HTC Droid Eris :: Using Phone With Car Bluetooth

Dec 22, 2009

I have a 09 mini cooper with built in blue tooth.It worked GREAT with my Motorola Razr3m but on my eris it is driving me crazy.The phone paired initially just fine. Address book was in sync and it sounded ok.But after a few days the phone would just unpair after driving down the road a bit.For no reason I can see and it would happen whether I was on the phone or not.Now it is getting worse.I called Verizon and we did a master reset. Today it disconnected twice on my way into work.I got it to reconnect once but now I can't get them to see each other at all.So is anyone else using their eris on a car blue tooth? Does it work? Is anyone using it with a Mini.I am trying to figure out if I should return the phone for a new one or just give up entirely. This is the MOST important feature I need in a phone and if it doesn't work it is useless.I like the eris but this is driving me nuts.

HTC Droid Eris :: Stereo Bluetooth Headset And Other Phone Sounds

Feb 22, 2010

1. Will a stereo Bluetooth headset work for listening to Pandora on the Eris? I ask because I saw one thread in which somebody said "No Bluetooth for anything other than telephone sound" on the Eris.

2. If it will work, any recommendations such a headset? I'm no audiophile, so my main issues would be comfort and battery life.

HTC Droid Eris :: Incoming Calls Freeze The Phone - Bluetooth Disconnects Often

Sep 12, 2010

Hi all, I've owned an HTC Eris since January and have been pleased overall until I upgraded to 2.1 a couple months ago. That's where the real issues became more rampant. I've stumped most of the kids at Verizon, have wiped the phone a couple times, and even was given a whole new phone once.

This post isn't intended to be some whiny rant because I really want to see if there are any resolutions aside from getting a different phone. This list is extensive and obviously I wouldn't be posting if I wasn't concerned. Any help/feedback is appreciated. Thank you!!!!!

1. Some incoming calls freeze the phone. It is any one caller, just random. Phone will just ring uncontrollably and the screen just goes black. It will continue doing this until you pull the battery. Sometimes a force close message appears but you can't clear it. No buttons work.

2. If send text, then happen to turn the phone will it's sending, it force closes. At least the text still sends, but it's just lame.

3. Laggy response and/or need to push a button several times to get it to respond. I don't have a screen cover.

4.The default action on some favorites resets. Many times when I select a favorite to call, the phone asks me which default action I want to set. Hello, that's why I chose a default action in the first place!

5. Can't play more than 2 songs in a row on either Pandora or Slacker without phone crashing and reseting to home screen.

6. Bluetooth disconnects often. Sometimes takes a while to re-connect.

7. If I get a text while browsing the internet, it freezes that page and displays a "server cannot connect" error. I can go back to previous page and stay connected to internet, so that' ok. But I cannot navigate back to the original page I was on without getting the same error message. I need to close the bowser, and re-open to get back to that page.

HTC Droid Eris :: Best In Car Bluetooth - Recomend

Jan 19, 2010

These are our first smart phones so if you could help us out with some issues.

1. Oregon in now hands free and we dont want to wear earpieces. Can someone recomend a good in car bluetooth for the eris? We have the Motorola FM transmiter bluetooth for universal use but it does not really work that well. My wife has not been able to use hers yet. I am reluctant to take mine out of the box if they are not very good ones.

2. I read that video quality is much better on youtube if you press the menu button when the video starts and select HD. This procedure has not worked. I dont get a prompt when pressing the menu button.

3. Is there any way to send a message from the landscape view with keyboard? It seams you have to back out to do this with the lower left hand icon.

4. When ending a call the phone reacts really slowly. I am used to pressing end and immediately being notified call has ended. With the eris, I press end and nothing happens for a second or two. So I figure I missed the button and repress it. This redials the person and it continues like this until I exersize some patients.

5. With the seven home screens, is there any way to select what you want displayed on a screen if it had a default widget there already? For instance, say I want to move the email widget from one to the left of home to two to the left of home. Also, while trying to add people or favorites to the first screen to the right of home the boarders on that widget disapeared. Now its just a background and people faces.

6. Peoples contact faces in thumbnail size are much blurier than when the camera shoots them.

7. Switching from screen to screen, backing up, etc. seems slow.
8. How do you pop up a browser to select "home" when online. When I go back online after viewing something it takes me to the last visited site as opposed to google home. Is there away to select home from any website? I really just need a browser bar.

I think thats it. Also, my phone battery is only awake for 13-20% of the time. I heard alot of reports saying people are around 50-70% awake? Did I get lucky or do I just not use it enough?

HTC Droid Eris :: Using Bluetooth For Pandora In Car

Dec 7, 2009

I did a search and it looks like some others had problems with this as well.I am new to the Droid world (tried Blackberry but hated it) and I really like the phone overall, minus a few software bugs. Anyway, my question is how do I set up the phone to play in the car?I have bluetooth on my car and it works for phone calls (it drops every now and then) but I can't get the audio to work.My bluetooth manual for my Volkswagon says the phone needs to be turned onto headset mode? How do I do this and are there any other suggestions to try?I also have a Aux hookup and an Ipod connection.However, I really wanted to use the bluetooth if possible.I haven't tried the Aux hook up yet either.

HTC Droid Eris :: Bluetooth Voice Dialer

Dec 1, 2009

I've searched the forums but haven't found a fix for this yet. I like to call people on my way home from work. I used to tap my bluetooth, have my phone in my purse and say 'Call Bob Mobile' and woosh - it calls Bob on his mobile. I've tried the voice dialer that came with the phone and it can't understand a work I say even when I'm holding it right next to me. It's driving me nuts. Are there any apps that will make my bluetooth call Bob when I tap it?

HTC Droid Eris :: Not Detecting Wifi - Bluetooth

Feb 15, 2010

My Eris is not detecting my home wireless network. I've reconfigured the network to try to solve this problem -- my laptop is working great on the Belkin N, but numerous attempts at adding a new wi-fi network to Eris have been unsuccessful. And Bluetooth isn't much better. I did get Eris to pair and connect with my headset, and I actually got it to pair with my laptop, but with the laptop, it says "paired but no connected", even when the laptop's reading indicate that there is a connection. I've checked and rechecked configuration, ensured that both PC and Eris were able to be discovered, scanned and re-scanned, but Eris still won't detect my network. My computer, though, does detect Eris as a wireless device.

After successfully pairing and then using an earbud, speaker, etc., the Eris will intermittently lose connectivity with the BT device. It's unpredictable, and the only remedy seems to be UNpair and then REpair.

HTC Droid Eris :: Bluetooth And Bump App Errors

Nov 26, 2009

I'm going to post this in the Motorola droid forum as well.I have searched all over and even read the user manual for my wife's droid eris. I have a Motorola droid and I cant send pictures to her or vice versa. When I try to pair the bluetooths,I get a dialogue box that asks for a PIN,so as it suggests, i tried 0000 and 1234.It says on my Moto droid, cant connect with Eris and on my eris it says, paired but not connected. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.I am merely trying to send pictures and media back and forth between the two phones.

Problem No. 2

We both have the BUMP application where yo can bump info between the two phones. Well as the instructions suggest,I open bump on both phones and bump them. When i do this, it says "Please Bump Again" and then at the bottom it says "you were the only person that bumped" ON BOTH PHONES it says this.What is the problem here? I cant find any help on this,even on their website.

HTC Droid Eris :: Changing Sense UI And Bluetooth Pairing

Aug 15, 2010

Ive been searching the net, droid forums, and spending ridiculous amounts of time at verizon stores and no one will give me a straight answer. Is there any way to either do something to the bluetooth or change the eris's sense ui so that it can pair with a wiimote, or are there any other bluetooth or USB keyboards or game controller that can for sure work with the eris?

Also, what is the best music player app? All I want is one that has an equalizer that works. Every time I hit the eq button on mixing it say that "the eq doesnt support this file type" and all my music is MP3 wtf. And does anyone know if theres any way that verizon will exchange a "broken" eris for an incredible?

HTC Droid Eris :: Bluetooth Syncing - Jawbone Prime

Jun 11, 2010

I just got a Jawbone Prime and it's absolutely amazing! However, after I charge it I have to restart my Eris to get it to connect. There isn't any problem if I move out of range and back. It connects right up. Is anyone else having this issue with a Jawbone? I'm not sure if it's a phone problem or a headset problem. I'm running leak v3 and haven't had this issue with the 2 other headsets I have.

HTC Droid Eris :: Bluetooth File Transfer Between Two Devices?

May 25, 2010

Bluetooth file transfer works with "paired but not connected" pairs between phones from 3D Gallery on one phone to the SD card on the other phone. But I can't seem to send anything else any other way. Has any Droid Eris owner got any of the bluetooth file manager programs to work between phones? If so please tell me the step by step procedure to effect a successful transfer?

HTC Droid Eris :: Bluetooth Pairing - Battery Is Almost Dead

Nov 10, 2009

I am new to this forum and just got my Eris today and yes the battery is almost dead. I paired the phone with my car today (a Prius) and it worked fine. However, for the life of me, I couldn't figure out how to unpair the BT. With my old phone, the BT would shut itself off after the car was off and I would walk a few yards away. I couldn't figure out how to shut it off. I have learned a lot from all of you over the last few days.

HTC Droid Eris :: Bluetooth Pairs But Unable To Connect

Jul 9, 2010

I tried searching, but was unsucessful in finding an answer. My Eris, and now the replacement Eris sent by Verizon, will not connect to our Panasonic KX-TH1212 home phone system. It worked fine before the upgrade to 2.1 and my wife's Droid still works fine with it.The Eris will pair with the KX-TH1212, but will not connect; I've tried it multiple times with both Eris phones.The KX-TH1212 requires a passcode (0000) to pair. After failing to connect, the Eris only provides one option (unpair) in the long press menu.The Droid has three options (connect, unpair, and don't remember this one).I would appreciate any help or similar experiences to fix this issue.

HTC Droid : Eris W/ 2.1 V2 Leak - Memory & Bluetooth Question

Apr 2, 2010

I upgraded from 1.5 to the "new" 2.1 far it's snappier, but I've noticed a couple anomolies. I'm hoping that someone here can enlighten me.If I do a fresh reboot then use Advanced Task Killer to kill all the apps that run on startup, I can usually get around 104 MB of free memory.But, for whatever reason, it always seems to trickle down to about 30 to 40 on any given day.I have to run ATK again just to get it back up to around 70 MB free.Is there a memory leak? Or is this caused by random apps running in the background eating memory?There are some, like MP3 Store, Market, and Voice Dialer that seem to run even after I kill them with ATK.Next question, and kind of an observation...I have a Kia Forte Koup with built in Bluetooth.The Eris syncs up just fine and I can voice dial. I've noticed that others have said that the Eris wouldn't let you voice-dial with Bluetooth, but mine does.It worked with 1.5, too. My question is whether there's a way to increase the volume further.when I had 1.5 I could easily hear calls over bluetooth, but 2.1 is much quieter. I've got the "Bluetooth In-Call Volume" maxed out, and my volume in my car is almost maxed, but it's still quieter than it used to be.Any ideas?

HTC Droid Eris : Bluetooth For Earpiece Doesn't Work

Dec 3, 2009

We have tried everything to get a bluetooth earpiece to work with the HTC Droid. The only thing that works is answering a call and the quality is questionable.

You cannot use voice dialing at all. Last call redial doesn't work. Nothing that we have come to take for granted on cell phones for years works. If a 3 year old Motorola flip can do it, it can't be that hard.

Anyone have any idea if this is going to get fixed in the next release? I didn't find it even described in the release for December 11th.

HTC Droid Eris :: Bluetooth Hands Free And Audio - Same Time

I havent been able to try this yet and i was just wondering if anyone else has. If you have the phone connected to a handsfree bluetooth system in a car and are also using the phone to play music via an aux input through the headphone jack will they both work? I am just wondering if the bluetooth connectivity will override the fact that you have something plugged into the headphone jack. I will be able to try this in a couple weeks when i get my car back, but wasjust curious if anyone else already has tried it.

I saw one screen shot in this forum of a very clean, minimalistic bar where green = on, red = off (or something like that) for each setting, but I can't remember which post had that screen shot. I've searched and searched. Anyone remember seeing this? Or what search term should I use in the market to find this sort of widget with multiple settings on it?
