After I have paired a bluetooth headset, if I press the call button on the headset it automatically calls one particular number? Why does this happen? I would have thought it should bring up the dialer for me to select who to call.

I'm running a HTC Magic with 2.3 Gingerbread if that matters.

I don't think this is an Android issue. Unfortunately, there is no (It would have been on topic for the late lamented, though.) – Al E. Apr 1 '11 at 12:29

It call the last number used in or out, its supposed to be a quick reconnect after a dropped call...

The the BT is supposed to be hands free, so using the phone to select a call is none hands free!

You should be able to double tap the button and get a voice recognition control, with various occasionally funny results

This is probably determined by your particular headset, not your phone. I have two different headsets and the call button does two completely different things when pressed.
