    Default Bluetooth earphones occasionally disconnecting

    I have my phone in my pants pocket, and sometimes, my bluetooth earphones (Jaybird X2) would just randomly disconnect. I would have to press the play button on the earphones to have it reconnect. Anyone else having this problem?

    Do you have a smartwatch - either Apple or Android Wear? I know that when my watch is also connected, BT seems to have a hard time handling multiple devices when one is BT headphones or in-car BT.

    Only BT issues I've had (used it with my Bose wireless earbuds, Sony BT speaker, and Sena moto headset) is that my microwave caused a lot of interference until I moved the phone right next to my speaker.

    Bluetooth on two separate 7 Plus iPhones is horrible. The phones will "pair" with the bluetooth device then immediately disconnect and will not reconnect. This happens on both phones with multiple Bluetooth accessories and car stereos.

    Lot of us having an issue. The only way to reconnect is to..

    1. Turn off BT and wait.. and turn on again and it should connect.
    2. Deleted the pairing and repair and it will reconnect

    I can't say how long either lasts. I did a 4+ hour drive yesterday with 6 stops. BT connected 4 out of the 6 times. I had to turn off BT and reconnect the other two times.
