    I just got the plantronics 320, and it is cool, but I hear alot of crackling while I talk.

    Is this because of the bluetooth device, or is there a problem with Treo 650's and the bluetooth?

    I've heard of people experiencing static with a BT headset if the phone was on the opposite side the body - does that fit your situation?

    It was on the other side of my body...but also, it says I can walk up to 30 feet away, but I went around a corner and was only like 5 feet away and I couldnt hear anything.

    Does it require a direct line of site, and do all bluetooth headsets require this?

    in my opinion, the technology just isn't there yet for static-free BT headset/phone pairing.

    it will be someday.

    but this headset isnt living up to any of its billings. I am supposed to be able to walk up to 30 feet away and have it work. Even with a direct line of site, it is more like 5 or 6 feet. I am just wondering if it is the headset or the treo?

    If it is the treo, I will live with it for another month or so until I change phones. If it is the headset, I want to know so I can return it and get a different model.

    try the HBH 662. it's supposedly the best sounding BT headset available for the Treo 650.

    My headset doesn't seem to mind (HBH-660), but I've heard many do. Palm recommends that you keep the phone on the same side of your body as the headset.

    I don't notice this with my Logitech Mobile Pro.

    Yeah, but I dont plan on having this treo 650 for very much longer. Too much phone for what I wanted it for. All I use is the calander. I am going to get either the LG VX 9800, 8100, or the Motorola e815.

    Have you tried the FW 1.51 upgrade? I'm seeing better range and clarity with my bluetooth headset after the upgrade.

    Do I need to take it into a store to get that? Currently, I have software v.1.01.

    Well, I was talking to someone at a VZW corp. store today and he said that the treo's are only in the 10-15 foot range for bluetooth. someone he works with has went through every headset in their store to find that out.

    just visit that web site. they have all the info you need, no matter which provider you use currently.

    i am with cingular and moved from 1.15 to 1.17 and noticed a great difference in the bluetooth pairing, use, and quality after that firmware upgrade.

    cheers!
