I have the Plantronics VOYAGER LEGEND and am planning to get an iPhone 5 this week. What Firmware version are you running on the earset? 44? Thx! Lara

Hi Lara - Yes..I updated to firmware version 44. I am also experiencing intermittent complete disconnects from the iphone. If I walk out of range and then come back into range of the iphone, the headset will not re-pair unless I turn the bluetooth off, and then back on. It is very frustrating! From all of the posts I read on Apple, it appears that the issue is with the bluetooth in the iPhone 5 and not the headset because other headset brands (I saw Motorola) are having issues too.

Got thee iPhone 5 yesterday. All is well. No intermitent disconnects.
Had a difficult time getting out of range; the iPhone 5 has a very far bluetooth range apparently! I walked almost one city block and was still connected. I had to go into the building stairwell which has lots of FiOS equipment which seems to block all signals. Then it disconnected, as expected.
Coming back, it automatically connected again. Pressing the call button makes it happen even sooner.

That is great. Perhaps it is the brand I am using. What brand and model Bluetooth headset were you using? I am having difficulties with the audio clarity using the Plantronics Voyager Legend. People hear me just fine, but I have trouble hearing them through the headset. The quality is poor - static and distorted voice coming through.

Me: Plantronics Voyager Legend, Firmware Version 44. Fine sound quality. I just wish a little louder.
