Default Bluetooth Headset with caller-id

Please Login to Remove!

I know i can use a BT headset with my 8700 but would the caller-id display function work on a BT Headset with caller id feature.

I understand that the BT profile on the BB units are limited which is why i am asking. The headset unit in particular is this

This unit is suppose to display the caller id of any call as well as enable the user to view/browse the phone's address book. Anyone use this before?

If the BT headset is hanging on my ear, why do I want a caller ID on it?

I have tested a bluetooth headset from a company called tekkeon with caller id on it, and it worked just fine on my 8700g.

Youxxx8217;ll have to do the same thing if the BT is on your ear. Which is easier to do, for me it would be looking at my BB.

sometimes the ear is closer than the pocket. like on a crowded bus. also some put their bb in their bag. the bt headset with caller id is actually pretty cool to use.

I see your point but I donít put my BB in a man bag/man purse (thatís probably against some kind of man law) and I donít ride the bus.

Now, if the Bluetooth headset had a voice saying the name or number of the incoming call, then we'd be in business!

It's also good to know for car kits with a display... or that overpriced Nokia one which shows pictures.

The caller ID on a BT headset is actually pretty useful. I picked up a Sony Ericsson headset that had caller ID on it. It wasn't a VITAL feature, but yeah, I used to use it with an older, inferior device (Palm Treo). I carried the Treo in my pocket, and it was a bit easier to take the headset off my ear to see whos calling, than to take the Treo out of my pocket.
But I didnt like the sound quality with that headset, so I dont use it any more.

I like the above suggestion of a voice-caller ID, that tells you who's calling. If someone comes out with one of those, I'll be first in line.
