    I just received the auto-link version of this headset. I bought it based on pda_jedi's recs. It did link up fine and the audio and crackling is tolerable but I still have to hit the switch on the headset when a call comes in. I just tried to let it ring and it never picks up. If I hit the switch then it works fine.

    I can only assume that the use of the voice dialing software that pda_jedi mentions is what really enables 'hands-free'. Could that be true?

Beware though before you buy this headset as many here including myself are uphappy with the audio reception on this baby. It's great as long as you hold the phone 10 inches from the earpiece and turn off your Wi-Fi and cordless phones in your house. Otherwise I'm happy with the other aspects of it but so what given the poor reception.
    I've seen the posts about the poor reception of the jabra bt 250, but I have pretty good reception and I can be across the room (about 25 feet) with a WiFi network and three cordless phone in my house and still get good reception. There is a noticable increase in the amout of crackling, I'll give you that. Considering that my t650 is always attached to my belt when I'm using the headset (2-3 feet), it's not a problem for me.

    Rick,

    Go under into the Prefs app, then under "Handsfree", set the autoanswer dropdown menu to answer after one or two rings. It's probably set to disable as a default. This should allow you're headset to "autoanswer" after "auto-link".

    From reading these forums and personal use, the best voice dialing app for the T650 is called Voice Dialing by VoiceSignal. It comes as a trial on the CD that came with the Treo 650 or you can download it from the P1 website. You can prompt it to call names out of your contacts list or call individual numbers. After 14 days, it will only do numbers and you have to register for $20 for the name function to return. Well worth $20 in my opinion. The only glitch it that you have to speak into the T650's microphone as Bluetooth 1.1 (which the T650 has) doesn't support Bluetooth activation. Only Bt 1.2 does this as well as streaming of mp3 music to Bt headsets. Check out this palminfocenter.com article about the other voice dialing options.

    Good luck!

    Congrats ... you're the first person that I have heard about who is having a good user experience with either version of the BT250.

    I stand by my comments and cannot recommend to anyone to buy this one. As far as I am concerned, any crackling or loss of signal at close range is just unacceptable.

    What Bt headset do you use?

    SofTTware, you can add me to the list as well. After several days of using it, I find the BT250 performs quite well(except in windy conditions). If it is good in my work environment (see my earlier post) the performance will be good anywhere.
