Excuse me if I didn't post this to the exact newsgroup for my ISP does not carry
'alt.cellular.bluetooth '.

I've been noticing a serious problem with the headset profiles on several/all Nokia mobile phones
for many years now.

But recently to my great disappointment,, this problem has also been apparent in some of the latest
sony-ericsson mobile phones like the 3G Z1010 and the S700i.
I just bought a Z1010.

Here's the problem, after a call has ended, the phone does not disconnect from the headset.
Pressing the button on the headset once also does not initiate a disconnection.

With the headset and phone maintaining a 'constant' connection with each other, this kills the
battery on the headset within a day (even if the headset is brand new). In other words, it's almost
as good as 'continuously talking' on the headset. The battery on the phone is not an issue.
Not only that, with the headset and phone being connected, one is unable to use other bluetooth
devices with the phone (e.g PDA internet surfing or SMS, PC sync/object push, phone->phone sharing
of files/pics with friends via bluetooth).

I'm using a Jabra 250 with my Sony-Ericsson Z1010. I'm having this problem and it's very irritating.
The problem also appears even if an ericsson headset is used with it.
I've never had this problem with my jabra/T39m, T68 & T610, Z600.

The only solution is to manually off and on the headset or to disconnect the headset via the phone
menu/s. On an average I receive like 30-50 calls a day. This can be very irritaing/unproductive to
do a manual disconnection after every call.

What's even more irritating is, some ericsson support staff insisted that this was 'feature' of the
phone. That you have to manually disconnect the headset/phone by using the procedure I described
above which I already knew a long time back. Great feature!
Ericsson has not released an updated firmware for the Z1010 yet. I hope that fixes the problem if it
is ever released.


But I'm even more surprised, I don't see this problem reported much/at all among users. Even with a
google groups search.

Is it because that most users have come to think that this is the 'norm' for headsets?

Dillon??

Don't know whether this will help, but....

I had a 6310i, and used along with a Jabra BT200. Was able to use the two
all day long, making and receiving NUMEROUS calls, and no real battery
drain. I merely charged the two at the end of the day, as a matter of
course.

Moved up to the 3650. Again, no problem.

Got a 6600. Nice phone BUT.... :-( By mid-day, the Jabra BT200 was
screaming out for food (needed recharging), and by mid afternoon the 6600
was running low on power rapidly. I found that I was only get about 30 mins
(top whack) use from the Jabra, before it needed "food"! :-)

Contacted Jabra, and they claimed (with an official statement) that the
power drain was "due to the Nokia 6600 not going into "sniff mode", the
channel is always active, and connected". This is NOT to say that the voice
line was open all the time. The calls would disconnect and initiate as they
should. It was the Bluetooth channel that was remaining open.

Moved up to the 6230 Nokia.

I receive NUMEROUS calls, and make a number of calls throughout the day.
With the BT200 and the N6230 connected, NEITHER of them are crying out to be
charged at the end of the day.

I merely charge the pair overnight, as a matter of course.

So, after boring everyone to bits!! Your problem "may" be due to your phone,
and BT keeping the "channel" open.

With regard to "when the headset is connected I cannot connect other devices
with Bluetooth". I think this is the "norm", in as much as only one
bluetooth connection open at a time (I have the same "problem" in not being
able to
connect my laptop/Palm whilst the headset is connected).

Hope this may help.

Cheers

I use a 6600, firmware version 5.27 and a Sony Ericsson HBH-660 headset. I
can use this headset for 3 days before I need to charge it again.
