    Bluetooth has been around a while, hasn't it? Anyone knows when we should expect this phone to have a Bluetooth that actually works?

    What do you mean by "actually works" ?

    Mine works with headset and for PAN tethering.

    Euhm.. could you be more specific?

    Since a lot of people around here (me included) have everything working using bluetooth.

    First of all, we're missing BT file transfer.
    Second, PAN is Europe only.

    I do wish Palm would maintain the same version of OS around the world. The carrier specific apps should be treated as a separate add-on package. Not just for functionality, but also, I bet there's people here in the US who wants to use their device in Germen or any other language that's not English/Spanish.

    all thanks to the iphone, now nobody gives bluetooth file transfer
    what was considered a norm in europe is being removed for some reason

    That would be great if Palm did not want to sell any phones. I bet Palm wishes they could as well.

    Its all up to the carriers these days. Without pleasing the carriers you sell nothing.

    Lucky you then! How did you make it work?!?

    My PALM Treo650 had a brilliant bluetooth, could do anything, transfer files and so on, with the Palm Pre it doesn't even connect to my d^mn PC at home...

    Well.. I use it for these weird bluetooth things , like bluetooth headsets, tethering and such boring things. Which it does very well for me.

    As for file transfers: openssh (sftp) over my wifi connection. Never considered bluetooth for that one.

    .
    For file transfer, dropbear + scp, or browse using sftp on a virtual file system. Obviously, both have to be online via wifi.

    The main bluetooth issue I have is sound quality over A2DP and Handsfree. Not sure which is at fault though, the car's head unit or the phone. Anybody else having problems with distortion/static at the high end over A2DP?

    I see what you mean. Different set of requirements.

    I thought I read somewhere, people are working on getting a better bluetooth stack or something. There are people with the same ideas. If palm dosent want to do it themselves, someone out here will.

    It should be called the palm patience! But the fact that people are able to is one reason I love my pre. I used 6gigs last month tethering. Sucks having a cable...

    winscp portable on the usb drive on the pre. Every one has microusb cable..so I can get and send files while at a friends house
