I agree - a year ago I didn't use bluetooth, but today I use it for both
handsfree and data connectivity.  Which leads to my number one beef with
Bluetooth as implemented on all phones I'm familiar with - single-device
limitations.  If my bluetooth handsfree is turned on, I can't use the
data connection, and vice-versa.  What would be really helpful would be
a bluetooth implementation that would support at least two simultaneous
connections.  (at least to different device types/profiles - two
handsfrees might even be useful sometimes, but the data.vs.headset issue
is quite an irritant)  However I don't know if this is a limitation in
the silicon or the bluetooth stack...
