Default Avail Bluetooth Issue

Anyone turned bluetooth on and had it slow the phone to a crawl? I turned on bt to use with my headset and tried to make a call. I hit contacts and hit call and almost 5 minutes later the dialer popped up and began the call. Processor usage is 75% bumping to 100%. Turning off bt doesnt stop the processor usage, i have to reboot, then things are normal until bt is turned on again. Any ideas?
Thanks,
Taylor

Are you rooted? Are you using a launcher other than the stock launcher?

I'm getting the same thing. The problem began for me after I rooted. So I reflashed to the stock FW and re-installed everything but the problem remains. I thought it may have been vlingo related so I uninstalled it, problem remains.

Please help!

I am NOT Rooted and leave Bluetooth on "All" the time.

Just turned it off & rebooted to see if there was any difference but there wasn't. Appears to be the same speed / fast.

Do you have the app. Android Assistant installed? Great App and free

I think this is a root issue. My bluetooth worked great until I rooted. Hasn't worked since. Terrible lag, instability, bluetooth breaks dialer and power-switch type apps.

any new info on this? I just purchased a BT headset, but I can't make any phone calls with it. Unless I wait about 5 minutes for the phone to actually dial. The whole phone basically slows to a crawl.

I'm running one.three right now. I read above that going back to stock won't help the issue, so I'm at a loss for what to do. I am rooted, as well.

I use bluetooth all the time no issues at all. Except pairing sometimes. But no speed issues.

I'm having similar issues. I have rooted my phone. What I noticed is that when I flash my ROM back to stock, I have no problems with my first bluetooth pairing. Once I start moving system applications around using Link2SD, then my bluetooth problems begin and remain. My phone slows to a crawl until I successfully disable bluetooth (which takes a long time) and reboot the phone.

I just found out I have this issue also. Instead of rebooting I just turn all the apps off. If you can't get to the ago menu use the test button beside the camera.

You think we will ever get a fix for this? You press the little reset button near the camera lens (back cover off). Are you running the stock ROM? I can't figure out what causes this issue, can't use my bluetooth headset anymore

I'm using the one.three Rom. I didn't think I'd ever go back to the stick Room do I didn't back it up. That & I didn't know how to at the time I done the switch. I had a TB of it but lost it when I done the switch.

I also noticed that SMS & contacts is slow while Blue Tooth is on & WiFi won't work until reboot.
