How to adapt land line wired headset phone to bluetooth headset?

I have a Motorola Bluetooth wireless headset which I really like with my cellphone. But I'd like to also use it with my land line, which has a wired headset, detachable. In searching the net, haven't found what exists, if anything, that I can plug into the land line headset slot and adapt it for Bluetooth so I can use my wireless headset with it. Any ideas?

The Plantronics L-510 does this with its included base-station. It also allows you to pair with both the base-station and a cell-phone at the same time. (most other bluetooth headsets will only pair with one device and have to be reset to work with another)

... including the Motorola headsets. The good reverend is correct; this will be a huge pain since you'll have to reset and re-pair the phone every time you switch between cell and land phones. Not worth it, IMO.

Gah. "...reset and re-pair the headset every time..."

All the BT adapters I know about work with non-Bluetooth cell phones (with 2.5mm jacks) - wired landline headset jacks are usually 3.5mm. You might try Hello Direct - they might have something up their sleeve.
