I bought my $120 bluetooth in hopes that I could use it to listen to all of my music and movies I have on my Samsung Blackjack. Nope. So I had to still use my corded headset to shackle myself to the phone for that. Then I was looking and found bluecast! I was in high hopes. Nope. Doesn't work. You can hear static in the headset but that's it. Back to the shackles for me.
Won't work with my Blackjack.
This product is awesome and by far and away the most practical application I have ever bought. Simply put this is a godsend for all salesmans who like listening to podcasts but also get many phone calls throughout the day. Just keep your bluetooth headset on all the time and Bluecast will take care of the rest. Listen to your podcast => you hear the beep for a call => bluecast places podcast on hold => take call => end call => bluecast continues podcast where you left off. Or listen on weekends doing chores around the house and take calls seamlessly when they come in.
None, awesome product!!! This probably allows me to listen to 33% more content in a single week.
Why 1 min ?
small, actually works as advertised ( switches between the player and phone seamlesly) cheap, compact.Net installed without problems on storage card( "read me" has a download link), doesn't do anything weird to my sda like most crap I ever installed, can listen to my stuff wire free

Please I have A T-Mobile SDA and I cannot get Compact.Net to install on my SDA I'm trying everything possible but I know I must be missing something. Please reply.... firstname.lastname@example.org
I can finally receive my calendar alerts via my bluetooth headset instead of alerting/annoying the world at large.
If you forget to turn on your headset first the program just doesn't respond. Took me a few minutes to figure out why. A message that your headset is not available would be great.
It works every time with a reg bluetooth, No joke. The install is easy, the program works great. I run HTC 2125 w/ moto 850, no issues at all, just wireless music.
the .net dl is not as much of an issue as i thought it was going to be. you can get it from microsoft it is free and easy... click through
Why pay for it

I checked the blutunes website as ended up terribly confused about what were just skins and what was the actual program. Paid for Bluecast to save myself the frustration. Works great!
This is my first review and I only signed up on download.com because I wanted to express how much this product has changed my life this week.
First let me tell you how things usually are in my life.
One word, choatic. I am addicted to podcasting and I am a road warrior who is always on a plane heading to some less than familiar city. My
problems first started when I had a pair of stereo headphones with mic that came with my phone. The problem was, they kept getting tangled in a
knot and I had to spend 5 minutes untangling them everytime I wanted to use them. It was also difficult pulling them off and putting them on as I
conversed with people during the day. I guess I could have cut one ear or just bought a mono pair but that is besides the point.
About 4 months ago I bought a couple pairs of retractable headphones after searching Amazon and the Net for over 2 hours. When they arrived one
pair was immediately discarded because they were too bulky, the other pair was slim but only stretched 24 inches so I couldn't have them in and
attached to my belt clip, I had to carry the phone. That blew!! In addition it didn't have a mic so I had to pull out the headphones when a call
came in. This task was only complicated more while I was driving. In additon, as I was walking throughout the day I often inadvertantly got my
hand stuck in the cord and practically ripped off my ears.
This week I happen to come across BlueCast and let me tell you, WOW!!! I didn't really have high hopes but then again I really had too many close
calls with car and ear accidents not to try it. Well installing .NET Compact Framework 2.0 is about the only problem I had, and that is only
Microsoft's fault. .NET Compact Framework is huge and my first install failed, then I couldn't uninstall it either and it wouldn't let me try to
install again because it was complaining files were locked. I restarted my phone and got the install to work. Then I installed BlueCast without
a problem, paired my bluetooth headset with my phone, turned on a podcast, turned on BlueCast, and low and behold, sound was coming out my
Bluetooth headset. It was very audible too. FYI, I have a Cingular 2125 with a Motorola Headset. I then tried my MP3 ringtone and it actually
sounded great. After I calmed down from thinking how cool this was I decided to call someone. Bluecast and Windows Media player paused
themselves and then came right back as soon as my call ended. Well it seems like I have solved my problem, the only problem now is that I need a
second Bluetooth headset because I use the headset for 5 hours a day including calls and it needs to be recharged every night. I already don't
know how I lived with those headphones for song long. It is about time someone great an app with some value.
- Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 Install
- You have to remember to turn off BlueCast when not using audio, otherwise it just wastes the headset battery. Maybe a timer could be added
