Dan, it's a distraction to talk on the phone while you're in the car - I hope you did your debugging while stopped.


So, Dan, how do you like the car otherwise?

Ed, I did all of this while parked in the driveway.

Phil, I like the car otherwise...

Yeah! It is distracting...

Statistically, almost as distracting as adjusting the radio. But... not quite as distracting as the radio.


I don't know if this will help, but looking at the Bluetooth specification it seems likely the errors you're getting are occurring pretty high up in the stack. So, it should be easy for the offending provider to patch their software and get everthing working.

Now, you say you've got a Treo. Who's your service provider? There's a class action suit against Verizon being put together by Kirtland Packard(warning bad Flash navigation ahead!) that alleges Bluetooth badged phones sold by Verizon have been intentionally crippled to force users to pay for additional data services. There have been some rumors of other providers also engaging in deceptive advertising practices with regards to incomplete Bluetooth compatibility.

Good luck!
