Well thats what I am looking for, I dont like the stereo one, over kill IMHO, not keen on BT due to battery drain so I am looking for as stated in the subject line, with the additional cavet I would like the answer button facility provided on the stereo unit provided with the phone.

I got a $6 single ear piece from of all places "The Base" Warehouse in hamilton that works (Wish I had bought several now) but it only has a volume control and no answer switch. It works well but I have to leave the phone on answer auto after x rings, if not I might as well not use the headset as I have to get the phone off my belt to press the answer button.

Why do I use the headset extensively, I am an IT field engineer and more often than not my hands are occupied when I get a call.

Any advice greatly appreciated on known sources, hopefully not costing mega bucks.

most 2.5 ml plugged headsets will fit your apache but you also have to option of bluetooth completely wireless and so simple to use works within ten metres of your handset cost from $129.95.

The treo replacement one looks good and not mega bucks, now to find a nearby supplier who will let me test it.
