Headsets

On July 1, 2008, California state law SB1613, which bans motorists from talking on a cell phone while driving without a hands-free device, went into effect.   SB1613 imposes fines unless the driver uses a headset, earpiece or other technology (i.e. Bluetooth) that frees both hands. 

Telephone Services has hands-free wired earpieces in stock for most Lab issued cellular phones. To request an earpiece, send email to tsc@lbl.gov with your cellular phone number, vendor name (AT&T or Verizon), phone model and project ID.

If you require a Bluetooth headset, Telephone Services can order one for you.  Email your request to tsc@lbl.gov and include the Bluetooth model, your cellular phone number, vendor name (AT&T or Verizon), phone model and project ID.  Approval from your supervisor or division management is required to purchase a Bluetooth headset.

Prices for Bluetooth headsets vary. Visit the links below to compare the different models:
