Help me find a behind the ear bluetooth phone headset with good sound for people on both ends!

I often make calls that I need to take notes during, and have up until now been using the speakerphone function on my cell so I can type. A good friend told me that it sounded unprofessional, it picked up too much other sounds around me, I should consider getting a bluetooth headset for my phone. I did, getting the Jabra BT500, which was the top recommendation in Consumer Reports. It's a stylish behind the ear one. I really liked the looks, the intuitive use of it, that you could get it on your head quickly (I don't want/need to wear it all the time) and that it felt like it would stay on your head. However, in talking with that same straight shooting friend, they said, after two calls, that it was picking up the external sounds even more so, and often even more then my own voice! They suggested looking for one with good noise filtering abilities. That's where you come in. I'd like to know some of your favorites, that you've used for more then a day. [more inside]

How to Communicate (from the US) with our Daughter who is traveling to Strasbourg

I'm in the process of sorting through communication options for my step-daughter who will be spending the next several months in France (We live in the US). I've narrowed it down to a combination of Skype (on Mac OS X at both ends), the purchase of a cell phone locally in France when she arrives, and the use of a prepaid phone card for international calls... I'm hoping for some feedback from those that have tried these methods, and any other ideas you might have, there is, of course.... [more inside]

Skype changing prices?

I am getting the wrong price when I try to buy SkypeIn. Everywhere I look on the Skype webpage, the cost is listed as $12 for 3 months and $38 for 12 months. When I go to check-out, however, it offers me the choice of $18 for 3 months or $60 for 12 months. Is this a poorly-coordinated price hike or something wrong with the check-out?

Does Skype turn you/him/her on?

Does Skype "smooth" your voice to make it sound mellower, more seductive etc.? That's my impression; but is there any evidence to support it? I suppose an analogous means of customer retention might be the use in shops of "slimming mirrors".

My Little Telephony

We've decided to get rid of our landline and go with a softphone. The question is: which to choose? We have cable internet. We'd need call in (our own phone number) and call out (ability to call landlines from our PC). For the most part, we'd be talking to people with landlines. I know we can't dial 911 with these-- we have an old cell phone (no more minutes left, but kept charged up) for this purpose. What's better? Skype? Gizmo? Yahoo? Or something else? We know that USB handsets are available with Skype-- what about the others? Also, how would this work with a home network? Are we restricted to calling from one PC or can we do it from any PC in the house?

Skype with a Mac

Skype with a Mac.. I'm thinking of starting to use Skype, but there's one thing holding me back. What wireless USB phones are compatible with the Mac, and where can I get them in the UK?

SkypeOut quality problems

SkypeOut. Just took a credit for 10 $, but the sound quality is markedly worse than the skype-to-skype calls, and also worse than the normal phone. Also, there seems to be a delay in the conversation, which makes it useless for, say, business calls. Any ideas how to remedy this? Or will we have to wait for Skype 0.2? [more inside]
