    Just got the Palm Ultralight Wireless and I could never use it as a headset. It's horribly static-y. I've heard Jabra is also compatible, I know Motorola are not. Anyone want to weigh in? I've never really had a headset bluetooth or otherwise I thought was particularly good. One wired headset I had years ago when I had sprint pcs was OK but I don't recall the name.

    thanks

    You're talking about a small mono earpiece...yes? My wife loves her Jabra BT 125...it's small, cheap ($40), and Bluetooth 2.0 compatible.

    I started using a wired 2 in 1 headset over my Jabra BT150 because it just sounds better, and I like hearing through two ears. I mostly use a headset during phone conferences and the cable doesn't get in my way.

    +1. Plantronics are the way to go. I wont buy any other brand after using them. I have two different models and both are awesome.

    The problem is still with the 680 BT, not the headsets--unless you have vastly different experience than me, the thing still either freezes or otherwise loses operability after it switches to an incoming phone call, about 80% of the time.

    You actually replied to me in the softick forum before about the 680 > SAG > Bluetooth > headset issues and mentioned the above continuing issue you have.

    Do these freezes require getting out of the apps and back in or is it a freeze up requiring a reset? I'm trying to figure out just how annoying the issue is before I dump $100 on a stereo bluetooth headset.

    And for me, all this is simply to bypass the cheap jack. I'm more than content to use a wired headset for my audio books but after issues with broken jacks on my 650 I don't even want to deal with it on the 680. : |

    It is just the app. The phone doesn't freeze. But somehow the BT gets jammed. As I may have already said, then, it never misses a call coming in. I can always press the headset and the incoming phone call is right there--and I have to say it is a very comfortable phone call, with no problems as far as I can remember of anybody understanding me, and never with me understanding them.

    Getting back is often a problem. One of the problems is that, even when it works, there is a very large pause--perhaps 20 or 30 seconds. I know I have sometimes purposely waited, thinking maybe I have reacted too quickly for things to settle down, but that has never seemed to cure it, no matter how long I wait.

    You're right about the jack--mine broke on several 650s, and now on two 680s. In fact, I just ordered a universal BT receiver so I can avoid using the jack when connecting to my stereo. It was very cheap, (like fifteen bucks) and thus I am awaiting its arrival curious to see if it will work. Apparently it has no passkey and I'm not sure the 680 will pair with it.
