Well, I decided to ignore all of the negative posts on the Apple Bluetooth Headset. I'm on my second one in as many weeks. In both cases, the headset worked great for a couple of days. Suddenly, you go to use it and hear nothing but static.

I actually like the physical fit of the device and the automatic pairing and charging indicators are really nice.

Since this has happened to me twice in a row, I am guessing the that AT&T store received a bad lot and I'm suck with another dying ear piece.

That, coupled with the incompatibility with the iPhone 3D dock, and I'm back to the Jawbone.

    I am on my 4th headset and I just warrantied it through the online support system. They have a pretty good turnaround. For the prices I paid, I'll continue doing this until I get one that works. I had no problems with my 1st Gen iPhone and this only started when I upgraded to a 3G. I'm wondering if something in the 3G causes the speaker to "blow out" in the Apple Headset? 3rd Party headsets work fine (but loose style points).
