         No, it isn't just your particular combination, mine does 
worse -- every time I replace the AAA battery in my headset, I have 
to re-sync (or whatever it's called).  Sometime the operation is 
quick, and sometimes it takes 10 or 15 minutes to get it all going 
again.  I finally gave up -- my headset is in a drawer somewhere.

         One thing, though -- I bet if they would market a Bluetooth 
headset that looks like that thing Uhura wore in the original Star 
Trek series, they'd sell like hotcakes!
