I've got a Samsung u540 cell phone and a Motorola H500 over-the-ear bluetooth headset. I keep them both in my cargo pants pocket. The big, shiny, oh so easy to accidentally press button on the headset is constantly getting hit while in my pocket, thus activating the redial feature. It was funny the first 10 times I left my friends a five minute long I'm-in-a-store-somewhere-or-maybe-on-the-bus voice mail, but now it's driving me crazy. Help me stop ass-dialing people!
Can you recommend a quality over-the-ear bluetooth headset that won't do this? By this, I don't just mean "doesn't do it for you", because my boyfriend has the same headset and he says it doesn't do this. I'd prefer a headset that flips quickly on and off without dropping the bluetooth connection while it's off, or has a lock button, or has some similar feature so that it cannot dial people while it's in my pocket. I never use the redial or voice dial features, anyway -- I only use the headset button to answer calls and hang up.
Extra points for voice clarity. Thanks for any advice you can give!
