    Suould be the same as before, my headphones work the same.
    Maybe it was unpaired when you updated? When your bluetooth is on, do you see it in the airplay thing?

    It was paired correctly.
    Clarify my original post. What used to work is with iPad2 in my bag with cover on, I turn on my BT (and it connects automatically), then I double click talk and music plays. All this worked and I did not need to retrieve and open iPad and to start Music app.

    It did work great for me when standing in fast moving subway and I can start/end music just press talk button.

    TIA

    Weird, mine works fine
    Maybe unpairing and repairing will repair the issue

    That is the usual fix for Bluetooth things that stop working.

    Did unpair and pair ... Not
    Are you implying your talk button will 'activate & start' Music app while IPad2 cover Is 'closed'? (note this is the scenario I'm dealing with)

    I believe the ios default is BT talk button activates phone app.

    Since previous Skype did not support BT, the talk button activated music app.
    Now Skype has BT, it may take control the talk button.

    Would like to know if anyone has this works as the way I described above!

    TIA

    I'm using the Motorola sd-10 and I hate it
    It gives me headaches that lasts days and I've had to replace it twice since I bought it in July because one of the headphones stopped outputting sound


    I had a pair of plantronics 903, and I loved them (long battery, verry comfy, just work!) but when they died, the motos were on sale for 55$ and the plantronics full price at 90$. I regret it
    I'd get the 903+ if I were to buy them again, the 903s range for. Bluetooth isn't great and depending where my phone / iPad is it'll drop signal rather easily.

    I am using 903. Note it only has one talk button and does not start music automatically.

    You 903 may still be good. I learned the fix (see below) while I had problem a year ago.

    "hold power/pair button down for 5 or more seconds while charging then unplug powercord (while still holding the power button). It should turn back on if short-circuited due to moisture/overheating/miscommunication problems, etc."
