Many (CHEAP!) handsets are important for me - with my hearing, they're 
more remote ringers than anything else. Cheaper than real standalone 

I've tried bluetooth on the cell, and will use it if driven, but I 
find a normal corded headset better / more comfortable. Besides, 
batteries get low, just pick up another handset and swap the headset - 
no futzing with bluetooth.

Just wish darn 'backup' corded base stations would come with headset 
jacks, for Pete's (or anybody else's) sake.
