    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has an HTC sensation (t-mobile) that they have paired to the JBL head unit. Mine pairs correctly, and I can use the dialer (i.e. "Dial By Number" then "611") it will dial the phone number, but the call takes place on the phone, not through the speakers. In about 5 seconds or so, the radio comes back on, so it doesn't recognise that it is on a call.

    I'm not sure if its the head unit, or the phone that is causing this issue, anyone successful with this combination?

    I've managed to add some bug guts to the front
    I don't have experience with that phone, but I use an iPhone 3GS with my 2011 JBL Bluetooth system. When I get a phone call or dial a number, I have options popup on my phone where I can choose to have the call be on the iPhone, the car stereo, or speaker phone.

    I would look at the user manual for your phone and see how it's supposed to work.

    Found the issue, its 611. That paricular number starts a troubleshooting app, and that means data, the BT connection doesn't like voice and data together, so it kills it. Real phone numbers work.
