    Talking Cell Phones

    I assume you use a cell phone!! I don't know if you've heard, but starting Jan 1, 2003 you will no longer be able to use a cell phone while driving unless you have a"hands free" adapter. I went to Future Shop and they wanted $50 for a headset with a boom microphone for my cell phone. I have come up with an alternative, walking through Office Depot. These kits are compatible with any mobile phone and one size fits all. I paid $0.24 each because I bought in quantity, and I'm selling them for $2.00 each. I tried them out on Erickson, Motorola, & Nokia phones and they worked perfectly. A photo is attached. Take a look and let me know if you want one.

    come to think of it...it looks like it may have already been patented by Ludelvr??

    i'm not sure if he's coming out with a new junkyard phone accessories line or not...

    guess i wont work w/ my LG

    i dont know how ppl can post stupid auction like that.. ebay charges 2.5% commiission.. and either they take it out of your credit card ( that u use to register) or they can take legal action against you.. and you cant register for ebay w/o a valid credit card..

    I have 3 hands free kits from various phones I've had. You can get a decent universal one for less than $50. I'm still waiting for them to come out with the hardwired kit for the LG.

    how about a big velcro strap..it's reusable and washable and it easly fits in your pocket or purse or even on your roof when you are not using it. And if you act now you will get and extra one for that special someone in your life.

    How much you ask? you say $5.00...not even..you can have one for only 3 payments of $0.75 plus $4.00 ship/hand.

    Question

    this may be a dumb question but.... what would hooking your phone up to your stereo accomplish? Hear the phone through the car speakers? (Just wondering)

    It's just like using a speaker phone REdOX.

    Oh yeah, I bought the Plantronics ear piece for my LG. It works really good and has never given me any problems. It's about 50 bucks but I guess 50 bucks put to good use cause it comes in handy a lot when I'm driving.

    Theres a handsfree set, that you can use as a Speaker Phone through a Radio Channel, pretty cool idea!, probably sounds like shit though!:p
