I went to the Verizon store today and we tried EVERY phone in the store and none worked (yes my headset is good). A Zerizon technician said they told the phone manufacturers not to enable the ring thru the headset in order to prevent someone from getting hearing damage on a loud ring. But my wife's 2 year old Blackberry works.
Anyone else have this issue? I did some archive searching and found others having the problem but I wonder if other Verizon specific customers are dealing with it. I don't like to talk on the phone when riding but I have it hooked up just in case my wife needs to reach me. BTW, all the setting are correct on the phone so I know that's not the issue.
I have a Verizon LG VX8300 phone, an Autocom, a Zumo GPS with Sat Radio and MP3, and a passenger with headset. Everything works fine except the cell phone must be wired to the Autocom to be able to send and receive calls.
If I connect the cell phone via bluetooth, I can receive calls and dial calls via the zumo, but I cannot speak in the mic and have the receiver hear me. The only way I can make calls and speak is if the cell is wired to the Autocom.
If you go on the www.Autocomamerica.com
website, somewhere under support and downloads are 5 pages of explanation about the new cable they made that doesn't necessarly work so well. I chose not to go that route because it requires you to send the autocom to them for a quick fix.
You can also go on this forum http://zumoforums.com/zumo
and get lots of good info. The site is about zumo gps, but there is a lot of autocom talk there.
I forgot to mention that I leave the cell phone on AUTOanswer. When someone calls, my autocom mutes the music and the caller says hello. Then i speak.
