On my curve, when I'm listening to music, it acts as the pause/play button. I've never used it as a wired headset so I don't know exactly what it does, but I would imagine it does what 'cjcarbone' says.

With my 8100 I can have different uses with it. A short press of the button will answer calls. It will also mute calls. A medium press will end calls. A long press will activate voice dialing.

I prefer it over blue tooth.
