    So what is the Verdict on the Droid & Bluetooth?

    I'm hearing conflicting opinions on the function of the Droid & bluetooth headsets. Some say it works fine and some say it flat out sucks. I've been only sticking to using the speakerphone. Even when I'm in my car, I have it connected to my AUX port on the deck. But I'm possibly looking to get an actual bluetooth headset. Any thoughts?

    Bluetooth works fine....I use it everyday.

    Voice Dialing via Bluetooth Does Not Work.

    Bluetooth works fine, but voice dialing via bluetooth does not (as stated). Looking to do any bluetooth stereo audio? That works for me too. The control profile I'm not sure about.

    I'm using a Motorola H12 and haven't had any problems whatsoever. I can answer and terminate a call and it always syncs up right away. Of course, as everyone will point out, you can't initiate a call using Bluetooth but I've never successfully used the microphone voice dial either so I guess we all hope that the next update will correct both "issues."

    I also want to recommend the app called Car Dock Speakerphone which I found on the Market. It's small, just over 88KB, runs automatically, and is free. When my Droid is docked in my car (using the Motorola Car Mount Phone Holder for Droid) this app automatically turns the speakerphone ON. However, when I have the Bluetooth headset on, it does NOT turn the speakerphone on - perfection for me.

    The important point is that right now it isn't totally handsfree with a bluetooth headset because you have to handle the phone to initiate a call.

    I use a couple of different bluetooth headsets with it and also have a Motorola S505 in my car. The next, previous, and pause buttons on these devices do indeed control the music player on the Droid exactly the way they are supposed to.
