    Hi. I started this thread because I'm getting fed-up with my Treo 755p's problems switching between stereo Bluetooth and incoming Bluetooth phone calls.

    Then it occurred to me that I should ask other 755p users if they've had similar experiences. Long/short: If I'm streaming Bluetooth stereo audio and receive (and accept) a call, Bluetooth disconnects and I have to hold the phone to my ear.* It's more of a pain than one might think.

    So, have any of you had the same experiences?

    * - Bluetooth also randomly disengages when I'm streaming.

    EDIT: Kinoma is a potential suspect, so if you've had these problems please let me know if Kinoma was part of the equation. Thanks in-advance.

    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    SAG is an inrcedible workaround, but it does come at a price. BT stereo to phone call is only one of many problems I encounter EVERY time I use SAG. Quite inconsistent. Also, Kinoma is installed on my 755.

    I have a 755p and use SAG - with the exception of getting the connection of my Jabra BT8040 and SAG on the intital try, sometimes I have to hit the "OK" button 6 time in a row to get it to connect no matter what the error says, but once connected, it works almost 98% perfect most of the time.

    I can switch between these apps and/or phone without problem with these programs listed here; Sprint TV, Slinplayer, TCPMP, PocketTunes basic, RDM+, Versamail,and Kinoma Deluxe? - for me the most fragile app is Kinoma Deluxe - but only when I use SAG - Kinoma by itself and/or wired headphones work great!.

    What seemed to help me is prunning away apps that I have no use for so I can gain more system memory. It could be coincidence, but more memory seems to make my 755p snappier and work better. Almost as snappy as a soft(some say hard) reset with erase data chosen.

    I use to have about 29mb to 30mb free and was working pretty good for what I had loaded - I now have about 34.5mb free and all works better and snappier. Besides prunning, I used a utility called PowerRun 1.3.1 to help move my rarely used apps with their data to my external 4gb class 6 card - expensive but nice program - the app you moved to the card loads a little slower when both app and data are on the card in comparison to when the app only is on the card. But I rarely use these programs, so an extra 2 to 5secs of initial load time doesn't bother me that much, because after it is reloaded to memory from the card, the app fuctions as normal - I understand that apps like ZLauncher are better with more features for the same price - but it takes a larger memory footprint than I would like to have.

    You folks called it. I've been watching more lately and I've seen more resets on my phone after SAG usage than after anything else.

    For me and my Jabra BT8010 it works pretty well 90-95% of the time.

    My only gripe is that when you hit send audio to internal speaker the connection between the headset and phone are not restored. I have power hereo set to disconnected bluetooth if not connected to save batery power and if i dont receive a call so the headset auto connects then bluetooth is turned off.

    Fo rthe most part it works pretty well on my 755 with Jabra BT8010 combo. On a side note my wife has a Centro with a BT8040 and it works better on that combo. A little faster returning to music after call ended and quicker connection times.
