I switched from my trusty Pre 2 (previous owner of a Pre+ as well) to an iPhone 5 last fall, and since then I've been trying to find a good use for my beloved phone. Recently, I picked up a bluetooth stereo for my office, and I figured that would be perfect -- I could use the Pre 2 to stream Pandora and local radio stations. Unfortunately, though, my plan is failing. I only sit only about five feet from the stereo, but the bluetooth signal starts to break up the minute I sit down and put the phone on the desk in front of me. It works okay if I put the phone on top of the stereo, but the point of all of this is to be able to use the phone sort of like a remote control for the stereo.
Do any of you know a good way to increase the bluetooth range? Is the range on the bluetooth on these phones really just that bad? I never used it much when the Pre 2 was my everyday phone.
