    I just purchased one on the fly and am really worried that it just isn't all that's it's hyped up to be. Any honest comments would be much ppreciated. Also is anyone on the sprint $4 per month phone insurance plan? Is that worth it? I love my treo but want to make good investments ..before u know it I could almost buy a new desktop!..mickster

    The $4 month plan is great. I just got a replacement of my i300 last week. They use refubs when possible but they replace for anything minus cosmetics. $35 deductable. If your phone is lost or stolen they need a police report.

    I had no hassle, at all. 5 minutes on the phone, and the claim had been approved.

    Sign up is easy, and coverage becomes effective after 20 days (or so)

    For people with hardware like us this plan is almost a neccesity. They make their money by people never using the plan, or ones who replace samsung 3500s.

    As for the bluetooth, havent had any experience, but my concern was the transmitter was going to add bulk. Let me know.

    This has been discussed many times on the board. Do a search for Jabra. You will get a lot of data and opinions.

    Sorry if you feel my response was giving you the runaround. Doing a search would give you the benefit of many peoples observations as well as what is required to get it to work with the Treo. Obviously, you don't want to be bothered with such mundane tasks. Be that as it may...

    IMO, it's OK considering the price. Not as good (voice quality, volume) as the higher-end (price wise) units that require a bluetooth handset. Your mileage may vary.

    I tried it for several weeks and the sound quality is just not there. There is a bit of static and most people I talked to could tell I was on a headset. I am still sticking with my wired plantronics m143-N1 boom headset. Best sound quality out there.

    I'll wait until someone tells me the sound quality on those things have gotten better.

    IMHO this device is just not worth it for the Treo. I went through 4 of them before Jabra finally refunded my purchase (Very stand up of them I have to say). The problem I had with it was the sound quality. Almost all of the time, it either sounded like I was in a wind tunnel or extremely tinny. From poking around, this appears to be a problem only with the version that is for Nokia (and our beloved Treo). The stand-alone version or the one for use with non-bluetooth phones (but not Nokia) don't have these problems.

    If I were you, I'd wait until you have a device with bluetooth built-in.

    All of this aside, the headset is awesome from a design point of view. Very comfortable to wear for long periods and looks great.
