Earlier today, I had a discussion with with someone in California who was perplexed about the iPhone not being certified for hands free operation as required by the laws of California. I misunderstood and thought that they just did not know about Bluetooth headsets. It appears that, for California requirements, standard bluetooth headsets do not satisfy the needs of their law. I just checked the website (BlueAnt Wireless North America - Bluetooth hands free, car kits and mobile communication devices for the USA) of my Blue Ant bluetooth headset to see if there might be any new products that may address that concern for the folks in California. Blue Ant does have a new voice activated bluetooth headset--the V-1. They have a short (about 3 minutes) video to show how it operates. Apparently, you activate the voice activation by pressing a button prior to when an incoming phone call comes in, then in order to answer it, you raise your voice above the background noise and say "Answer" and you are connected with your caller. I don't know for sure, but this may be a solution for California iPhone users who want to comply with their state's hands free law.
