Are you aware of any micro-USB -> 3.5mm adapter on the market? :
Yes, you can use that on VE66 or you can use bluetooth hedphones - like MOTOROKR S9.

For music lovers, I would suggest the EM35...which runs practically the exact same software as VE66, only the outer design and cam are different.
EM35 offers 3.5mm plug and some US$115 less than VE66 where I live.
To be honest, if VE66 offers 3.5mm plug like my Zn5, I would probably have gotten one already.
ahmed, 26 Mar 2009ok what about the sound quality through the USB headset?
like 3.5 one or better?Connector type doesn't affect the sound quality.
Biggest advantage of 3,5mm jack is that you can easily change the stock headset with something much better in quality, like - Creative, Steel Series, Sennheiser or JVC. Also, using the 3,5mm is more practical and comfortable to insert and pull out, than doing the same thing with an USB connector.

ahmed, 26 Mar 2009What about the head set? is it 2.5mm or 3.5 mm?I think there is no jack (2,5 or 3,5mm) output on VE66.
The headset is connected using USB port :( .
What about battery life, guys?
How much VE66 least with medium and heavy use?
810mAh is a little small (minimum) capacity for a multimedia phone ...

So far the version 1 already impressed me, my friends & relatives so the version 2 should be even better .
If you've time to test out the 4 different settings in the future, it'll be interesting to see the effects on background noises. So far in my country, there's no indication on any new upcoming Motorola models that have Crystaltalk 2 (or Plus). You're luckier over there with wider choices and of course, with the variety of Moto phones you have collected, makes comparisons much easy. I'm happy for you friend.
Stuart, 16 Mar 2009Have you read this article before about Crystaltalk Plus (I presume it's Crystaltalk 2)?

Bright, Crisp, Clear, Normal.
I haven't tried different setting yet, I can certainly bet even at "normal" mode, the voice quality beats most other brands' offerings.

1)My wife agrees she will use the phone.
2)Additional discount be available through my network service provider.
Not that I don't think it's worth US$300, rather the fact I already bought 17 Moto phones in the past 15 months...feeling quite (if not extremely) guilty.
And if Moto put a 3.5mm jack to VE66, I wouldn't mind to pay as much as US$50 more (like Zn5)
