Just got a warranty replacement phone. Previously, my Plantonics Explorer 395 earpiece worked perfectly with my Motorola Droid X. Now, with the new phone I have to go into settings/wireless & networks/Bluetooth settings/ each time and manually reconnect (it says "paired but not connected). This is NOT ACCEPTABLE!

While waiting for a response I called support. After going through various diagnostics over the phone the Verizon tech decided to replace my phone. The second replacement phone acts just the same, so it must be a software issue. This is what happens:
I have to go through the above sequence each time to connect my earpiece. It worked flawlessly with my old phone.
Please fix your software release!
