Other than that, no one has even noticed I was hands free.
My car is pretty noisy as well.
Works great for bluetooth. I've never heard any bluetooth device sound as clear as a good wired headset.
Also, not all bluetooth software in cell pohones is created equally. Some phones may work fine with one device, and totally suck with another.

My cheap Jabra bluetooth works better with me driving down the freeway at 80 with the windows down than the F90 at a stop with the windows up.
Blackberry 8830 is the phone.

Shure used to make an awesome one that attached to your seatbelt but looking at their website, it looks like it's long gone.

The problem is in the device itself or rather the blue tooth software revision that is in the device.
The way you can tell if your mic is bad, try out the voice recognition. Use it with your ipod etc or try to make a call by using the "call ###-###-####
If it can pick up those commands and understand you properly but with bluetooth voice calls the person you're calling can't hear you, there is your proof.
I've said it a few times, blue tooth was very flakey and unreliable until I did a software update on my phone.
So, try that as well.
Just my understanding of the situation, hope it helps.

here's the link to the other thread that you would've found if you would've searched.
I have a Z2 and it was notorious for mic problems. A few things that helped up in the Z-series forums were:
1) when pairing the phone, make sure the volume is turned less than 1/2 way on the phone
2) set your output to come from the left side only
3) dont turn the output for the voice very high, it can ricochet off the other door and into the mic, causing an echo for the caller on the other end.
Try these things and if they dont work, dig around the Z-series forums. Alot of things were tried and there's plenty of info there.

I just soldered a 2.5mm TS connector onto a motorola mic from one of their bluetooth kits(I work at a cell place, we had some old ones lying around) and it sounds great now. I can confirm that my issues were with the actual mic and not the bluetooth or the head unit. I have an F700 btw.
Hmm. I'd be afraid to screw mine up...just two wires to solder? How much for the part to the general public?
