I've never used one of these multipoint headsets so see the reply 
above. I imagine it may also be possible with some headsets that you 
need to click a button to confirm that you want to take the call.

Does the music pause while you're on the call? Again this would be 
implementation dependent (implementation of the headset) but should 
work as these a2dp headsets support AVRCP too (Audio/Video Remote 
Control Profile).

With that said, I'm not sure whether the N800's a2dp implementation 
implements/supports AVRCP so it may not pause the music. Anyone noticed?
