Hello all.
The Card Phone does indeed work wit other Headsets using a 2.5 mm plug.
I tested one from Plantronics, which came with a 2.5mm plug installed,
and several adaptors from this plug to different phones.
The set works perfectly with the Card Phone,
and I guess there is a sort of standard for phones with these 2.5mm
Have a nice weekend.
