Blueant X3 Bluetooth headset

I have used the X3 from Blueant with Telecom's Harrier, the Harrier had a problem with the headset as it would not click over straight away when a call came in even with the answer on 1 ring was selected, I would keep on trying to click and get the call transferred to the headset and it wouldn’t so had to answer the call from the Harrier and start the conversation, then next thing you know its been transferred to the headset almost a minute later. Calling out was so much easer with in 3 – 5 seconds I would hear the ringer tone in the headset.

 I have tried a lot of headsets from Dick Smith Power house with similar types of problems from:

  •  Not hearing the caller
  • Volume of the call to quite (even after volume turned up)
  • Not connecting the call

 Staff at DSE had put it down to non-compatibility due to them stocking Vodafone stock and the Harrier is Telecom (please not the headsets are supposed to be Universal) go figure.

 Now I have up-graded to the Apache what a Phone / PDA (I see the Harrier as PDA/ Phone) it is great size the keyboard is awesome. Now when I paired the headset with the Apache it was easy, when I had my first call with it, for the first time I actually heard the double beep from the headset in my, I clicked the answer button the headset and next thing I know… wow I ‘m connected straight away to the caller this was great instead of now just using the headset in the car I can use it all the time. When I made a call the headset switched over with in 1 second…

 Does any one else use this headset with either the Harrier or Apache with Telecom (or with Vodafone as it sold there also with PDA2K or Jas Jar)

 Well my first post is done hear from you all soon

 Cheers

 Jace

That is Bluetooth, which you correctly say is universal, not a CDMA or GSM specific technology.

I actually bough a Blueant X3 headset last week. Yes, that's right, I have had lots of Bluetooth headsets, but they seem to break, or the batteries go awol after a few months only. Let's see how this one performs.

I am using with a Jasjar though, since I use my Apache mainly for data only, and the Jasjar for voice (old mobile phone number, can't be bothered changing it now).

Have you used the headset with the iMate K_Jam as this is simialer to the Apache? Also have you paired it with more than one device?
