I have tried multiple headsets with no luck. What i want bluetooth the most for while at home is the At&t bluetooth phone so if I recive a call I can answer my cell from any phone in the house. It works great with edge but no luck with UMA. There is a serious problem with the the incapatability of bluetooth and UMA. I know I can use speaker phone and a wired set but it is broken if I cannot use a feature of the phone while on UMA.
UMA is a great feature that I bought into but it shouldn't cripple bluetooth. UMA is supposed to replace a home phone but I find myself running downstairs at a breakneck pace to make to my office for a call. I love my phone but I am not holstering to my underwear at night so I won't miss calls.
That is where the bluetooth phone from at&t comes in. You pair it to the base and you can have 12 headsets spread out through the house. You can make and receive calls through your cell phone. The problem is I wanted to get free calls through UMA to cut down from my minutes.
