Not sure if this type of review is appropiate here. But this is the only thing I've found that approaches a user group for this phone. I know I am always looking to read anything there is about my new toy. So here goes....
I recently purchased the Modus 3500 for my Indulge. Thought I'd post my thoughts about it.
I purchased it through ebay for $37.00, almost half what Samsung gets.
This is my first BT headset altho I have experience w/ a BT keyboard.
I thought the included instruction booklet was helpful. Comically, it's not a booklet, but multipage instructions folded very small. But set up was easy. Once it's paired, it remembers, which is nice.
Included were several adapters, a usb charger,two different earhooks as well as a pocket clip attach.
I liked the idea of the included usb to male 3.5 earphone jack. It was perfect for playing tunes through my old Archos speaker dock I thought. But I couldn't answer the phone when it was hooked up....
But the headset works great, both alone and with the included stereo earbuds. Some very infrequent drop outs. Not very often, just a click really. But overall awesome performace. But I have simple needs musically speaking. An audiophile might argue on sound quality.
Build quality is good. I've seen complaints on the flimsy earhooks, and I can see why. I'm thinking it'd be hard to make them sturdier short of making them of metal. Regardless, won't be an issue for me. I bought this unit strictly for the stereo earbuds.
Built in battery life seems fine. I have not tried them for an extended period though. I went for a 45 min. walk yesterday with the tunes up fairly high w/ no problems. It does die rather quickly just sitting around. And I did not time it, but it seemed to charge rather quickly the other day. I'll try to pay attention to charge time and edit this post later.
All in all, I'm happy with the headset.
