I just replaced my original M155 because I could not hear callers, but I could hear music and other app sounds. Now, I am having the same problem with the replacement. Is anyone else having a similar problem with their iPhone 4 and M155?

Yes, I have a hard time with the M155, completely dissatisfied.  If I do not answer the call within the first ring, the bluetooh quits working.  Sometimes the voice activated “answer” does not work, and if I try to use it then the phone does not work. 

I also noticed that my I phone says Im conected, I can actually redial through my M155, but then the audio is only through the phone.  I have to actually power done my phone and turn my phone back on again for the M155 to work. 

I downloaded the App “my headset” from plantronics, lets see if it is any better now.
