iPad 3G + Unlimited 3G $30/month + Fring + (Google Voice / Gizmo5) basically means unlimited internet and unlimited voice service over iPad for $30/month. There, I said it. And while the microphone and built-in speaker for iPad work sufficiently for this route, lets face it: a bluetooth headset of sorts would be much better to get the whole thing up and running as it should be.
I have a Sony DR-BT100CX Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headset that I'd like to pair with the iPad to use the Microphone and Call Answer button with in Fring. As of right now, I can pair it with the iPad for listening to music, but neither of the aforementioned functions work (along with skip forward/skip back functionality, but I can live with that for now).
Is there any chance, once the iPad is jailbroken in the coming days, that custom support can be added for bluetooth devices that aren't having their signals processed properly (i.e. aren't properly supported by Apple)? Perhaps remapping keys on the headset to perform different functions on the iPad? If this sort of thing could be done, it'd blow the device wide open.

Yeah but if you're calling another person on the opposite side Of the line don't that person also need fring? It'll be nice though if you talk to your wife or husband only but having to call your job or get apple support to call you back ,fring is not a choice for it

Like I said, the only problem with this is the lack of bluetooth headset compatibility.
