Default 8100 Bluetooth headset headaches

Please Login to Remove!

Good Evening all,
I have an 8100 with the 4.5.0.124 BIOS installed. Up until lately I have been using a Sony Ericsson BT headset with no issues. I decided to purchase a new headset and so far have tried a BlueAnt X3 and a Jabra BT8040. For some strange reason, neither one is usable. Both have static so excessive that I cant hear anyone, and they cant hear me. The Sony Ericsson still sounds perfect. The Jabra will work, provided I hold the handset directly beside the headset, but at a distance of more than a foot, it drops the connection. Has anyone had any experience with this? I'm already out a pile of money on two headsets that I cant return, and I'm at a loss as to what to try next.

Anyone?

Thanks!

Have you tried the new headsets with another device? Might be a good way to determine if the probelm is in the headsets or the BlackBerry.

I tried just that last night. It's very odd. All of the headsets we have now (4 of them) work perfectly with my wife's Curve, but only two work with my 8100. My phone is only a year old and works perfectly with my old SonyEricsson headsert, as well as a cheap Jabra, but with the BlueAnt X3 and Jabra 8040 it's useless. I tried upgrading the BIOS but to no avail. Does it sound like my phone is defective?

Thanks!
