    Hello folks,

    I bought a bluetooth handsfree from ebay. It is a decent
    handsfree from a taiwanese company called collex
    (model BT-201). It works fine when the call is initiated
    by the handsfree (yes! voice dialing works fine).

    (Problem 1)Now what I noticed is my N-gage (and 3650) do not
    disconnect the connection after the call (the phone shows
    parenthesis around the bluetooth dot (.)) This drains the
    battery fast both on the phone as well as the handsfree.

    If I disconnect the handsfree from the phone menu...but
    leave the bluetooth on indicated by just the dot . on
    the phone), still voice dialing works fine.
    (Problem 2)But in-coming calls do not work. The call
    never gets transfered to the handsfree.

    Incoming calls only work when handfree is connected (.).

    Anyone else with similar experience?

    Thanks
    -ajay

    there is a difference between bluetooth on (showing the dot) and bluetooth
    active (.)

    you cannot transfer a call to the handsfree if the phone is not actually
    connected to the headset!!!

    I know that! I have written commercial bluetooth apps
    on seriese 60 phones...so I better know that much.

    Well, it gets connected when I press the call button on handsfree.
    (I never touch the phone....the phone starts showing (.) and
    handsfree icon) The call initiates also. But it activates the
    microphone and speaker of the phone.

    Compare this to the situation where you plug your wired-handfree
    to the phone when you get the ring.

    I think I am looking at two bugs:

    1. Battery drainage when there is NO active call (just connected).
    This could be a bug either in the phone or the handsfree. I
    am hoping to get a Nokia handsfree...will try with that to confirm.

    2. Connection/call transfer failure when connection is attempted
    during the incoming call ringing. This looks like phone bug.

    I found if the ringer is OFF, the bluetooth handfree can get the call when
    you connect
    on in-coming call ringing.
