Default Bluetooth headsets and dongles - need recommendations

Thinking of using VOIP - and Bluetooth seems the only practical way to
go - in that you can walk around and make a coffee while chatting - just
as if it was an ordinary phone.


Are all dongles equal? Or are some to be preferred?
And what about Bluetooth headsets?
Any preferred makes or models?

Use an ATA then use any cordless phone. Ideally DECT.

OK - thanks. Does this need to be a different phone from the one I use
with POTS? And any recommendations for an ATA?

You can do it over bluetooth, however this is not the best way!

As others have said, an ATA and any dect phone will do you great.

You can also look at getting a wireless router and a wifi VoIP fone like the ones from utstarcom - http://ukvoiptalk.com/reviews/showpr...oduct/18/cat/4

I've used the f1000 which i wasn't too impressed with, but the f3000 has had some good reviews!

If you end up getting a wireless router go for one with QoS.
