Bluetoothed Borg — how to share one headset with two devices

So, if you were here at Churbuck Central this morning, you’d be giving me grief for being a geek with not one of those mark-of-a-loser wireless headsets stuck in one ear … but two — stereo headsets, one in the left and one in the right.

The one in the left talks to the BlackBerry phone. It is a BlueAnt Z9 and I like it because it goes in my ear, not over it, like the Motorola H700 on my right ear which talks to my X61 Tablet and Skype and rests on top of my ear.

The BlueAnt is great for noisy situations. The Motorola … I’ve had it for sometime.

So why two? Well, I can’t figure out how to easily divide one head set between two apps — cell phone and Skype. Any suggestions?

  1. Pretty sure this is device (headset) dependent. I had a Plantronics headset (the 510) that had “multi-point” tech (not sure if that’s an industry term, or Plantronics). In any event, it let me pair the headset to my cell phone and my ThinkPad simultaneously. I currently use a Motorola headset, and have not been able to do the same – pretty sure it can’t pair with more than one device at a time.
