    I am just curious as to what people are using Bluetooth for besides a headset. GPS? Keyboards? What kind of new gadgets do I need for my blackberry?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Sadly, all I use it for right now is for my headset. I have GPS built-in now with the 8800, so I don't need a puck. Also have no need for a keyboard. Now if my laptop had bluetooth, I may just use it to tether via DUN.

    I only use mine for BT as well, although my Apple Macbook picks it up aswell...but aside of that...nothing..

    Besides my regular headset, I use it with my O'Rokr sunglasses. I have bluetooth on my laptop and occassionaly use a BT mouse. My Ipod has an icombi dongle so I can use that with my O'Rkrs the same time I use my phone.

    right now i have a jabra bt-350 and i love how it feels, but the speaker in it is going and everything sounds all crappy. i used to have the old logitech headset that would wrap around your ear like the bh-200 so i am interested in this. does it feel comfortable for long drives? is the sound pretty good? i have heard that the mic isnt that great so others say you sound muffled. do you find that so? thanks in advance for any insight you can give me on this headset.

    I love the BH-200. It's comfortable, and I can use it for a fews days talking quite often...

    But, I will say this, I hate the fact that Nokia has a 'tune' play in your ear when a call comes in. Why? Well, if you have your device set for personal caller tunes, then you can hardly hear it because the default Nokia tune is playing in your ear...

    That's annoying...there has to be some way to get rid of that, no?

    I doubt it. It's not like you can program anything into the headset. A shame really...

    i wish it had vibrate. my jabra bt350 does, its nice, i can have the music in my car cranked, unable to hear the phone, and still know im getting a call because my head vibrates.

    You learn something new everyday! I did know they made BlueTooth headsets that vibrated, too.

    Can you turn the sound off in the headset, have it on vibrate, BUT, still have the BlackBerry ring with a particular tone (for specific callers)?

    i dont think i can turn off the sound, but its so quiet anyway, doesnt really make much of a difference having it on.

    i got that nokia bh-200, and must say, i love it. feels similar to the old logitech headsets from a couple years back, same basic idea, wrap around both sides of the ear. great headset, good sound, and only 39.99 at bestbuy.

    Hmm, use your computer as a keyboard for your BlackBerry? You mean like a sort of remote access, like VNC? I've not tested it, just know of it...

    Aparently you can use the bluetooth for chating but im not sure how. Im real new to the BB underground so I could be wrong.

    Surprised no one mentioned in-car use. My bimmer connects flawlessly, even though the 8830 is not mentioned specifically by BMW. My LG gave awful performance via Bluetooth, and my wife would usually just hang up on me, but the BB works much better..now I can't get her to hang up. Plus I can use all the built in on-screen guides for dialing. I usually just keep it in my pocket when I'm in the car.

    Yeah, I'm bringing back an almost 2-year-old thread. What of it? Anyway, I use bluetooth for:

    1)Backup and file transfer
    2)Listening to stereo streaming music via Slacker while at the gym
    3)Listening to music on my laptop late at night while roomies are sleeping
    4)Connecting my Pearl to laptop and having a phone convo thru the laptop speakers...Pretty slick

    and I hear there's a way to use your device to control media apps on a PC/Mac via bluetooth but haven't ventured into that yet.
