8300 (curve) wired hands free with ordinary head phones

Tip: You can use ordinary head phones with your curves head phone jack and then speak into the mic directly.  This means that if your listening to your favorite tunes with some hifi headphones and a call comes in just answer and speak into the mic.  You don't need the fancy BB hands free with the mic on the cord.


Just discovered this with my ipod head phones which are more comfortable.


Bonus: People see you taking into your phone and know your busy rather than just start talking to you right away.  plus better sound quality.

thanks for the tip, I'll try that and tell you if it works on my 8310.
