So i have recently discovered that the less i deal with my phone directly the better my quality of life should be. I have delt pretty much all the bs social networking apps from my phone and try my damndst to keep my eyes off of the screen. But the problem lies with my phone - the actual phone part- i get a lot of calls per day for business and well, i hate it. Good for business but bad for my anti phone phase. A buddy of mine got me off of the iOS band wagon and into the android eco system a while back and uses a blueant , now i would like to take his word for it and im sure i can, but im intesteed to know what the what the community uses, if any....

nah not very often headsets are normally too queit when there is background noise for me. i like them just nowhere near loud enough. wind noise in a car is terrible on BT headset it gets aggrivating not being able to hear the other person talk.

I don't use it. You don't sound like it would solve any problems for you. And it creates other problems of its own - the extra distraction of another gadget, the bluetooth not always working perfectly, etc.

If you see that it is going to solve a big problem for you, that it would really fix something that's been bugging you for a long time, and that the solved problem outweighs the inconvenience and the cost, then sure, go for it - but somehow I doubt it.

I know that bluetooth is meant as a convenience feature, not an INconvenience feature - but I think that only counts for non-ADD'ers. ;) Having another thing to go wrong, another distraction, another thing to lose... you get the picture.

I do, but then I like the hands free nature of it. Then I can talk and take notes, so it's helpful.

Never understood how to make bluetooth work and i find speakerphone just as good so why bother?
