Plantronics CalistoPro is my new favorite thing!

If you are a telecomuter or have a home-based business then the Plantronics CalistoPro will make your day. It is a wireless bluetooth headset and a cordless 1.9 GHz frequency phone all in one. You can even pair the same headset with your bluetooth cell phone, so it is a multi-purposed device. If you use Outlook for organizing your contacts you can download up to 100 contacts directly from a USB cable into the CalistoPro phone. You can wander with the phone at your home or office up to 300 ft. which is the length of a football field. It really does work! Of course if you don’t have the little phone clipped to your belt or with you in some form or fashion, then you can only go about 30 ft. with your headset since bluetooth technology is short range. If you want the full football field range you have to bring the mini-phone with you, which isn’t a problem because it’s only the size of a deck of cards (or even thinner). The only drawback to the CalistoPro is that it is earhook design only. It is pretty comfortable but if you prefer a headband over the top of the head you’re out of luck. There’s no headband for it, even if you wanted to pay extra. You can buy it at Founders Telecom by clicking on the link.

The CalistoPro plugs right into a standard analog phone jack at the wall (such as you’d have at home). If you have a PBX office phone system where you have to dial a 9 to dial out, this will not work as you would have digital instead of analog lines. The Avaya (or Lucent, AT&T) Partner phone series is the only exception. You can plug the Calisto Pro right into the AUX (auxiliary) port on the bottom of the phone and you have a great solution.
