Default Choose between headset or handsfree if headset supports it

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I successfully paired my HBH-65 to the 7100t. I have successfully used both the handsfree and headset profiles. I would prefer to only use the handsfree profile but cannot find a way to only use this profile. At one point I could turn on the HBH-65 and it would automatically pair and be in headset mode. I cannot duplicate this behavior.

Any ideas?

Did you create the handsfree profile, or did it show up when the HBH-65 connected your BlackBerry? Could you delete the headset profile?

I'm expecting a Jabra BT800 Bluetooth Headset that works better with handsfree profile. I'll let you know how it works for me.

Yea, I bought the BT800... I am taking it back.

good headset- bad design. they put lots of features in and forgot ergonomics. Lean over and it will almost fall off your head.

I ordered a BT250v by the way

an update on the BT250 model. I think it will be the ultimate winner (after using a Logitech freespeak, a Plantronics M3500, both Motorolas, and now the BT800)

Unclear about your update as you said you think it "will" be the ultimate winner .. so did you receive the BT250? did it meet expectation? is it the winner over the Plantronics M3500?

whats the difference between the headset and handsfree profiles? I have used a Sony Ericsson HBH35 and now the Nokia HS-4W and both had both profiles. However that said, I didnt change any settings and they both work fine.

So yeah whats the difference between the profiles?

Default You need to make the BT a trusted device

It's in the BT settings menu. Forgot exactly where.

I got my 250v yes, and have been using it for about a week now- it's definetly the best bluetooth headset I have used. Good range, vibrate functionality, handsfree profile, and VERY loud.

Why don't you post an indepth review comparing each of these units. I have started a thread on Bluetooth headset reviews in the hardware section. This would be most helpful to everyone struggling to find a headset that will meet their needs. Include your criteria for selection.
