I think the internal antenna is enough even in Iran ;)

The problem with experience is that for some (unknown to me) reasons
many people talk about how good it would be to use a bt headset for
GSM talks but too few seem to actually try it. And it's supported for
more than 2 months in FSO already iirc.

Headset can be used to hear to the music or to use headset mic to
record voice notes or for whatever (you might want to utilize headset
button in some creative way). Some people report that in some
conditions buzz is not too much even with a headset so sometimes it's
possible to use it for GSM.

And no FR version that is in shops atm prevents buzz from the headset
mic anyway.

Ok, i hope others will tell you their experience with him.

FR has a standard mini-usb receptable.

Be free, use free ( software!
