Welcome to BBForums, Mulak!

My wife is Deaf and I'm hard-of-hearing. We both use ATTW/Cingular 7290's. Our previous 2-way pagers were Motorola T900 Talkabouts and Blackberry 850's.

We absolutely love our personal 7290's! We sync ours with each of our own MS Outlook2003 at home. We haven't hooked them up at work.

Many companies out there have found the Blackberry a valuable communication tool. I think it would be a huge plus in college.

Today, I bought a Motorola H820 bluetooth headset to try out. Volume could be better, but I could hear the other party without the unit touching my CIC hearing aid. They could hear me better than the wired headset that came with it. So, it works well as a phone too.

I did try the TTY setting to call my TTY at work, but nothing happened. I believe I was supposed to plug the BB into a portable TTY, but that seems redundant as there is a keyboard right on the BB! I could use help here if anyone knows.

Good luck!
