Like I said, it sounds easy but in the real world it does not work (at least not on my Droid). If that worked, I would not be on here telling people to keep the salesmen away from thier phones.
I bought my Droid the day they came out. The salespeople had just completed training and seemed pretty smart on the new product.
I returned to the store for a class 3 days later on how to use my Droid. I was having trouble getting my email to work on the Droid.
At the class 3 techs in the store plus two more techs by phone, one from HTC and one from Cox Communications (my ISP), spent almost 3 hours getting my email to work. By now, I had missed all the class training. They still could not get the Droid to voice dial from bluetooth and I went home.
A couple days later they called me to say that HTC had decided the Droid Eris did not have the capibility to voice dial via bluetooth. By now my Droid had started failing to connect with my gmail account so back to the store I went. They never did get that to work ever again. It will not recognize the password. They tried a new account but no worky. Not on my phone.
I limped by without these features until I test drove the Powerstroke. That is when the salesman wanted to show me the sync feature of the truck. It took him several tries and about 20 minutes but he got it to work. It was nice once he got it working. We only used it that one time in that truck. I would bet my phone will not link to that truck again if I could find the truck.
I bought a different truck so when they delivered it to me they wanted to set up the sync. This took over an hour and many tries but they got it going. I did not try to use it until the next day however. It would not link up without forcing it to manually. It is that way every time now. Since that sync, my bluetooth headset has never linked without forcing it either. If I want to use anything via bluetooth, I have to go in and manually force the connect.
I have talked to Verizon and they walk me thru the set up but my phone will not "remember" what we teach it and the next time I want to go with a bluetooth item I have to force the connect. They want me to bring it to the store but when I get time to do that I will be getting a different phone. I am full of this Droid crap.
I work with dirty/greasy hands a lot so I wear a bluetooth headset most of the time at work (or I did until the test drive). With my old phone I could answer and make calls without getting the phone out of my holster or even touching it. I take calls from all over the country from people needing my advice at work so the Droid has to go so I can get back to the headset.
Now, I figure if all those smart people at Verizon can't get my gmail to work and they can't seem to talk me thru a simple bluetooth pairing that will continue to work more than once, I must have a real POS device. Don't you think??
And why on earth would HTC build a phone that is "going to do everything" except voice dial via bluetooth??
Naw, you can spend all day typing your fixes for this POS but I'm still getting rid of it as soon as I can get the time to shop. There may be thousands of these Droids working in the field but mine does not, and many highly trained people can't seem to get it to either. I am sure thy will say my phone has issues and offer me a new Droid but since HCT admits the Droid Eris can't voice dial via bluetooth, I don't want another Droid. I never would have bought this POS if I had been told it was not capible.
Thanks for your help guys but my Droid's days are numbered!!
Just keep the Ford salemen away from your phones on test drives. A lot of my issues compounded when he synced me to the second truck.
