However, on the 700p, I accidentally pressed a key on the dialpad during a call with that problem and found that the static went away instantly! Very clear call at that point. Tried it another time on another call with static and had the same result.

    Seems like I don't have to do this all the time, so maybe it's only needed the first time after a reset....

    Couldn't find any reference to this anywhere else, just thought I'd share that with you folks. If there's another thread on this that someone could point out I'll read some more over there.

    I posted this in June '06 and have been using the above high tech solution ever since. It works every time. POS effin phone!

    Yes I get the same problem too.
    When BT has no "mic" voice, I disable it and switch back to phone "mic", but still no "mic", even speakphone mode, still no voice. Have to disconnect the call to get back voice.

    Also the call waiting is not working sometimes. The "Flashed" party has no sound.

    So does the other party hear you pressed a "touch tone key" on them?

    Why the heck does a treo 700p use BT 1.2???? It makes no sense.. BT 2.0 has been around since 04..
    Hey - just because the 2.0 standard was out for a couple years before the 700p was released doesn't mean Palm would find it necessary to include it.

    If the business press didn't finally pick up on our howls here, you can bet Palm would still be filling them with the ancient 32MB (16-20MB effective) chips of "RAM" in the Treos, and telling anyone who complained to "stick it." You gotta understand their position though - when people are only paying about $650.00 for a cell phone, one must cut corners SOMEWHERE...

    Just about every problem or massive shortcoming I can think of with Palm's PDAs or Treos can be traced to Palm trying to save a few cents to a few bucks per unit, and/or ignoring the obvious. Examples:

    -Piezo speakers
    -lack of reset holes that fit styluses
    -Screws spontaneously falling out on the Tungsten "T(x)" units
    -Tungsten cell phone had no internal microphone (!)
    -Lifedrive lag time
    -Treo 650 "RAM" < Treo 600 RAM
    -Treo reset hole unreachable w/o massive 2-handing
    -Current PDAs without vibrate feature (!)
    -BT 1.2 instead of BT 2.0 implementation
    -...on and on.

    I've said it before, Palm is destroying itself by aiming to release the cheapest-spec'd devices rather than some of the *best* specs. Apparently their faulty Treo return rates are not making the carriers happy, and us Treo users are constantly dealing with and trying to work around issues with their devices that should have been completely unacceptable to release by any company that gave a darn about their future reputation.

    10 months and counting without any sort of firmware update for all the problems with the 700p, and now the buzz-o-sphere is full of talk about the 755p coming on board and EOL'ing the 700p. And if Palm can get away with it, they will probably shove BT 1.2 into the 755 too... and tell us to 'like it.' After all... if you want a PalmOS "smartphone".... where ya' gonna go?
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.
