    Long story short...
    New to forums and such so I hope I am posting in right place. I am 39, still learning this technology and I drive a loud dump truck for 11 hours a day 6 days a week. I had original droid but now have the BIONIC. I need a Bluetooth headset/earpeice that works, that I can hear over the truck and that keeps me hands free and off the phone itself.
    I spent big money and tried the Motorola elite silver from Verizon... junk! no one could hear me!
    I tried a cheap Just Wireless BT-38 from Target... worked great and it used the free app my moto speak (which on a side not I hate cause it sounds like a cheap copmputer voice from the late 80's) However the earpice was too damn uncomfprtable.
    Took both bluetooths back and the got the BLUEANT Q2. I love it. It is loud, fits well and I can hear you and everyone can hear me clear... HOWEVER, THE VOICE COMANDS DOES NOt WORK!!!???!!!!
    When I hit the button on headset it says loading voice commands then says not compatable with phone!!!! Are you kidding me??!! 300 bucks for Bionic and 100 bucks for Q2 (both state of the art and fairly new) and still I can't win. Please help me. I read on some threads that Q2 works with Bionic and on other threads it does not.
    Yes both pair to each other and calls are clear but voice comands to activate make call or text with voice does not for me :(

    Sorry to hear about your problems. My 2005 car has built-in BT and the Bionic pairs with it quite well (as well as the other BT phones I've owned). Your title says you have to be a hands free truck driver. If that's the main place you're using it, I suggest trying ones designs to sit in cars, rather than your ear. Just a suggestion.

    Using the Motorola "Command One". Picked it up w/the Bionic. Lots of fitting options to your ear so should be comfortable and block out other sounds. Does work with voice commands, hence it's name.

    Did you install the blue ant app. I had trouble with mine on a droid 1 until I installed the blue ant app

    One thought...did you install MotoSpeak yet? That may let your existing BT earpiece work the way you want. I had to do that with the Command One.

    Settings ....location and settings ....make sure
    Bluetooth bypass is on. Then go to settings....voice and input settings...play around with the settings for voice commands.

    Remove other apps that are not for your current headset.

    I use pro voyagers ...amazing.

    If none of the above work..under bluetooth settings.. when you see your headset show up hold it down and a menu should pop up with options ..see if anything in there worksm

    I have the q2 also with my bionic. For some reason I still can't get the voice commands to work. Oh well... it is what it is.

    I'm a trucker and I use the blue parrot road warrior headset. Works great and works with voice command. Can get it online or at a Love's.

    BlueParrott B250-xt is the only Bluetooth I have found to hold up to vocational driving. I'm a fuel hauler, our trucks are almost as loud as your dump. Excellent speaker volume, noise cancelling is second to none. I can have the window open, CB and radio on, and the conversation is clear both ways. 2 cool things about the B250: the battery is replaceable AND the headset works while it is charging! Not like you will need that much, I charge mine once a week. Look on Amazon, I picked mine up for around $50, but the last 4 guys at work to get them paid closer to $80.
