    I was just curious if anyone has ever tried using a cell phone bluetooth headset on their powerbook or other mac with bluetooth. I wanna get a Jabra headset for my razr v3 and thought it would be even cooler to be able to use it on skype on my powerbook.

    I have a Motorola HS820 and it works beautifully.

    I'm not even close to being an expert on the bluetooth headset front, but I'll point out that Sony Ericsson seems to be a very dependable company and has their HBH-600 on sale for $57.99! My goal is to use Skype with this as well. Any warnings why this is a bad idea from anyone?

    My Jabra has sat around unused for quite a while, but I think I'm going to get it back out and charge it and start trying to use it again. I used it quite heavily in the first year or so that I had it.

    I'm using the Nokia HDW-3 Bluetooth headset with Skype. Works fantastically! Infact I usually call out then go chill in the back garden and it picks up signal perfectly well.

    HBH-65 works fine!


    I thought of exaclty the same thing, and paired my Sony Ericsson HBH-65. You then have to select the sounds input and output in System Preferences.

    As for Skype & iChat AV, they work great! When I start having battery issues with this unit - il need a unit wit longer battery time!

    I use a Cardo Scala-500 with my cell phone, and I was able to connect it just fine with my Pbook. Works well with ichat.
