HTC EVO View 4G may not support Bluetooth headsets after all

BluetoothNO Trying to pair a Bluetooth headset with a device can be a hassle and even more of a pain when it turns out support might not have even been included, as is the possible case with the HTC EVO View 4G. 

If you go to the official View Help & How-To page, you will see that it claims you can have a hands-free conversation using a compatible Bluetooth headset or car kit. But if you check out many of the forums around the web, it seems that something is wrong with the Bluetooth profile that has been included in the device.

Helping to lend more credit is a report by xda member frh1, who worked with not only Sprint's technical support to try and pair multiple Bluetooth headsets but also with HTC's own technical support. The latter revealed that according to internal documentation, the EVO View currently only has A2DP support for media audio;  HFP support for a hands-free profile was not listed.

Now none of this has been officially verified by HTC, but hopefully we will find out a straight answer soon enough.

How has your HTC EVO View 4G been stacking up? Have you somehow managed to get a working Bluetooth headset to properly pair and function with the device as more than just a Bluetooth speaker? If so, share your secrets with us in the comments so we may also gain your power.

  • I am working on an issue like that on another tablet. I do not understand why they don’t just use a fully working bluetooth stack for these things.

    I use a BlueAnt with my Evo View. Works pretty good.
