Blackberry 9900 incompatible with Blackberry HS-655+?

I am using a Blackberry 9900 Bold with 7.1. I have a Blackberry HS-655+ bluetooth headset.


The device and the headset are paired correctly and work together. The problem is that unless you have the phone right next to the headset, you get nothing but crackling and interference on calls. ANy further away than a few inches causes crackling and interference. Someone suggesting unchecking encryption in device properties but this has not helped. 


Blackberry handset with a Blackberry headset you would not have thought there would be a problem. Has anyone experienced a similiar issue and got a solution?

Re: Blackberry 9900 incompatible with Blackberry HS-655+?

I have not used that model in over 5 years


The HS 500, 300 and 700 work very well with OS 7 and most can be had for 30-40 dollars online.
