    Bluetooth Issue with Droid Razr Maxx

    SylentNite

      I have had my Razr Maxx for about 3 weeks. From the jump I have had problems playing music thru several bluetooth devices. It will play fine for a few minutes, then music will start stuttering(dropping in and out) and continue to do so. Music plays fine when playing thru the phone speaker or wired headphones, but fails when using bluetooth.  I called in, and they sent me another phone, and the same problem is occurring with the new one. I'm figuring its a software issue, bc I had no problems with my Droid X. Is anyone else having this problem?? I probably listen to music just as much as I talk on the phone and this is def. frustrating.

          If you are trying to play music, make sure your devices support the A2DP profile.

           

          Having said that, I have noticed that when Bluetooth and wifi are both enabled, sometimes there is the stuttering you describe.  I haven't had it lately (maybe after the update?) but if I turned off wifi it went away.

            I read about the wi-fi possibly causing problems and have tried turning it off to see if it helps, but it doesn't. I'm experiencing the problems with 3 vehicle radios and a pair of motorola BT headphones...it also doesn't matter if its the stock music player or a different one.

              hmmm.  That's what I would do too.  Have you tried Safe Mode to see if it does it then?  If so, then I guess I'd call Verizon.  They're probably going to want to try a reset though so I'd back up my data first.

                Hi Everyone

                I posted a fix to this on another site. It works as a patch only - The higher ups still need to fix the real issue when the next update rolls out, but here goes

                 

                Hi guys. I had posted something to this in the D*&^%4 forum. My Droid X was great with playing bluetooth music to my Clarion head unit in my truck. Fast forward to my Razr MAXX and nothing but constant skipping. It's the Data Connection in 3G arenas. In a 4G area you get flawless audio with no problems. In 3G areas, the skipping was so annoying that i almost took my phone back. What i did was open Smart Actions : Add a new Rule (the + sign in the upper right corner) : Start from Scratch : Triggers - BLuetooth Device (in my case it is a CX501) : ACTIONS - Cellular Data DISABLE. This will stop your 3G skipping and still let you receive Calls, send calls, receive text message and send text messages.

                 

                The only problem with doing this BANDAID patch is that you cannot use any celular data transfer so if you were listening to music thru your head unit in you car, you wouldn't be able to use the Navigation or maps. For me this isnt a deal breaker because i stream bluetooth while driving 1/2 hour to work. I don't need to use navigation and really shouldn't be surfing the internet while driving to work . Like i stated before, this is only a temp fix and needs to be addressed with the next ICS rollout.

                      Let me know if this works for you guys as well. I am currently RAZRless due to the fact that my screen is cracked in several places. Thank God i purchased the Assurion insurance. I am without phone for 2 days and out 100 smackers but its better than buying a brand new phone for a whole lot more.
