    Okay, this is something I've never heard of before, but has happened on two different Erises.

    I can pair the phone easily with all my BT stuff. Problem is, when I use the music profile to play music over any Bluetooth hardware, the pitch goes up and down, and the music speeds up and slows down. Like an unstable record player. It's not completely frenetic; it just is barely fast and high when you start a track, and it slows down and lowers the pitch by maybe 3/4 step about ten seconds in, and randomly throughout the song. Makes music pretty much unlistenable.

    Anyone else run into this? I duplicated it in the Verizon store over their BT audio stuff, so they gave me another Eris. It does the same thing, and it's maddening. I have no idea how that works, since afaik, Bluetooth is completely digital transmission; bits out should be bits played. My car stereo is a Sony Xplod, I can get the model number if it's important (but it's not isolated to my deck), and the audio bug happens with Pandora and with the stock MP3 player. Any thoughts?

    I learned to not use blue tooth headphones with my droid eris, just plug the headphones into the top of your phone and use it that way instead. Not sure if there is a fix for your problem, but i don't those problems persist if you plug the headphones in directly.

    So do you run into the same or similar problem?

    Yes, the problem does not persist when I plug into the deck using an aux in. But that's not really . . . a fix :) I used BT audio constantly with my old phone, and would use it even more with the Eris, if it worked.

    Also, I forgot to include this up front, but a big thanks to this forum for the tips and tricks thread; it's been really helpful!

    I had this same issue until I upgraded to 2.1 root. With 2.1 root the fidelity is impressive.:)

    Excellent :) If the OTA 2.1 doesn't come through pretty soon after they put Incredible out, I will probably root it and find out, good to know!

    Good I thought I was going crazy! I play music and I have a very good ear for pitch and this was driving me bonkers! I hear it all the time, not just over BT. Even with headphones plugged directly in to the jack the songs pitch is all over the place. It even happens with streaming music. I dont know why there isnt a ton of people complaining...guess Im just picky :)

    I hope today's update fixes this issue.
