinking about buying the Jawbone 2 and read this comment from a user on CNET. Any truth to this? Does anyone have a 8320 with WiFi on experienced this?

"Incompatible with my BB 8320" - Aliph Jawbone 2 (silver) user opinion and rating - CNET Reviews

"I had such high hopes for the Jawbone 2 and was thrilled by its fit, comfort and appearance. Sadly, I've had a terrible time trying to use the Jawbone 2 with my BlackBerry 8320. The headset has some incompatibility issue that makes it impossible to use. While connected to my 8320, all of my incoming calls are cut off within 5 seconds of answering and any call I place is dropped within 15 seconds. As soon as I turn off the Jawbone 2, my 8320 works perfectly. I know it sounds bizarre, but it's the truth. I actually had T-Mobile send me a replacement 8320 because I thought it was the source of the problem. I'd like to know if anyone else experienced similar problems.

Updated

After lots of e-mails with Aliph and some experimentation on my own, I found the source of my problem. For some as of right now unknown reason, the 8320's WiFi is incompatible with my Jawbone 2. I found out by leaving my loft to get the mail. As I got to the mailbox a call came in and sounded excellent. Stunned, I placed a few calls and all of them worked perfectly. I noticed that the WiFi indicator was off and I was on T-Mobile's network. When I returned to my loft I placed a call when the WiFi turned on again. All the problems recurred. I turned off WiFi and the J2 worked great. I'm now at a point where all I have to do is set my Mobile Network Options > Connection Preference to Mobile Network Preferred to get the J2 to work. If I set it to WiFi Preferred, the J2 won't work until I reset it to Mobile Network Preferred. That's some effed up stuff."

That's most likely a problem with the 8320 while on UMA. Bluetooth and UMA don't play nicely together.

the original Jawbone1 doesnt exhibit this issue, as reported by many members on this forum.

here's a list of headsets for the curve 8320, based on user experience. T-Mobile 8320 Curve bluetooth on UMA compatibility list

Guess I am sticking with JB1 until this gets resolved then.
