Boost Bluetooth Signal Strength?

Is there anyway to boost the strength of the bluetooth signal? I am in effect trying to boost the range that my bluetooth can be from whatever gadget I am using that is receiving the bluetooth signal.

I do not believe there is anyway to do this unless your willing to take apart your phone and replace the chip with a different frequency and longer range on it which takes time effort and can void possible warranty.

A2DP range could be better. When I put my phone in my left pocket it skips. Right pocket and it's OK lol

MightyROM comes with some good profiles for BT.

Re: Boost Bluetooth Signal Strength?

Has anything come out that can boost Bluetooth signal strength since the last post here, almost a year ago?

I recently got a pair of MotoROKR Bluetooth Headphones, and the music skips when the phone is in my coat pocket.

Not that I'm aware of... The Diamond has a fairly weak Class 2 Bluetooth radio, and a weak Wifi radio for that matter. Motorala has the Class 1 SoundPilot S705 BT Stereo Headset with FM Stereo available. The unit uses earbuds though, and the built in phone mic is pretty weak. Fortunately, streaming music is stronger due to the Class 1 rating. In turn, you can have the Diamond streaming from inside a case without any BT packet loss problems. That said, it's not like having the range of two Class 1 BT devices paired, but it's better than two weak Class 2 devices paired for sure. The included earbuds are cheap, so I'd recommend trying out the Sony MDR-ED21LP Fontopia In-The-Ear Earbuds. They do not fit tightly in my ear canals, and stay in my ears, even while skating pools or mountain biking. Plus, they still allow outside sounds in for safety, and have decent sound at a reasonable price. If you're not into earbud type BT headsets, try to find a Class 1 or a strong Class 2 headset that works with your Diamond. Checking out online reviews may help as well.

Best to all,
R
