    A few days ago I posted a question about the apparent unreliability of my
    old HBH-60 headset when used with my new ES K700i. Various encouraging
    responses forced me to accept that I might be mistaken and to persist with
    it.

    Now I have acquired a PCMCIA Bluetooth card for my laptop (a
    Motorola/Digianswer as it happens). It's not necessarily the card I'd have
    chosen given a free choice, but heck, Bluetooth is Bluetooth, right?

    Guess what? I can get a connection to the phone and surf and e-mail to my
    little heart's content--for anything between 2 minutes and an hour. Then
    the Bluetooth connection just fails for no obvious reason. This is exactly
    the same behaviour as with my HBH-60.

    I admit I am new to all this Bluetooth stuff (and it is turning out to be a
    *lot* less transparent than the hype implies), but it beggars belief that I
    could get two Bluetooth devices to work, but only well enough that
    they fail at random intervals. Surely they'd work right or not at all?

    So now we come to the point of all this: am I discovering the hard way that
    Bluetooth is inherently rather fragile; or do I have a flaky phone (the
    only common element), or is the K700i product-line flaky? (I'm having other
    problems with it besides the ones I've posted here.)

    Re: Bluetooth woes

    Try to get the latest software update for the K700i: I have read that this
    will solve many issues.
