Summary: I haven't tried the device yet - it is charging - but I knew that this was not a good deal when I saw the padded envelope. From my experience, when the product I ordered arrives in a box and is well protected, I have a good feeling about my purchase.
Summary: Well, I know this kind of sucks to rate the product low due to my complete disgust with the "NON" Retail package that this unit came in, but... I opened the box from my order of the "BlueAnt S4 True Handsfree Speakerphone & Wireless Bluetooth 2.1 [Retail Packaging]"..
Cons: Does not hold a charge, USB charging cable is way too short. The magnets that attach it to clip are so strong that it damaged and wiped the HD in my laptop while it was charging with the USB cable.
Summary: I purchased this from Prunedanish through Amazon after buying one directly from Amazon that the wife loved. This one from Prunedanish was clearly used. It did not come in the retail box. There was a great deal of pink highlighting in the user manual.
Summary: I am sure the BlueAnt S4 is a great product but the one I received was used, scratched and not in its original packaging. Amazon clearly states it is sold by PruneDanish but is fulfilled by Amazon. Not the case at all.
Summary: expensive. worked straight out of the box with iPhone 4, transferred phone book from phone without problem. After that no response, after a full charge the battery ran down in a day. tried 2 other phones, Droid based and Palm, no response, can't zero out contacts on phone so I can RMA it.
Pros: when it worked it worked well, clear voice in and out
Summary: I did not get the retail package. I got a used item that was DOA. It came wrapped to a piece of cardboard with missing item. Looks like I am the second one to get crap from this company. I returned it and will buy elseware.
Summary: I got this so that I could use the Car Locator app that automatically records from the GPS the coordinates where you are when you turn off the bluetooth speaker... that way I will be able to find my car even when I'm not paying attention to where I parked it!
Pros: It pairs easily with my Motorola Droid, has good call volume, and can play music from the phone as well (albeit with volume for music that's too low for my taste)
Very good hands-free car Bluetooth speaker solution

Summary: This is the first time in a while I had to have a separate Bluetooth hands-free speaker in my car as my new car has no built-in solution. I went through a few other options that I bought and then returned as they weren't satisfactory, before finally settling on this product.
