Default [Q] MW600 paired to Xperia Play

Hi,

I have a MW600 headset paired to my Play, everything works flawlessly, It is a pair made in heaven everything works... but I have 2 questions...

1. - Is there a way the MW600 display shows de contact name instead of the actual phone number when receiving a call? (I don't like to remember all the numbers on my small contact list...I'm too lazy)

2.- How can I tweak the voice dialing on the headset... It never get my commands rights... I know my english sucks, but not that bad...

Thanks

I have these headphones and am in the same boat as you, I haven't seen anyway to configure them.

For the lack of contact names (as well as song names) I read that it's a limitation with Android and not sending that over bluetooth.

Thanks,

meh, I mean headphones are OK and both headphones and mobile work great together anyway, let's hope an android update can help us with the track info / contact name display issue.

by the way how does your voice dialing works? mine really sucks... is that me (and my spanish accented english) or it just sucks?

Mine isn't too bad, The only problem I face is it disguinishing between two of the same named contacts, For example I have a John Smith and a John Anderson. Sometimes it selects the wrong person.

Like any voice control articulation and low background noise is key

For some reason, if you change the native language for voice (in the system settings) to US English (not UK english or other languages) and you are giving commands in english, you have a lot more accuracy of commands. Even if you are speaking with an accent. I don't know why that is, but it may have something to do with more work being done on the English voice control feedback and voice search profiles than others. (More US english speakers than other native languages on the voice search team, I think).

Is there anyway to have the phone in English language and the voice calling in Spanish???

I think that's why my phone do not understand my commands, I live in Mexico, and therefore all my contacts are Mexican Spanish pronunciated names and the system is looking for English sounding words right? It's that even possible???

It is quite good actually, I can go over 24 hrs without playing or 12 hrs with heavy use (3g, gps, casual gaming messaging and emailing and calling if course.)

About the battery on the headset is quite good actually on normal use, it can be affected on heavy use

Can you confirm that this the only way to listen radio FM on our Xperia Play?
