    We’re counting down the days to January 2005, which is the rumored date being thrown around.
    It'll be a while before we see them, but I am looking forward too it as well.

    I don't think it will be compatible with the 650... here are the specs...note that it is comatible with bluetooth 1.2

    bluetooth v1.2 is backwards compatible with version 1.1.

    The headsets extras may not work, but the general useage of it should be fine since the 650 supports the headset profile.

    just like TDMA and CDMA phones would fall back on old analog technology when outside of digital range, BT 1.2 devices can talk to BT 1.1 devices at the 1.1 level.

    Well caller ID works fine on my HBH 660 headset from Sony Ericcson!

    So I am sure it will work here as well... That is the only extra that "comes" from the phone!

    hey mikeradio do you also get the dely of displaying a prior number call on a new one coming in(ie sometimes not being accurate)?
  9. #10  
    No..works fine always and comes right in!
  10. #11  
    well you know I figured out that if I ignore a call from the phone and not the head set then what's happining is that the headset will "store" that number in it "memory" bank and than when a different call comes in the "old" number is displayed.
    I just have to be consistant about interacting with the headset...

    Based on the picture it doesn't look like you can use an eargel with the bt800, only the hanger thing to hook onto the ear. I've never worn a bt headset. Is it better to hang on the ear? Or better to have eargel? I have a treo650 and people have sworn that using an eargel drastically improves the volume issue with the t650. However, if I hold out for the bt800, I'm not sure I'll be able to use an eargel thing with the headset. What do you guys think.....

    I have the same problem as pixhershko. Any solutions out there?

    are you using BTMute. I found btmute to cause a few incorrect numbers with my hbh660. disabling it helped greatly, i think.

    I believe the BT800 and BT500 were announced last spring with a fall release date. They still have not been released. Does anyone know what holding up their release?

    Do you know what the "street price" will be on the Jabra BT500 & BT800?

    The ear gel doesn't work for all of us anyway. My ears are too big! It just falls out. The ear clip works fine but the volume is an issue.

    Spoke to Jabra and both BT500 and BT800 will be released late January. Yes, both will be backward compatible to Bluetooth version 1.1. Both are supposed to be smaller than their current BT250 from factor.

    Thx..was wondering when that elusive BT500 would finally see the light...hope it will be equally competitively priced as the rumored $120 price point for the BT800.
