I just got a BlueAnt Q2 to replace my BlueAnt Q1 that broke. I use it primarily for my phone but also my PS3. Never had a problem with the Q1. I go to pair mode and on the XMB on my PS3 I register it fine but it can't seem to connect....anyone able to help please??!! Thanks!
Addednum: I also tried my wife's BlueAnt Q1 and it didn't work tonight where it did 2 days ago!! Since the last time I used it I did get the almost yellow light of death whereI turned in the PS3, the fan went really fast, then the system shut off and the red light blinked. Not sure if this has anything to do with it...
