Have you considered getting a bluetooth headunit for your vehicle? My wife has one in her truck and my next vehicle will definitely have one. Just makes cell phones more convenient in a vehicle and you don't have to wear anything in your ear.

I have a company truck, and it has 175K miles on it, to give you an idea of how much BEFORE Bluetooth it was purchased... LOL

My personal vehicle has had it for a few years, but I haven't used it. My personal time is for me, not for my cell phone.

Thanks for the advice those that MEANT to help...

It's only a matter of time here in Texas before you will not be able to text or talk on a cell phone if your in a car.

They just passed a law making it illegal in school zones. ... more to come

So I've tried several and these work great for my..

Motorola MOTOROKR S9-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Amazon.com: Motorola MotoROKR S9-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headset: Cell Phones & Service

It is w/o a cord and works well w/o echo and on my iPhone - I listen to music & movies in stereo.

Went through all this ka-ka a few months ago. Oregon's "no talking
while driving " law went into effect Jan 1, and for once I was ahead
of the curve.

I work in noisy places, and drive noisy trucks on occasion. My choices
boiled down to:

Plantronics Voyager. Noise canceling technology, great battery life,
a little large and didn't go really well with wearing glasses at the same
time.

and

Aliph Jawbone Prime. Got one of these cut little puppies. Noise
canceling works GREAT--I can carry on a conversation standing next to
industrial equipment.

Battery life is OK---it goes a couple of days between charges. Has an
annoying delay before it hooks up on incoming calls, but I'm getting used
to it.

It comes with 6 different eargels and 2 different loops. Tried them all, even
tried some Plantronics eargels with it---None of them held it securely for
more than a couple of hours. It has this little button on the backside that
presses against my fat cheek, eventually it would cam it out of my ear.

Fixed that with a custom molded earpiece from Custom Molded Earpieces from AverySound.com

Now I LIKE my Jawbone---comfy to wear most of the day.
