    Ok folks... have a weird bluetooth issue.
    Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

    Important things to note:
    • I have an AT&T Glaaxy S4
    • I'm pairing it with a 2013 Kia Optima (SX-L)


    The pairing process works just fine.
    The streaming of audio works just fine.
    The PHONE though is having the following problems.

    1) I can successfully make or receive ONE phone call through the car.
    After that one call the car will still make or receive the call (it shows as connected and the call timer starts ticking)... but I can't hear anything and neither can the person on the other end.

    2) Can't seem to answer incoming calls from the steering wheel.

    What I've tried:
    • Rebooting the phone after the first successful call will let me make/receive one more. But wow what a pain in the ***.
    • Turning bluetooth off and back on after the first successful call does NOT.
    • I've updated the phone (still at 4.4.4) - no luck
    • I've un-paired and re-paired - no luck
    • I've downloaded the "SoundAbout" app - no luck
    • Disabled the "S-Voice" app..


    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    I don't know if this will help - I had problems with bluetooth and my 2011 Hyundai Sonata, so I did some research and found that this thread had the solution. I hope it helps shed some light on your problem.

    Welcome to Android Central! You don't have any other Bluetooth calling devices (like a headset) in the car as well, do you?

    Nope.

    From time to time I wear my moto360 which is a bt device. Its not a headset type device but it is also paired to the phone. ... but the problems persist even when no Other bt devices are present.

    Thanks a bunch dm3ready.
    I had already disabled S-voice with no luck... but hadn't considered the "google now" stuff being the culprit.
    I'll try it out later today when I'm back at the car and report back.

    That seemed to do the trick!

    Per the thread dm3ready linked to I went into the Google Now settings and disabled the "Ok Google from any screen" option and things seem to be working now.

    Thanks a bunch dm3ready!!

    I just updated google now and had the same issue. I had disabled google now voice detection from any screen but after the update it was turned back on. Guess this bug still isn't fixed.
