    I haven’t been able to find a BT headset that felt comfortable with my glasses and have given up using headsets (hence, no calls while driving or when my hands are busy, boo). In searching for reviews of this speakerphone, since I’ve gotten a new phone that’s compatible, I came across this contest – PERFECT!
