I know I'm bumping a really old thread here but are any of you guys using a BT8010 with an iphone? I am and it works find except for the caller id. If you have the person's name programmed into the headset's phone book, their name is supposed to show up when they call you. Is that function working for any of you guys? My display is basically blank when someone calls. I've tried deleting and re-pairing the device but still no luck. Anyone?
I can confirm that it definitely doesn't work with the 3G. I'm assuming it's due to the iphone's limited bluetooth stack but I'm not sure. For me it defeats the purpose of having a headset with caller id since I now have to take my phone out to see who's calling me before I decide to take the call.I am using it with the first gen iphone and can attest to the fact that it works. However, the caller ID feature does not work with the first gen iphone. Not sure if it does with the 3g one or not.
Not if the purpose is to keep your expensive phone put away and not risk dropping it just to see who it is and reject the call. Just think about it. It's the reason even early CID BT heasets (Jabra BT800 for example) had vibration and belt holsters.I never understand why you need a display on a headset. Doesn't that defeat the purpose?
