    One alternative to BT in your car.

    jlevy63, I'm sure everyone is aware of this but just in case... If your vehicle is equipped with an auxillary jack inside(on the dash next to the radio or somewhere on your console)all you need to bypass BT is a stereo cord with a plug on both ends. You plug in your phone and set the stereo to auxillary, then you can listen to all your own music thru your car stereo like personal files loaded on your microSD or Pandora or Slacker etc. Then while listening if a call comes in you simply hit the send>headset and say "Hello?" they will hear you and their voice will come thru your stereo speakers. When youre done you hit end and the music picks up where you left off. I've been doing this for 2 years now. If your car does not have an auxillary outlet in it, there is a very simple solution for this as well but will cost a one time fee of around $40-$100 depending on your budget. I'm in Az so don't have laws to contend with(at least not that I'm aware of?...oopsy!) But for you and any other state, this is a great way to beat the handsfree issues, not to mention it's just plain safer and smart! I think the reason it's not used more in their marketing strategy is because they want people to continue to buy BT? But no other phone, or most other phones don't have the ability to do this due to something RIM built into the BB unit allowing some sort of delay in the microphone so as that the person talking to you does not hear their own voice as feedback thru your phones mic. I'm sure you all know what enables this, and I'm sure some, if not most, knew all this already, but if this topic is possibly new to some folks, I would appreciate it if you would move this to it's own thread? I can't think of a better way to help folks out than to enable them the ability to save their own life or someone elses, by not having to drive while talking into their cell? And even if this only reaches just one individual, and helps to keep him and everyone else safe on the road, then that is a prime example of what this forum is all about, no? Again, if this is an obvious and apparent topic, then by all means let it die out. But in my short time on these forums in the last few months, I have not seen this discussed at all. Not to say I am aware of all topics. So yeah, I'm done now. Hope it helps.

    For WA, a cell phone to the ear is a secondary offense....so if all else is fine, you most likely won't get pulled over.

    Texting while driving is not good, especially on a touch screen, my friend

    Then I'm moving to Arizona lol. Great write up and definitely something that I will post somewhere. What might be obvious to some may be new, and as you say, life saving to others. The main reason I use a BT is because of my business. I do a lot of traveling especially to NYC. And my BT of choice is the jawbone because I can walking down Time Square with taxi cabs honking and the person on the other end thinks I am in a nice quiet office. I do have an aux jack in my car but unfortunately the problem is when I am sitting in my office and can't hear crap because of the BT bug inherint with SFI from 148. I can't tell you how many years I have not held a phone up to my ear and it's something I will never do again. For the car your suggestion is a great one. thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    In CA it's a guaranteed ticket. And you get points off your driving record.

    Texting while driving is already against the law in CA. They are considering passing a law that will not allow motorists to even touch their phone will driving. So programs like Vlingo could make a killing.

    I agree with you 100%...but then cannot make eating illegal...cause what if for example someone has diabetes and their blood sugar falls low??? Then they would be liable.

    I agree but there should be exceptions like having a doctors note stating the person has diabetes. I am talking about the person snarfing down a Big Mac driving down the highway at 80mph.

    I noticed late yesterday that Verizon's d/l page now has the 4.7.0.148 available to d/l and edit away. I know its the same as the leaked version, but still for those who think its different or are running into OTA issues they can now d/l without issues.

    There's actually a significant "push" ongoing in NJ to ban the use of cell phones completely (wireless or otherwise) while operating a motor vehicle. I doubt it will gather sufficient support to become law but the problem is pretty serious. It's particularly bad among the younger new drivers who insist on texting while they drive.
