    thread moved by mistake - now returned to its rightful place, but it does look like the original title might be list to the misty mists of time. If somebody remembers the original title, I can switch it back.

    Sorry!

    If they're removing the 2.5mm headset jack I say good riddance. the jack was weak on my T650, and no longer works. I tried an adapter from the Athena connector to 3.5mm for heaphones, but it wouldn't stay in place.

    if the Mini-USB can replace the athena connector then I'm all set. one connector for digi-cam, phone, etc. that's what I'm looking for.

    but like Mal said; I've gone A2DP and I won't look back... i won't be missing the lost headset jack.

    Except on a plane, when using a bluetooth headset would be frowned upon, if not forbidden entirely, which would make for a pretty boring flight if you had planned to listen to music or watch movies on your PPC.

    I'm an A2DP convert as well, but it's always nice to have that backup option, even if it's just a bit kludgy.

    Same goes for IR, which allows me the use of my Belkin IR folding keyboard on a plane if needed. I sort of hope that one stays.

    I'm away from home at least three weeks out of the month on business.. and I ALWAYS use my Moto S9 with my 700wx on the plane. Most flight attendents this day care only about seeing you listen to the safety info... then they could care less.

    Thank GOD flight mode does not disable Bluetooth.

    This would be true except if there was no backup option, but as of now, it sounds plausible that they are using HTC's hybrid USB/Headphone adapter which is standard on the Touch and Mogul and other devices (HTC, evidently, is back to making Palm devices).

    So you still have a "wired" option, you just need the adapter that is included with the device. It's about as convenient/inconvenient as a 2.5-to-3.5mm adapter.

    That adapter is fugly. Hopefully Seidio will come through with a redesigned one-piece headset solution. I refuse to spend $100 for an AD2P headset and associated charging headaches.

    I got an A2DP Jabra stereo headset from Jabra with USB and Powerline chargers for 29 bucks. Things aren't as expensive as you think, and I use the headset with my computer and my home stereo system (via a Motorla DC800 - another relatively unknown and unappreciated device).

    Certainly sounds interesting. What is the model numer of the headset you are using? I couldn't find any under $50 anywhere last time I looked.

    My headphone is a Jabra BT620.

    You will have to look around - I've seen them sold anywhere from 24.99 to 85.99.

    I had to ditch my 700wx for a Blackberry...

    Definitely. Is it even possible to design a worse proprietary cable than the existing one?

    I'm in the same boat as you, except I'm waiting on Verizon to get the Curve. Just not that excited about the 800w at this point.
