Does anyone have the handset from a factory MB phone? All this talk about removing them got me thinking. I have a motorola startac S6965B hands free kit in my car.
The S6965 has the option for a passive handset, but so far I have passed, just for asthetic reasons. I dont want to just strap a handset somewhere. However I was thinking, how hard could it be to gut the MB handset, and just use it's casing with the motorola components.
From what I have determined, the Motorola handset simply has a open / closed switch, i.e. is the handset in the cradle, or out, a microphone, and a speaker. I may even be able to rewire the OEM handset to work with the Motorola kit, although Im skeptical of that. Im sure the OEM handset has a n open / closed switch, so it should be a matter of swapping out the microphone and speaker in the MB handset, and then wiring it up to work with the Motorola Kit. They use RJ-45 connectors on both handsets, so it should be easy to cross over the pins.
If someone is willing to part with a handset for cheap, I'd certainly be willing to try it. I understand that in my C Class, the handset mounts in the lower of the two compartments in the arm rest. Which would be out of the way, except when needed, and would provide an OEM look.

Best Wishes and take care,
George Androulakis

I have a complete euro spec OEM MB C-class phone, but in Europe they were mounted on a separate console against the dash...I don't know if I can help you with any parts from this set...but if I can, let me know.
