Lots and lots of accidental Calls! Bad switch design!
on August 11, 2011
The entire outside of the unit is a big Answer/Disconnect Switch!! So almost every time you touch it, or it hits against something, it engages it! It's very difficult to handle this unit without hitting that switch constantly!! Very Annoying! And the least amount of pressure will activate it. So even if you toss it in your shirt pocket, or softly pick it up, it will go off, and of course if you manage a couple of quick clicks it dials your last call! And so too often when you get a call, and you're trying to get it on your ear, you're answering the call before you've had a chance to put it on!
I know some mentioned this problem, but given the good reviews by so many, I assumed it would not be a big deal. IT IS!! It's simply a flaw in the design! So unfortunately I had to return it.
It's also really hard to get it over your ear. I've had another set with a more solid ear loop and it was far easier to get it on. With this, I've had to practice it over and over and it's still not easy.
So unless you are one of those who will be having this on your ear all day long, I wouldn't recommend it at all.
Oh, and finally, the tune you hear when a call comes in, is Super Cheesy! And there doesn't seem to be another option for that!
After days of trying to get used to this unit, I dialed at least a dozen unintended calls. One of them very late at night!
