This will most likely be rolled up in the impending maintenance release that Audiovox has reported to us is coming soon (which will also fix the incoming beep issue many are reporting). Luckily, people with a lot of money, and free time on their hands over at pdaphonehome.com have come up with a fix for it:
Basically, the software in the Verizon version of the PPC-6600, the XV6600 is newer than what shipped with the PPC-6601. Thanks to the distributed nature of Windows, the driver files from the XV6600 for Bluetooth can be identified, version numbers checked, and installed in the PPC-6601.
Here’s what you do:
1) Turn off Bluetooth on the device
2) Soft Reset
3) Start up and ActiveSync the device, leave it connected to the PC
4) Backup all files using the Backup program
5) Download and extract the file xv6600woc_bluetooth.zip to a temporary directory
6) Copy all the files in that folder to the Windows directory on the PPC-6601 (click yes to confirm the overwriting)
7) Soft Reset Again
This fix should deliver increased headset compatibility, and fix some problems with tethering a connection over Bluetooth. Specifically, this replaces the PPC-6601’s Bluetooth driver build 2200 with the XV6600WOC (without camera)’s build 2400.
(Yes, the Phones Section will be updated next week to add all the new phones, so no more asking…)
