I don't want to depend on "seeing" an incoming call, I want to hear the ring or tone in the headset.
I am using a plantronics hands-free earpiece. Could it be the headset or do I need to activate something in the menu?
Some earpieces don't ring. I found that wierd the first time I came across one and promptly took it back. The Plantronics pieces I've used have all been able to ring, though. Double check the manual, but it's probably just not a feature your earpiece offers.
I have had the best luck with Motorola earpieces. I have an Oakley Razrwire that attaches to sunglasses and a Motorola earpiece that uses a AAA battery for night driving. Both work very well and ring with an incoming call.
