    Just curious...is bluetooth part of FW 1.31 or SW 1.15.
    The reason I ask is to determine whether I might expect any improvement in bluetooth/headset performance by going from 1.28 to 1.31 in my unlocked Cingular 650.
    Thanks for any insight.

    I do not understand the question. Isn't Bluetooth is part of both firmwares, 1.31 and 1.15?

    Cheers, Perry.

    Well...that's what I'm trying to find out.
    My assumption is that it resides mainly in one place. Either the 1.31 portion which I understand is the 'radio' portion. Or it's in 1.15 which I think is the 'pda' portion.

    I'm at the limit of my knowledge and hope someone who understands this can shed some light on the subject.

    Bluetooth is a function of the PalmOS section, not the phone. The 1.31 firmware has no effect on BT. The 1.15 update (which includes fw 1.31) does.

    I understand what you are saying but I'm not so sure if they are mutually exclusive.. a la bluetooth headset. There must be a link between the radio section and the bluetooth function to allow for this. I imagine that a firmware upgrade can have some effect on the performance of your BT headset. Will the super geeks out there please inform...

    The radio section has an audio output internal to the Treo, which is hooked up to bluetooth internally. This audio signal is routed to the SDIO too I believe, so cards can handle voice connections too.

    In any case, all the Bluteooth protocol, exchange library, headset logic, etc are PalmOS components, and are prc's within the palmos rom section. Check 'em out with FileZ or peek in a custom rom's ace-palmos.zip.
