    Since Bluetooth is sketchy on the Hero, I figure it would be useful to have a list of peoples' experiences with different devices. If you have a Bluetooth device, please reply with it's manufacturer, name, the exact OS you are using, and how well it works. I'll try to keep this post updated.

    Stock 2.1:
    * Blueant Interphone (motorcycle helmet bluetooth) -- Works
    * Jawbone Icon -- Works for both voice and A2DP
    * Parrot CK3100 car kit -- Works for voice and enables voice dial
    * Plantronics Voyager Pro -- Works

    * 2010 Mazda 3 GT with Bose stereo system -- Works for voice but not A2DP
    * Blue Ant T1 -- Does not work properly

    Stock 1.5:
    * Blueparrott B250-XT -- Works
    * Foxl G-2 Bluetooth speaker -- Works


    Fresh 2.3.3:
    * Blue Ant T1 -- Does not work properly

    I use a Blueparrott B250-XT headset and a Foxl G-2 Bluetooth speaker for my listening pleasure,both work just fine on my Hero 1.5. Although I wish that I could voice dial.

    Fresh 2.3.3

    Blue Ant T1

    Terrible reception, and pairing has troubles. The hero spits out an authentication key expecting me to put in in the headset to match.

    The T1 works great with other phones, reception included.

    Should mention that stock 2.1 and cyanogen's ROMs do not work well either. I am thinking there is a incompatibility between the 2 devices.

    I have a 2010 Mazda 3 GT with Bose stereo system. BT Audio does not work with the 2.1 update. BT calling seems to work fine though.

    Works well with a Parrot CK3100 car kit. Plug & play wth a nice little control panel that shows battery, signal and who's calling. Bonus is that the Parrot does fully voice commands, so even though 2.1 doesn't, I can say "Phone, Dial, Wife, Cellular" while driving and have it make the call unattended.

    Thank you for the reply. I need to know which ROM you are using before your post is helpful.

    Voyager Pro works great, only issue is the ear buds seem to be either too big or too small for myself but thats always been the case.

    Stock 2.1 here, in a 2011 Kia Soul Plus.
    BT works great for calling. Only complaint I have is my contacts sync as Last name first...trying to sort out if it's a phone issue or car issue.

    Bluetooth worked fine in my car with my HTC Hero until the 2.1 update. Anyone know how to revert ?

    Unfortunately, I don't believe it is possible. If you updated to the 2.1 from Sprint...unless you were rooted and made a backup prior to updating.
