    Hi,

    Since we all know the 2G can now use microphones as well.I wanted to ask whether other(non apple) 3.5mm headphone mics will work. I remember a topic about someone plugging in a speakers and it blew up the ipod, i want to make sure something crazy like this doesnt happen. I also dont feel like buying the ones at apple since i can just grab one off a friend.

    BTW has anyone used skype recently, i used it for the first time, i downloaded 4.0 beta and i can make calls free to mobiles and homephones. Is this normal? I know skype to skype is free but i thought everything else cost money.

    I just tried a generic 3.5mm headset last night from Verizon Wireless and used it for a fring test call (since none of my contacts were online) and it seemed to work fine.

    I thought skype costed money for anything other than skype to skype calls.

    I've been using a headphone cable that come with my BlackBerry, it has a mic and volume & play/pause controls. They all work fine.

    if anyone wants my blackberry headset you can have it, its from my curve so it's 3.5 mil.
    i think its ugly so you can use it, it has a mic and one button, which i would assume works like the iphone's with the 3 clicks for FF or w/e it is lol
