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 bluetooth.stackexchange.com. (It would have been on topic for the late lamented gadgets.stackexchange.com, though.)

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.
