can you guys report if the iOS4 update released Thursday addressed the problems with the Bluetooth connection/sound quality/voice clarity?? I haven't updated my iPhone 4 yet so I can't test for myself. But i'd like to know if the muffled voice issue has been resolved, thanks!

    it did not fix mine. I thought it did as it worked great last night but this morning I'm back to the same old muffled voice complaints.
    running a Motorola H17, btw.

    I have the Plantronics Voyager Pro that was dropping the bluetooth connection every 10 to 15 minutes, even though the phone was in my left chest pocket and Voyager on my left ear. I upgraded to 4.01 a couple of hours ago and so far the connection has not dropped.

    Nope. Still have issues. On my second iPhone 4. New phone worked great for about 5 days. Now back to same muffled problems and range down to less Than 2 feet. Really ***** holding my phone next to my head just to use my Bluetooth head set. Kinda defeats the purpose. Apple, do you really want to help customers? How about some help with this?

    I am still have the same problems with both of our iPhone 4's in our household. Our Plantronics Voyager Pro's have the same problem with incoming calls as did the replacements we bought and returned trying to fix the problem (Jabra Stone and Sound ID 510). I have been talking with Apple support and hoping for a fix.

    I've tried it on 2 new iPhone 4 (first one was replaced by apple for the proximity sensor and the BT). I have the same problem.

    I have tried 2 brand new Motorola H17, and the 2009 Jawbone Noise Assasin on both iPhone 4's that I've had. Same problem of muffled, can't understand, etc.

    I hear everyone fine, and I pair fine.

    Oddly enough, there have been times when people report that they hear me great. I thought I had solved by thinking it works only if you do not start (initiate or receive) the call from the BT and you turn it on and transfer over to BT after the call has connected, but, it worked good for a day, and then today it was back to the same "what?" "huh?" "get out of the tunnel" "are you holding your hand over the mic?"

    Nope. Neither did a replacement iPhone. It must be software or ? I hope they figure it out soon. ******* a lot of people off that's for sure including me.

    Didn't update yet because I've learned to wait these things out. I too have the muffled bluetooth issue with my Sony PS3 Bluetooth earset.
