Hi, I have the same problem with the wired headset, and it has been very frustrating trying to resolve the issue. I will double check to make sure I have the FOUR connection headset.

I will continue to work on this, so please keep me posted if you find out anything, and I will do the same.

You aren't the only one not using BluetoothSmile

I just tried to use the wired one on Tuesday and I got this strange continuos noise. I tried 3 different ones...it was the FIRST time I had tried the wired one..my bluetooth works fine...this phone is crap if its one thing it is another. I find more and more the longer I use it...I it is only 4 months old...I want my NOKIA back!!!
