    The problem is that when I get a call on my integrated car Bluetooth and I try to accept the call with the phone itself the Bluetooth disconnect instantly. If I turn Bluetooth off and back on it'll connect. Or I can accept call with the integrated button on the headliner and it'll operate fine. It is just dificult to look at the caller id, set phone down, then accept the call with the button on headliner. Anyone else have this problem?

    How do you accept calls? With telephone or some other way?

    I always like to see who is on the phone prior to answering so it is a bit cumbersome but I guess I'll have to deal. Worked flawlessly on my centro :(

    When I updated my Hero to 2.1 I lost the ability to use Bluetooth in my Infiniti (as did others). I could pair the phone, but not use it handsfree - it would lose the connection as soon as I started speaking. I was nervous about the Evo, but so far it works as it should.

    i wonder if the hokey handsfree setup in my 09 sonata is to blame. it is an OEM item but it is definately an after thought in the car. It sucks that it worked so well w/ my Centro, otherwise I wouldn't know what I was missing :), Next problem is that I need to turn the phone on to hang it up which kind of sucks. When it is against my ear the screen comes back on on its own, not so when you have it sitting in the center console during a call. You have to hit the power button then slide the lock key down, then hang up the call. What a pita!!

    i noticed that with the evo i have to answer the call on the headunit or earpiece or the phone routes call to phone. try hitting menu then bluetooth on to see if it routes to stereo. thats what i do and it works

    yah I'm having this same problem too
    HTC Desire (Telus) 2.1
    if you (look at caller id) then press phone you get it on the phone
    if you press the pickup on bluetooth then it is on bluetooth...
    not sure if there are way to change this.

    It is plausible that by accepting the call via the phone you are overriding bt.

    I have the same problem with my phone too.

    I had the BB 8350i paired with my Alpine headunit and it always picked up calls and made calls using the car audio. But with the Evo i can make calls using car audio no problem but as soon as a call comes in using ether the Answer button on my headunit or the phone, the phone picks up the call and goes to headset. I have to hit Menu then BT on so i can transfer the call to the car audio. Not sure if this is an issue with Alpine or Evo. But i can see my phonebook on my headunit which is awesome.
