Using Bluetooth headset with clamshell phones closed

I am planning to get a Bluetooth enabled clamshell style phone -- most likely from Motorola. If I have the phone turned on and closed, can I use the Bluetooth head set to make voice command calls without opening the cell phone? Like wise, can the Bluetooth head set pick up an incoming call with its one touch button without opening the phone? Not sure anyone have experience on this. Thanks.

X70 - V600 - Z600

Does anyone have current information as to when the Panasonic X70 will be available in the US and through which carrier? I'm anxiously awaiting a flip phone with camera and bluetooth and like everything I see about this phone. The Motorola V600 and SE Z600 are also very tempting, but I think the price tag will be a bit higher.

If anyone has fairly accurate information about any of these phones please post or send it to me.

Thank you

Verizon CTO Speaks Out

Really fascinating comments from the Verizon Wireless CTO:

http://www.wirelessweek.com/index.asp?layout=documen ... »

MMS interoperability is a no-brainer if you ask me, but it's great to hear Verizon talking about it. I know from past conversations with Sprint officials that they have the same outlook, and ditto for T-Mobile and the other GSM carriers. Hopefully it won't be long now... Cool

But the really fascinating comment was about time-to-market for new phones. Here's the Verizon top tech exec admitting that it takes way too long to get new CDMA phones to market, and pointing the finger at their own carrier customization demands. Shocked

Analysts and manufacturers ha...

Multi-Network Phones

Does anyone know what phones are available in the US that support both GSM and TDMA?

Cingular is telling me that there are only 2 in existense. One or both of them are Nokia phones.

Can this be true? OR are they just trying to steer me into going with the phones they sell?

I've heard a variety of opinions on why one phone/device has better reception than another. I realize that terrain and weather conditions has a lot to do with it. Over and above those two areas that obviously alters reception, would someone, anyone who might be truly knowledgeable about this subject, please enlighten me. If it's the price of the device, what in particular (that's inside) gives that device better reception capabilities than another? Thanking you in advance.
