Motorola Razor Cell Phone

Does Anyone Have A Motorola "razor" Hooked Up To Their Bike?
I Have An 03 K1200lt.
Will This Phone Work On My Comm System? The Phone Has An Usb Type Connection. Is There An Adapter Avialable?
I Want To Find Out Before I Activate My New Phone. I Will Trade In For A Different At&t Phone If A More Compatable Phone Is Available.

Any Help Would Be Appreciated!!!!!

What you're looking for is a bluetooth device called HF820,
I found mine on E-bay (I liked it so much I bought another one for the truck) they're around $25.

You don't need to plug into the phone, keep it in your pocket,
just plug the HF820 into your comm system.

I use my Motorola 'Razor' on my LT all the time via the built in Blue Tooth capability. I use one of the HF 820 speaker dodad connected to a small booster (because I wear ear plugs and need more volume) which are both in my tank box. The phone wire from my AutoCom is plugged into the booster - which is plugged into the HF 820. Works very well. I set my phone to auto-answer when the Blue Tooth is activated so I just keep my phone in my pocket. The phone setup was suggested by our local club gadget guru - Farkle Furgason.

The only real downside is if I get a call I don't want (and I get a lot) I am either stuck hearing it or I must press the button on the HF 820 to hang it up. AND, if you forget to turn the HF 820 off and you remain within an active range of the HF 820 - it will continue to answer and you will not know about it until later when you see the number of calls you received - but never knew about.

You might want to get more than one. They are very handy and for the money - worth every dime.

So....do you hear the Razor ring in your headset when set to auto answer?

Thanks,
I don't on my SLVR. Suddenly there is just voices in my head. It is very disturbing.

Thanks,
The music and GMRS cut way back and I hear a connection being made so I know I have a call. Do I hear a ring? No, but there is enough 'notice' that I do not hear a voice.......

I Have Done Some Looking At The Websites You Provided.
My Question: I Cannot Find The Hf820. However I Have Found The Hf800.
Is This Simply A Newer Version Of The 820. Or Should I Get The 820 Specifically?
Does It Come With A Connection To The Bike?
Thanks.

If you do a search for HF820 on Ebay.com, you should find at least 90 different listings.
