    Hey guys! I am new to the forum and did some searching but could not find a lot on what kind of bluetooth headsets people are using with the Incredible. So, what kinds are you guys using? Pro's? Con's?

    I have been looking at the Jawbone Icon but wanted to get some opinions!

    Thanks so much for having me and helping me out!

    Jawbone Icon + Dinc = :D

    I have had the Icon a couple of weeks now & I am very happy, I love hearing who is calling without having to look at the phone along with listening to voice mail & music without any cords is priceless, only negative would be the 4 hour talk time, (listening to music is considered talk time).

    Thanks for the reply! Does the Jawbone announce to you who is calling from your address book? Also, do you hear the Google maps instructions? Oh, one more....Can you voice dial from it? I know this is not supported in this version of Android but didn't know if the icon helps that out.

    Thanks again!

    The caller announcement is from the address book or it will tell you the callers number.

    Yes on the navigation.

    Haven't tried voice dialing yet...I think it will work with froyo.

    My old Jawbone Noise Assassin II works well, and it works with the navigation. Does not announce address book names, though.

    I've got an app already that announces the names/numbers of callers through the speaker. I have no idea how well it'll work through the BT headset though.

    Just ordered the Blueant T1. After a lot of researching I liked it just a tad better than the Jawbone. Love that it has an app for Andriod!

    It was cheaper as well. Got it for 54.99 with free shipping at wuzbee.com

    Thanks to everyone and teufeltexan for thier help. I will update you when I receive it and try it out!:D
