    Got my VZW 8130 today - I like it alot but i found a huge bug !

    Advertisement



    Hey guys

    I got my 8130 , I still my my 8830 just in case

    So far I like it alot. The Keyboard is going to take some getting used to but the the size and screen is great. The camera is great.. Voice Quality is awesome and way better than my 8830. Much quieter in a noisy environment than the 8830..

    I will write a full review in the next few days but this bug is killing me -

    When using bluetooth and the phone is in the holster and you voice dial, the dialer says it's calling and it simply drops the call and never dials it.

    Yes, you can receive calls with the answer button when its in the case but no dialing.We checked all settings and something is very wrong. If you slide it out of the case and use the voice dialer , it works great.

    Wow with all the VZW testing you think they would have caught this one.

    Thanks
    Craig

    I can't say i know what the problem is with your phone, I would re-pair the bluetooth a few times and restart the phone, and see what happens.

    Can't wait for your review!

    Interesting. Come Thursday when the stores have the phone we can try to pair a BT headset with the demo units and see if they do it also. Could be a bad device, could be a bad signal, or could be a bug in them all.

    Tried everything. It's a bug

    Spoke to my friends at VZW, they called the Rim VP's and told them.

    I bet this gets fixed fast

    Keep you posted.

    Review in the works.

    1st day with it.. Battery is decent, not as good as the 8830 but it's half the size..

    Thanks

    Hey guys, Sorry I have not posted pics.. Too busy with work.

    I got 3 hours and 20 mins until low batt warning and at 3:52 still was going..

    Wow, I had a great day with this phone.

    I think I got more talk time out of this today than my 8830.. How can this be with half the battery size ?

    Would you mind posting some pics of the improvements and giving us a quick review of what you think overall?

    The battery time will take a bit to really vamp up---you have to give it a few drains and charges...the longer you use it the better it will last!

    PICTURES MAN! LOL!

    Have you tried going to options and the phone option (where it says to answer or whatever in holster) to see if there is an option to make a call while in holster? That option might be shut off.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    The phone will default to NOT allow outgoing calls when locked, and the phone probably locks in the holster. This can be changed in security menu. Might be the problem.

    Go to Options, Security, General Settings, and change "Allow outgoing calls while locked" to Yes. Most (good) holsters will lock the device when you holster it.

    From what I have seen its and error with some of the Motorola BT headsets, but who dosn't have problems with those. I know there is a post out there about the exact headsets peeps been having problems with so I would search for that!!

    You can upgrade the OS and the issue is fixed...get the Bell, Sprint, or (most recent) Alltel release. Remove spaces below and add proper url heading...

    If you lock it with a password it will work, but ONLY if it is password protected. I had mine set to lock where you had to use the two keys to unlock it and it would not voice dial (via bluetooth headset), but today I put a password on it and it works!
