I am thinking of gettign the Nokia 3710.

One of the things I want to do with the 3710 is listen to podcasts with a Bluetooth Headset.

I know I only get to listen thru one ear with a blue tooth headset, thats OK

Have you ever used a bluetooth headset to listen to Podcasts.

Is it easy to do..

What headset would you reccomend.. I dont need to talk into it as I am a texter only.. (mostly)

Any advice on this subject is appreciated..

Advice - get some stereo bluetooth headphones. They work really well, and the biggest issue you will find with a mono / single ear setup for listening to podcasts is that your other ear will pick up all the other distractions around you ... as opposed to having both your ears "muffled" by ear plugs / headphones.

In terms of single earpieces - I love the Sennheiser VMX100 ... very, very nice earpiece AND loud enough...

If I could squeeze it into the budget, I would definitely upgrade from earplugs to bluetooth stereo headphones.

The other thing to consider is how the unit is powered ... if you have spare usb ports and the headphones charge via a standard USB cable you can utilise your USB ports / USB power pack to recharge ...
