I have not used it with a BB yet but did use it with my HP 6315 and it worked great. Nice sound easy to use.

It is a good "intro" BlueTooth device, but overall I don't like it. You have to turn it on an off via a goofy switch and it is a bit heavy on the ear. If you are looking for a GREAT BlueTooth headset, look at the Motorola HS810 and HS850.

I'm a "casual" bluetooth user. I purchased the 2500 to use on my 45 minute commute each way, and occasionally when I am inside and need to talk hands-free. I've been pleasantly surprised how far I can walk away from my BB and still get decent reception. For me the 2500 is fine. Very inexpensive; sounds clear; despite what another post said I don't notice it on my ear. I'm sure there are better ones out there but it meets my needs. Only complaint--for my first call when I get in the car the 2500, doesn't automatically "connect'--I have to press a button by the mouthpiece. I assume this is what one post was referring to. Don't know if other bluetooth headphone users have to do this. In any event it is not a big deal.

I have both the Plantronics 2500 and the Motorola HS810. I much prefer the Motorola over the Plantronics. That's just my personal oppinion though. I've got several users that like the 2500. The Motorola is smaller, and the button actually works (to dial the last number dialed). I never got the 2500 to do that. These things really need voice dial to make it even worth it though.

Funny I don't see that feature listed anywhere in the material for it!? Well I can't complain, it is a freebie!? But I've heard once you go bluetooth, you never go back! hahahah!
