Default Headset adapter needed

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I just got an 8300 and so far I love it. I have a wired headset that I used with my old phone that has a 2.5mm connector. I'd like to use it with the curve, which has a 3.5mm jack, but I can't find a 2.5mm female to 3.5mm male adapter. I can find tons of adapters going the other way (3.5 female, 2.5mm male).

Does anyone know where I may find one? I've checked ebay, radioshack, and my local electronics store. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It seems that I wasn't using a very good search term. Duh!

Here are a couple:
Amazon.com: 2.5mm Female To 3.5mm Male Stereo Audio Jack Adapter, Accessories, Electronics & Computers: Sports & Outdoors

eBay: 3.5mm Male to 2.5mm Female Earphones Adapter for IPOD (item 180137500073 end time Jul-14-07 12:21:30 PDT)

I hope these long links work. Good luck!

Keep in mind that a regular adaptor probably won't work. I tryed the one I have for an ipod clone with my pearl and it was a no go. It has to be a 4 wire connector that has a microphone option.

Hmmm... well, I was buying other accessories for my new Curve and had one thrown in for like 90 cents... if it doesn't work, I'm not out too much
I'll post back here when I get it. I only need mono audio and mic for this particular headset.
