    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, 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.

    I use the Plantronics Voyager 510 and it works great with the Droid. I haven't had any problems with connections nor reception.

    I just bought the Plantronics Discovery 975 and it is friking awesome. Has Multi-point connection capability and I can connect bluetooth to my personal (Droid) and Work (BB Curve) at the same time. Answer whatever phone rings. Still does not work for BT dialing on the Droid, but overall I am loving it!!!

    Original Jawbone. Works beautifully. One thing that struck me immediately is how quickly I am connected to an incoming call when I answer the phone. On my HTC Touch Pro there was a 2-3 second delay after answering before you were able to hear or speak to the caller.

    I have the Jawbone Prime (or Jawbone III). I love it even more than my original Jawbone. Droid has no problem with it.

    I use a moto h680 bt headset it works great but I am looking at getting the motorola HX1 endeavor with true bone coduction tech if anyone has one of these I would love to hear a personal opinion. I've read almost all there is to read from moto concerning droid pros and cons motos response to the lack of voice dial via bluetooth is "motorola is aware of the blutooth voice dial issue with the droid and we are doing everything we can to correct the issue" so I don't know when but I believe it will be fixed soon

    Same here, daily use with 2- (jambra 8020 and jawbone 2) and 1-stereo headphone (samsung from VZW site) it's all good.
