Bluetooth issues with Iphone 4 or IOS4
Has anyone else been having problems with Bluetooth with the IPhone 4? For the first time in years I have had to go to a wired headset because people are telling me that I sound robotic and/or crackly. I have tried 4 different headsets of which two of them I have used for a year on my 3GS. I am not sure what else I can try.

I too am having the same problem with the iPhone 4, while my high quality BT headset worked flawlessly with my 3G. Callers say I sound like I'm underwater, and they sound marginally worse to me. The reception seems worse as well. As a truck driver, both issues are quite serious. WTF Apple?!

I noticed it's a little better if I make or answer the call from the Bluetooth. If I transfer from wired or the phone to Bluetooth it is horrible.
Others are having this trouble too, there is a thread on the apple support website.
Interestingly, my expensive BoomO headset, a wired, high end noise canceling headset will NOT work with the iPhone 4. It sounds like there are windshield wipers on to the listener. The BoomO support said they know about it and they are coming out with an amplified cord for the boom. They said apple changed the circuitry on the headset jack. My old cheap Plantronics wired headset works great.
I hope they get this fixed soon! No Bluetooth is the pits.

Can you hear me now??? Bluetooth problems
Add me to the list.
- Voyager Pro worked great with 3GS. No one ever said a word about call quality in over a year of use.
- Same device (and 2 others) are not usable with iPhone 4
- Reset phone - no improvement
- Apple store gave me a replacement (no problem, very nice about it) but no improvement.
Also getting weird call quality in my home - and I have a AT&T microcell so signal strength is not an issue.
I'm pretty bummed as I run my life on the phone.

Bluetooth range on iPhone 4 REALLY SUCKS!
Another unfortunate update from my second iPhone 4.
IP4 bluetooth range was a noticeable problem the day I received my first phone...with 2 separate devices. Upgrading to 4.0.1 seemed to fix that on that phone. But I now have a replacement iP4 (due to antenna issues) and just yesterday tested my replacement iPhone 4 (with 4.0.1) and it's having the same POOR bluetooth range as my original iP4!
With the two different devices, range is approximately 50-60% of what I had before (3GS) and unusable for my workout routine.
Can someone shed some light on what may be going on?
I'm growing weary of all the iP4 problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bluetooth fix? Maybe!
Today I decided to do a "reset network" and after rebooting the BT range seems to be back to normal!
I reported this to Applecare such that hopefully their support forums and tech support reps can advise customers with such problems.
Cross your fingers!
