The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Re: How to stop it calling people

hanks for confirming this.

 

Does this occur with every mobile device you are connecting your earbuds to?

 

Are you also initiating the call or is this an incoming call?

Re: How to stop it calling people

When it’s connected to my iPhone. It’s outgoing call. Earbuds start making a call by itself. When that happens I can’t even stop to call

Re: How to stop it calling people

That's really strange ak78, the only way to start an outgoing call from the earbuds is by using the voice assistant on your phone. To activate the voice assistant, you would touch and hold the right earbud until you hear a tone, is anything touching the right bud when you've noticed the calls happening at all?

 

Also, have you noticed any pattern to when the phone will make a phone call at all? Is it always after a certain amount of time, only when you change app, or anything like this?

Re: How to stop it calling people

only time it happen is when I try to put it in my ear. So maybe my finger is touching too long (5 seconds?) on earbuds? So if I unable the voice assistant, would it stop calling?

Re: How to stop it calling people

This would be a good thing to test. Can I please also ask you to pair the buds with a different phone and see if the same happens. Keeping the voice assistant active when trying with a new phone. I would like to pinpoint what is causing the issue so that we can fix this for you.

Re: How to stop it calling people

so I have only one iPhone has sim in it. I tried to connect with my old iPhone. It connect to Siri and still tried to make a call when I was putting right one in my ear. The phone doesn’t have a sim so it didn’t start calling but I assume if it could, it would’ve. London is in lockdown right now and I don’t see anyone so unfortunately I can’t try with other phones.
