My Old Logitech headset actually broke. Went hunting for a replacement. Finally purchased this Sony Ericsson iv-835 Bluetoooth Headset via an internet dealer. The greatest thing about it is that it uses the same charger as my W810i. No more necessity of carrying more chargers while travelling, and I get a spare charger. Besides that, the usual technical geektalk, Bluetooth 2.0, DSP, tiny form factor. Stuff i noticed after i got it, Its got no loop over the ear, but its light enough to stuff into the ear canal. I had to use the largest ear bud. Its rather comfortable, but seriously, not snug enough to go jogging with. A small amount of headbanging will definately send the headset flying. Another point to note.. You CANNOT eat keropok crackers while using this headset!! Try stuffing your finger into your ear and eat the keropok crackers, the feedback is LOUD! Also, the redial function doesn't work, even with my w810i. Gonna email sony aboout it. **update: well i finally got it to work. Have to double press the button very very fast, for the redial to work. Even after knowing to have to double press it very fast, sometimes i still don't seem to press it fast enough.** I'm going to mod this headset soon so that i can put some sort of clip onto it to facilitate me clipping it to my shirt while working. I hate to have the headset in my ear all the time. More pictures after i mod it.

Finally.. after 6 months of cotemplating, I replaced my aging almost 2 year old Sony Ericsson T630 to the newer W810i The new W810i is Great.. Much faster Processor, and it has EDGE, which is great with DiGi, my cellphone provider. I have a small data plan for my DiGi account so edge is good for me.. Great things about the W810i: Its got EDGE! about 384 kbps down, which is half as fast as my streamyx. Plan to use it with my notebook for wireless data access.. Costs much less than any 3G access (i think) Walkman! Thats great, has a loud speaker too. Upgraded Java. Allows Maybank 2u use from my mobile and also the new Gmail mobile version. Looks Great! really.. my old T630 is aging in the aesthetics factor. Techie toys for geeky boys. The thing i hate most: It doesn't support Bluetooth Voice answer. Even my old T630 supported it but not this newer w810i. It also doesn't support the Voice redial. Its quite a big problem for me, as this means I can't answer calls with my Bluetooth headset anymore while scrubbed up. Still looking for a solution for this. Maybe a firmware hack may be possible. More later then
