I've bought Plantronics GO bluetooth earbuds and when I double-click them (next song) it starts calling my last call.

Any thoughts what goes wrong here? plantronics replied that it are my phone settings. What did I miss?

The Plantronics rep sounds creative. I've never heard of or seen that "setting" (doesn't mean it doesn't exist). You could consider getting some cheap headphones with a mic and play/pause button that works with iPhones to see if it works correctly. Chances are it is the earbuds' problem - just my guess. – bassplayer7 Mar 11 '13 at 20:10
@bassplayer7 I was using Apple earphones before (in-ears) with remote on the cable. They work as expected.. I was thinking, maybe bluetooth has settings somewhere? - Thanks for your reaction :) – Rob Mar 11 '13 at 20:12
Nope, there really aren't any BT settings at all. I forgot about the Apple earphones - those are evidence enough of the way it should work. I have Bluetooth Iogear headphones and they work properly. I would go back to Plantronics and push for a resolution. – bassplayer7 Mar 11 '13 at 20:18

The plus and minus keys are for next and previous song. Double clicking the middle button will start calling the last person in the "recent calls" list.

So you were actually pressing the wrong button? – Alex Mar 12 '13 at 7:53
Assuming that every device works the same on an iPhone and Plantronics providing me wrong information - yes. But I won't remove this question as it might help others with the same problem. – Rob Mar 12 '13 at 8:12
as you say it will help others that are wondering the same thing. If this answer is something you consider a solution you can mark it as an answer. :) – Alex Mar 12 '13 at 9:00
