    I am not exactly sure what you are looking for. But if you just want wireless I use a bluetooth headset, however that does not allow me to dial which I think is what you are looking for.

    Don't know if dialing is mandatory or not, but definitely check out the hulger phones - dead sexy with or without wires...

    Yea, almost perfectly. I just got a standard cell phone blue tooth headset from the local Verizon store. Mac OS X configured it the same way you would a mouse without a problem and once it was synced it shows up in the audio options for Skype. That easy.

    NOTE: There are a few quirks, like the bluetooth status thing says that it disconnects the headset after about 1 min of not using it. However, when I call with Skype it automatically reconnects with the headset without me doing anything 90% of the time. On occasion I do have to end the call before the other end has picked up and call again to get the headset to connect but not a big deal as it takes only a few seconds.

    This is the headset I have.

    Here you go my friend.

    My friend that came in town this weekend has the free-1 white phone, and uses it with his powerbook. I will be getting one because he is moving to Wales, and my wife and his wife can talk all they want @ no cost. Yipee!
