Need help with Motorola RAZR and HS850

I have a Motorola RAZR V3 phone and a HS850 headset. When I got the
headset, I paired them together, and everything worked fine. I'm having
problems now, though.

When I open the boom on the headset, it no longer connects
automatically to the phone. Instead, I have to go through the menus and
manually connect them together. I made a menu shortcut, but it's still
a pain.

I checked the headset profile on the phone and made sure it was set to
Access: Automatic. I set it to Access: Ask, and I get a dialog box
asking if I want to allow the headset to connect when I turn it on, but
even if I click "Grant," it doesn't work. I suspect that I'm not fast
enough. I even tried toggling this setting back and forth to see if it
would fix the issue.

I know Bluetooth is working on both devices because I can use the
headset if I manually connect the phone to the headset.

Finally, I deleted the device information from the RAZR and re-paired
the two together. It still doesn't automatically connect.

I'm out of ideas. Can anyone help?

Well, it took a little while, but Motorola tech support did send me a
reply. It's below. The funny thing is that I had already fixed the
problem. Simply powering off the phone, then powering it back on fixed
the Bluetooth issues I was experiencing. Weird that I'd have to reboot
a phone to fix it. But I should have known.

Anyway, Motorola's response is below:

is caused by incorrect settings, performing a Master Reset will correct
this issue. This operation will reset all features back to the factory
