I see you've tried the Plantronics 645 - that's their top-of-the-line, right? With DSP to provide noise cancellation? How does it compare to the Scala 500 (which is what I'm currently using)?

Upgraded to 4.1, which was much slower than previous OS (3.8), until I started using the various features, then it speeded up. Maybe an issue of loading stuff into faster portion of memory?
