Brand-specific Headset Jacks--Nokia

by portdevoix    Oct 25, 2003, 5:06 PM

Will anyone tell me why Nokia has THREE types of headset jacks out there? And why isn't it THE RULE to have phones equipped with a STANDARD 2.5 mm mini jack, instead of all these propietary headset jacks? I have sensitive ears, and it's become a royal pain, trying to find a headset that will fit both my ears and my otherwise perfectly serviceable 6610. When I used Sprint, all three phones I owned had standard mini jacks, and it was easy and relatively inexpensive to find a headset that didn't hurt my ear. Now, I think I have only three headsets to choose from, and I'll be damned if I spend $20-30 on a headset that won't allow me to talk comfortably on the road for hours at a time...
