    .... but I've had my Nokia 6230 for about a month now, and I've only just
    worked out how to properly wear the headset that comes with it.

    At first, I just wore it like a normal pair of headphones, and I was a bit
    confused by the fact that the microphone hung somewhere about on a level
    with my navel, which didn't really seem to be the right place for it, also
    the whole thing felt unwieldy, and kept catching on things when moving
    around.

    Anyway, I worked out that if I put it over my head, so that the little
    plastic spacer was at the back of my neck, the microphone was then at the
    top of my chest, and it just seemed to feel a lot more comfortable. The
    spacer takes the weight of the microphone and stops it pulling the 'phones
    out. All together much better.

    Anyway, just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else hadn't caught on
    yet...

    Cheers,

    ChrisM.

    btw, in my defence, although I've had the phone for a week, I've only tried
    wearing the headset a few times... (OK, poor excuse.)

    lol Advanced Engineer indeed - But as they say "it's normally a simple mind
    to sort out simple solutions" ;-)

    I don't think the OP is an advanced engineer, I think that it's just a
    quote.

    --- TOFU snipped! ---

    Because the phone needs the cable of the headset as antenna!

    It must be possible to adapt a pop-port connector so that it just has a
    little wire sticking out that works as an aerial. Having done that, I don't
    know if it is possible to use a bluetooth headset to play radio over. (Don't
    know if the quality would be good? - its a lot easier to compress voice than
    music)

    MP3 music plays horrible over the HDW-2 headset...
