    Nop, ... I live in mexico, so i guess BB packages are not the same world wide ... does that means I have to buy a specific BBPearl Headset?

    Erm, maybe ! I will have to check what my wife got, however, i have to admit - I cant remember the headset that she got was an original OEM. But it was a definite Stereo headset.

    It looked something like this - which you could probably pci up for $10 but its how much you want to spend

    There are a wide variety of headsets that will work with the Pearl. Just make sure that it fits a 2.5mm jack. I received a BB stereo headset, but wasn't all that pleased with it, so I picked up a Jabra C220s, which works wonderfully. I posted about it earlier...on this thread here. Or there is always the option of buying the 3.5mm-to-2.5mm adapter (something like $10 or so) and using your regular 3.5mm headphones. (which is what my girlfriend is doing). hope this helps!

    good tip... pretty simple, but I hadn't thought about it! I think I am going to go with the adapter idea, i already have a headset that i like!
