Does the quality of connection change after having a phone call through Bluetooth?

I have a plantronics M100 and if I connect it, the connection repeatidly breaks until I make a phone call, afterwards connection becomes excellent.

That actually sounds unusual. Do you mean music sounds broken until a call is made? Because stereo audio and in call are two different Bluetooth profiles, and bluetooth is an evil tech so that may be related.

The M100 is only for calls. So I am talking about in call only. The connection that breaks is the standby connection when there is no call.

Then I perhaps do not understand, it should only establish the connection for an audio stream. Although, the icon should remain that lets you know there is still an active device.

Update on my first post:

HS3000 and HOX: since the 1.29 update I have had perfect playback - the only way I can cause signal loss is covering the HS3000 entirely with my hand.

Seems like the OP has an issue - looking at the way the antenna for BT is on the plastic body and cabled to the mainboard (from the disassembled pics on the forum) I'd imagine there is a short or loose contact...

Oh man, where were you an hour ago! I just was at the shop, sending back to HTC for repair or if they will give the shop a new unit, a refund. Painful option, amazing device. Just tired of the number of problems I have had with Android phones over the last year. Weighing my options. Would be totally happy with a WORKING One X for example!

Incredible we are having the same issues with similar equipment though. HTC said they suspect a broken connection (from my light handed use I wonder how) and as such the shop has sent it in.

I'll try to remember to update when I know more in some 2 weeks.

Small update; The One X came back with a new shell but same screen and internals. The repair centre apparently did a factory reset and other worthless activities on-top of that. Nothing was fixed, of course.

So it is right back with Saturn, for another 2 week attempt to solve the actual listed problems.

In the meantime I did a side by side test with a friends One X and as I thought, his works as mine did when I first had it. The problems seem to be very much on the main-board, radios, who knows. Everything else is identical.

HTC hire other companies to do repairs in Germany as do many others, unfortunately my experience is that many repair centres here are bloody worthless.

This time the phone came back "factory reset, all working".

I showed the guy at Saturn the problem with my headset, he agreed, it is broken. I've refused to accept it this time (save time).

Essentially the repair centre have totally ignored the written problems twice. If they attempt another hardware repair (seems like we need to sue them into it at this rate) I get my money back.

I'm not blaming HTC for faults in new hardware, but I think they should fire their German repair partners for sheer stunning incompetence.

If I get my money back, I will not try HTC again, and I am sorry to say it knowing the state of other brands - but this is how customers get upset.
