Plantronics BackBeat 903+ and Pearl 3G 9105

Hi to all.


After recently buying this excellent Bluetooth stereo headset and using it very successfully with several PC's and a Nokia 5800, I finally connected it (with no setup errors) to my 9105 (OS6, bundle 2532).


BTW, the headset is Bluetooth 2.1+EDR+eSCO compliant and the 9105 is v2.1 with A2DP.


Well, the working Bluetooth range between the 903+ and the 9105 is just awful! If I put the phone in my front trouser pocket I'll be having dropouts and if I put my hand over it it just dies. This behavior was noted with fully charged devices and also with the 9105 connected to the mains.


The headset is working perfectly, many other devices prove so. On the other hand, the only Bluetooth use I've been giving to the 9105 is file and contact sharing at close range, never anything fancy as a stereo headset.


Could this issue be a:


- Updatable incompatibility between the 9105 and the headset?


- A sign that my 9105's Bluetooth antenna is off-spec?



Thank you!
