Is the bluetooth radio on the pearl just that weak, or is it simply that these two products don't like each other? Or is my pearl faulty?
I have to say that it must be the Jabra. I have seen some criticisms of it around the Net and here in BBF. I can't recall if range was one of the negatives about it.
Based on reviews and the bargain aspect of it, I snapped up four of the Nokia BH-900 on eBay for about $30 average each. These originally sold for $130 back about 18 months ago.
I have used it from about 30' away or so, with walls blocking the signal. Has worked fine.
