Default UMA + Bluetooth = No Go ? ? ?

Please Login to Remove!

I don't know if this is not supposed to work or what.......when I am connected to my home wireless network on UMA my 8320 on Tmo works great unless I am trying to use my BT Headset. When connected to both (UMA and BT) and try to make a call I get the "call failed" error message and the call is dropped. My phone then goes through the Edge-GSM-UMA search mode and after a few settles back to UMA. WIthout the BT headset being linked the system works fine. Is this normal or has anyone else ran into this? I will have to go into a Starbucks and see what happens when I am on their system with the BT being turned on and see if I get similar results.
I feel way more like I do now then I did earlier!

This is a known issue with the T-Mobile OS on the 8320. Some BT headsets work (like my Moto HS810) with UMA and some do not (like my Insignia NS-BTHDP stereo headset) becasue they operate on the same 2.4GHz range as the Wi-fi.

The good news is that the new 4.5 OS for the curve fixes the BT/UMA compatibility problem, the bad news is that T-Mobile hasn't released a version of 4.5 OS yet.
