Well not recieving calls on headset is not normal, get your profiles checked, you may need to use the same settings as that of the profile your phone uses without a headset, make sure that the line you are using (Line 1 or 2) is the same for both profiles and the the answer mode is on any key. if this still did not do, you may try isolating the issue by using another headset.

the battery life seems okay, but there are other moto and 3rd party compatible batteries there that has larger capacity (longer life) you may try to check one out at radioshack or walmart or the same store where you go the unit.

good luck.

My first guess on the headset is that with yours, it opens the mic upon connection, press the red button 'end' on your phone and then call yourself using your home or work phone.

As to the battery, settings you can set for screen blanking may have something to do with it. If you commute to work, or drive a lot with the phone, when ever the phone has to search and access another cell zone it drains the battery, especially if you enter dead zones often, as the phone is hunting for an active non roaming cell zone.

Otherwise, check your screen blanking settings, don't play games, browse the internet, check you mail and then let it rest with the phone lid open and track the time it takes to get a low battery beep.

You may also want to navigate the setup screens for a menu that has the check for software updates on it and see if there is an update.

Should all this not apply to you and a new software update doesn't fix it, I'd take it to the phone store for a battery with more capacity then what you have. If you feel you were mislead by an ad or in store display, say so and say it emphatically without loosing control of your emotions. You'll probably get a better battery by doing this if you can hold back and not lose your temper... that's the hard part. I'd be pissed myself.

This phone may hail as a battery friendly phone, but it is not. it tends to run out of battery quickly. It is good to have a backup battery and charge on the ready.
If you want to reset the battery, drain it all the way down, then recharge it completely, the repeat.
When the headset is plugged in you should still be able to receive calls. You should be interrupted from what you are listening to so you can take the calls. This is not normal and should warrant some warranty work from the manufacturer.

No thats not normal, you should be able to receave calls and answer them from the headset if it has buttons.

can you try another headset?

Also about your battery, that sound about normal, you should try a bigger capasity battery on it if available.

    I just did a fast search. heres a extended battery for your product

    http://www.amazon.com/Original-Motorola-...

  • Ekse Jul 01, 2008

    compair the value you see in your battery to the value of the extended battery



    1380mAh Lithium Ion battery



    for example if your original is 600mah, you will get around double the standby and talk time.

My headset doesnt turn on, when I plug the charger the red light starts blinking


Could be a combo of low battery and not yet being connected. Charge it overnight and check on it in the morning.

Red blinking light


Hi, Ephraim. The flashing red light indicates that the device is showing "low battery". It could be that the LG phone charger fits the charging port on your bluetooth headset but it is not compatible with your device. In order for you to know that it is charging, the device should show a steady red light(means charging).
Please take a look at the table reference below.

This unit will not charge


If you try with another Motorola mini US plug charger and headset still doesn´t charge, it means that the internal headset battery needs to be replaced, maybe is less expensive to buy another headset than to change the internal battery of the one that you have.

Motorola razr2 v9m wont charge


My guess is that the charging port in your phone has gone bad. By holding it a certain way, you may be reconnecting it just enough to make the connection. Probably have a loose or broken wire inside your phones port. You may also see this is a problem if you try to hook it up to a pc.

The headset thingy won't get off my screen


Not sure what provider you are with so this info may or may not be correct. Sometimes when moisture gets into the place where you plug in your headset, the phone thinks the headset is still there, even if it is not. There are several procedures involving plugging in car chargers, wall chargers, turning the phone off and on, and doing all of this in a certain order (which I can't remember but your customer service should be able to walk you through.) It only works about 10% of the time. Try that procedure first. If it doesn't work, try to dry out that little hole for the headset with cool air ---don't use a hot hair dryer ----but that should be a last resort before you decide the phone is really dead.

Motorola H350 Bluetooth headset problems...


I would recommend that you verify that you actually have it plugged in all the way to your charger, and then verify that you have power at your outlet for your charger. That would be the first step. If it is really dead, then just leave it plugged in for a while and then check for the light. Be sure that the connecter is securely on the headset. Good luck.
