Great for playing music. Not suitable for conference calls – Ultra-thin Bluetooth V2.0 Music Receiver for Apple 30pin Speaker - White Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Wow: firmly built device. Plugs in easily into a iPod / iPhone dock. The device immediately plays a ding-dong sound through your speakers, so you knows that part is working. Connecting through Bluetooth is easy (tested with Android, iPad and Blackberry), and while connected, the device periodically gives a four-flash blue light. Sound is great
Cons:
It also 'snaps' the microphone from your phone. So apparently it presents itself as a microphone device too, which is not the case. The result: if you connect your phone, and you make a phone call, the other party won't hear anything. Pity; this way you can't use it for loudspeaker / conference calls. It did not work via a certain Apple dock. After connecting it directly to the Apple cable, it worked.
Other:
Tested with: I-WAVE in a logitech speaker, worked great with my Samsung Android I-WAVE in a Apple dock: no sound I-WAVE directly to Apple cable: worked great with Samsung Android, iPad and Blackberry
Bottomline:
Great device. Would be perfect it wouldn't snap the MIC so that I could use it to do phone calls with only the sound over the speaker (and still using the MIC of my phone)
