    Hi all. I have had my Incredible 2 for about 2 weeks now and I am liking it a lot (although I can't seem to get it to take very good pics even though reviews of camera are pretty good).

    I am looking to get a hands free bluetooth speaker hookup for my car. Motorokr T505 seems to get good reviews but it only apparently says the phone number when you get a call rather than the name of the caller (assuming they're in your contact list). Read about the BlueAnt Supertooth 3 which does not transmit over FM but does supposedly speak the caller's name. Then read about the BlueAnt S4 (latest model) which sounds absolutely wonderful but I can't find any forum threads from people using it (or the others for that matter).

    Can I get you folks to chime in on this subject and let me know what you use and how well it works, particularly with the Incredible 2 if possible. I don't want to waste my money. Price is not an object if it does what it's supposed to do.

    Let me hear from you. Motorokr T505, BlueAnt S3, BlueAnt S4, something else?

    Thanks ........ Rob

    Don't get the Motorola Roadster. Looks great on paper but doesn't work as advertised. At least with the Optimus V. The voice commands work about 1/3 of the time. Whenever I use voice commands to call someone, it usually dials the wrong person not even close to the name I spoke. The messaging app (MotoSpeak) that is supposed to let you answer texts via voice has never worked.

    Don't overlook Googling for reviews. I personally prefer reviews from long term users over the "professional" reviews where the reviewers spend a whopping 10 minutes with the product. However any info can helpful in my experience when shopping. With Bluetooth it does help to find reviews and feedback from people with the same model of device as yours. Bluetooth should be Bluetooth but sometimes the paired device can make a difference.

    This is just personal preference but I've always found Motorola's Bluetooth products to be overpriced for their performance.
