Serious bluetooth issues are occurring on my phone when connected for long periods of time to my MS Band.
- Car stereo audio via phone bluetooth will intermittently disconnect. Music is locally stored and thus the issue is not due to streaming performance. The interruption is short and frequent as if buffering the music.
- Eventually any bluetooth device will fail to connect with my phone - excluding the Band. Attempting to manually connect an already paired device fails from either the phone or device interface. Sometimes simply toggling the Bluetooth on\off will allow devices to reconnect.
- The OS oftenly crashes causing a soft-reset at least twice a day.
- At times the phone stays stuck in a infinite short pulse toggle between a 'connected' and 'paired' state - other devices are in a connected state, but the Band states it has no Bluetooth connectivity.
The phone does not experience these issues when the MS Band is disconnected. Note however that once these issues have occurred, simply disconnecting the band will not resolve the issue; I must restart the phone and do not make efforts to connect the Band.
The OS crash usually occurs after experiencing the intermittent audio disconnect for quite a while. I suspect the phone is in such a bad state that bluetooth drivers eventually cause a kernel level crash. For example, XBox Music would be playing to my car stereo via Bluetooth with intermittent audio disconnect, and then randomly the phone restarts. After the restart the interface between devices works as expected, but the same issue reappears the next day (assuming the phone hasn't restarted while I'm sleeping).
