Hey, i have a Motorola 3g handset that supports bluetooth and i just bought a Bluetooth headset. It lasts up to 30 hours of talktime and uses a AAA bat... doesnt charge.

Anyway, my point is, if i have my phone in my pocket and talk with the bluetooth headset, the call gets choppy.... is this normal with bluetooth.... its almost like its going out of range!! Bits of speach get dropped and its quite annoying, not how i expected bluetooth to operate as they say it has a 10M range.

I use a Blueant X3 Micro with my Apache and the sound quality is great. Can get sound anywhere up to 15 metres. See if you can try a different headset with phone. That way you can find out if the problem lies with phone or headset.

I have heard some bad things about Motorola BT implementations.

Now for some stupid reason after about 1 min of talking, the bluetooth cuts off and says "weak signil".... this is when the fone is in my hand... tried changing bats, same thing!!

Hopefully DSE will take it back... otherwise there goes $100!!
