Default Call Waiting Kills Bluetooth

Ive been having a problem when I am on a call using my bluetooth headset.
If I get a call waiting coming in, it will take me call off of bluetooth and suddenly audio switches to the handset.
The headset icon on the dialer is still lit as if its connected, but the audio is not through the headset.
I then need to uncheck the headset icon and then reclick it, which gets the bluetooth audo working again.
Obviously not ideal, especially when Im driving.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Which ROM and kernel are you using?
Phone: Bell Galaxy S4 i337M [Locked, Rooted]
ROM: GOLDENEYE27 XXUFNC5
Kernel: Adam
Modem: NC1

Phone: T-Mobile Galaxy S3 T999 [Unlocked, Rooted]
ROM: CyanogenMod 10.0.0
Kernel: Stock CM
Modem: MD5


Some advice: if you're on the old i337M bootloader (pre-4.3), STAY THERE. DO NOT UPDATE THE BOOTLOADER.
On a Touchwiz ROM and hate Samsung's Settings app layout? Wanna have it in list format like on AOSP? Check out this simple tweak.

Yes. It used to work fine.

Then a couple of months ago this started...I will be speaking with bluetooth headset not problem, a second call will come in and the call waiting will automatically disconnect the bluetooth.

Interestingly, the headset button on the dialer is still lighted, but no audio through the headset. I then need to click the button off and on again, and it resumes.

One thing you could try is unpair and re-pair the headset in bluetooth settings. And if this still occurs, you can always do a factory reset (painful though).
