    Hey! If I win I will be using this Jabra BT530 Headset with my LG Dare or with my PS3! I’ve been needing to pick up another Bluetooth Headset, but I haven’t gotten around to it and now maybe I won’t!

    If I win I’d use this with a Palm 700P until I can get my hands on a PalmPre. Free is about the only price I’d pay for a BT headset…

    I’d like to use the BT530 with an HP Mini 1000. I don’t currently have one, though.

    I have an AT&T Tilt that I would use it with, but it has been quirky lately, so I am hoping there is an HTC phone as one of the give-aways. :)

    Ok, if I win (please! ;-) I’d use the headset with my blackberry curve. Especially since I just spent $35 on a headset last week that apparently no longer works, and I didn’t think to get some kind of warranty on it (and they won’t take it back).

  16. Mike

    03/17/2009 at 3:11 pm

    I would use it with my Blackberry Storm. My Motorola BT headset broke just last week and this is at a perfect moment. I have tried the Jawbone 2 but doesn’t really work that well. People tell me that they can still hear the background noise. I even turn on the noise reduction with no results. Taking it back and wait to see if I win.

  29. Carlos

    03/17/2009 at 7:58 pm

    I will use it with my HTC TyTn II, with my tablet PC HP TX2120US and with my Samsung i320 :)

    This would be great, I was using a Jabra BT8040 for the past year but lost it while Christmas shopping. I bought a Motorola that was on sale but no one could hear me over the background noise, you get what you pay for. The devices I would currently use it with would be my R2Hv umpc and my HTC Wizard phone which I hope to upgrade soon.

  33. Linda

    I’m on a mission to find the best headset. So far, I’ve stuck with the Plantronics Voyager 520. But I’d love to try this one out.

    I’ll use it with a MacBookPro and with a BB 8830 WorldPhone.

    Thx :-)

    I would use this bluetooth headset on my tx2000 for my online speech class. I’ve got 3 more semesters of speech related classes. Since I do them online I have to film my speech being presented to my friends and I also have to wear a headset. I’ve been using my old gaming headset, which means I’m restricted by the cord. Also I look pretty silly on video with a headset trying to talk to an audience.

    I’d use it with my LG Dare, which I somewhat regret buying, and I would use it with my Lenovo s10 for Voip.
