    Jawbone 2 and Jawbone "Prime" (3)


    IDK if you, or anyone else can answer this question but here goes...
    I own both the Jawbone 2 and the "Prime" (jawbone 3). My "3" worked better than the 2, although both were very good, with my BB 8330. Now I have both paired to my Moto Droid (2.1) and only the 2 works with any regularity. The Prime is almost worthless. It will connect, but when I place a call 99% of the time the driod still acts like there is no BT headset connected and will only use the actual phone mic / speaker for the calls. Even when the BT indicator bar is not lit, I press it and the call will not link to the headset. The other 1 percent of the time, when I finally get the call to go through using the JB Prime, I comes on at the lowest possible volume setting and I have to "beep" it up with the headse buton or the in-call volume adjustment on the phone. Even consecutive calls will revert to the minimum volume seting. So my question is, "are there known issues with the Jawbone Prime" and should I try to RMA the headset or is there a "fix" that I can applt to either piece of equipmet? Hope to hear something soon...

    I agree. The BlueAnt Q1 is a great bluetooth earpiece. The fact it offers online firmware updates make it really nice.

    I don't have one but I'd suggest trying to reset it and see if it makes and difference. See if Jawbone support has any info as well.

    Anyone have the Motorola H17TXT? I have issues with putting things in my ear, so I like that this BT doesn't have those ear things.
    Thanks for any feedback!

    As far as headphones Im loving the Moto S305. I think the manual rates them at a distance of 30 feet. But I have went a good 50-75 feet from my phone and still had good audio, and that is through at least 2 walls. At home I leave my phone laying on my computer desk and walk around doing house work.

    Yes, i have it and motospeak works great.
    it comes with 3 no plug ear hooks and 2 no hook ear plugs. I replaced a working fine plantronics 925 so i could listen to MLB at bat all day at work and it reading text messages to you while driving is a nice touch.

    Awesome! Thanks for the review. I've been trying to find a good deal on it with no luck. Is that a vz exclusive?

    I've had 3 of these h17txt headsets in the last 3 weeks....

    Yes, they are very comfortable. I find most ear hooks too large, but this one is just right. The headset stays put very well.

    Sound quality on 2 of them was excellent. One was a bit buzzy.

    I don't text enought to really give MotoSpeak a good test. I have encountered a few bugs, like when I hang up from a call random songs from my Moto Droid start playing, and sometimes the software doesn't launch when I turn on the headset.

    So why 3 headsets in as many weeks? Well, I have 2 phones. Droid personal phone and Sprint (YUK!) Treo Pro (QUADRUPLE YUCK!!) for work. The headset worked great for the first couple calls when paired to the Droid. Later, after pairing with the Treo callers started complaining that I would fade away. They would hear the first couple words in a sentance but then I would sound like I was walking away from a speaker phone.

    It's doing this on both phones. I've tried resetting it to factory specs and repairing, resetting it and pairing to my husband's Moto Droid and I don't remember what all else. Same thing. I fade away and so does my husband when he tries using it. All three headsets have done this.

    Called Motorola. No help.

    My husband also has one he uses with his Droid with no problems. So don't know if this is a dual-pairing issue or just my luck....
