i haven't seen a headset that worked for more then one phone-company yet.
Oh, except for the bluetooth things.....    But i also needed always 
headsets for just hearing music.

So please take 3.5mm. so i can just take every normal speaker, headset, 
etc. that lies near by me.
and with the 3.5mm i could use the phone like every other mp3 player in 
the world.

And every audio system i know has a connector for a walkman input.... 
but what was the other thing? ....
I don't think i have ever heared of it until now.  but this is maybe 
because i always bought the false 
phones  here in germany.

i have never seen / used a 2.5mm connector in my life.
(oh thats not true.... i have seen one on wikipedia [1]  2 minutes ago. ;) )
