Well, the last threads about what the best earpiece is, are years ago.... and NOT about the Pre2 specifically.
So I wanted to bring it back as...
I've purchase several earpieces in the last few years, and since the update to 2.2.4, the one I had that worked perfectly, well, no longer does.
So I'm hoping that some of you will provide good feedback.
My present earpiece is the Jawbone Icon. when it works fine, it's great, but I have a LOT of trouble getting it to work with the Bluetooth every time. What I get is that it connects, but then, it acts as if not connected (doesn't route the audio to it), of getting the voice dialing is a flip of the coin, either it'll work, or activate but doesn't register any audio (the bar on the phone doesn't even move.
It's very very frustrating... I have to turn the BT off on the phone, turn the earpiece off and back on, and then I get a better chance at it working ok again.
My old one was the BlueAnt V1x which had built-in voice commands and worked perfectly, but since the update to 2.2.4, I can't even use this thing at all.
I've got 2-3 Samsung ones, and a few more but all are getting pretty old, the sound quality and such isn't the greatest and the BT connection does similar issues as the Jawbone.
I do have a Stereo headset (BT) (from the Source aka Radio Shack) and that works very well, but I simply can't be wearing a full size headset on my head like that.
Would it be a question of BT version of something... which I can't believe as the Jawbone Icon is a very new model, and if not for the BT hit and miss connection, it would be perfect.
So, survey wise, what earpieces do you use, any trouble, any recommendations?
