Default Short Review of my Bluetooth Headset Jabra BT 250v

Two weeks ago, I got my new (and first) bt headset.
I bought it on ebay for 30 EUR.
It came without the original box or any instruction manuals,
but that's Ok since you can get the manual on jabra.com

I like its design,
its pretty light and I can wear it for a long time,
without the headset bothering me.
It's much bigger than other headsets,
but in exchange it comes with 300 hours of standby
(smaller headsets often only have like 70-100 hours)

I don't like the design of the charger,
because it's kinda bulky and you can only charge
the headset with the original charger.
(But again, you don't even need to take it with you on a weekend trip)

The headset comes with the normal functions of every bt headset.
Using the 3 buttons, you can:
-accept incoming calls
-dismiss incoming calls
-turn the volume up/down
-activate voice dialing (I never tested this function)
-call last used number

The last function activated ifselt 2-3 times while carrying
the headset in my jeans - thats pretty annoying.

A very decent blue led shows the headset status(off,on, on a call) and batterd status (normal, low, very low).

The best function of the headset is the vibrate function.
This is also why I bought it, because the Ameo lacks this (imho really important) function.
Inside your jeans, the vibrating headset fells like any mobile phone.
Wearing it behind your ear, it feels kinda strange the first times, but you get used to it.
But note: you cannot turn off this function!

The phone quality is okay,
not better than with other bt headsets I've tried.
Your partner sounds a bit distant, but you can understand him flawlessly.
The problem that you partner claims of not being able to understand you
isn't solved by this headset, though.
Please don't understand me wrong.
Using the headset he can understand you without problems most of the time.
But the problem some users have with their Ameo (bad speech quality)
isn't fixed by this headset.

The battery is pretty good,
I've only charged it twice now.
The only problem I still have, is that the battery of my Ameo
is empty within one day (without using the device at all),
when having bluetooth turned on all the time.

All in all, I would definitely buy it again,
because it's a must have accessory,
if you use the Ameo as your primary phone.

Thanks for the review! I'm sure this will help someone out there. It's great to have users like you in the forum!!!

sin embargo he encendido el telefono y ponia 100% de batería, alguna solución?
no quiero desintarlar esta rom por esa tontería...

gracias!
Mee parece quite hay una opción para eso en Ajustes, ajustes del teléfono, led de carga...

Nota para el GPS, aseguraos de probar el GPS con una rom stock, o un mod antes de flashear CM o SuperOSR, y así minimizar probabilidades de que no os funcione.

«It seems the only way to get GPS working is first get a fix using a stock rom.»

Muchos reportan que así les funciona bien. A mi me ha funcionado siempre. A ver si cuelgo un pantallazo ;).
