1) install this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mediafix&hl=en
2) open app, check the BT connection that have stuttering / dropouts
3) restart phone
4) wait for message box to appear momentarily to say "BT XXX reconnected" or something to that effect
5) test it out and....???profit!
update: perhaps I spoke too soon. A week of using the app this BT connection dropouts still appears at random. Rebooting the phone is what usually fixes it. I wonder if the bluetooth stack would fix it...can it be replaced in the phone kernel?
