We respond to these requests directly but more often than not, this Q & A would be helpful for lots of other folks.
Below are your VoIP questions answered – Real questions from real people just like you.
Q: I have a Polycom VVX600 phone. Will this headset [Jabra Motion Office] work with that phone? Is there something available that would signal people that I am on the phone when I am talking on the headset – perhaps an optional light or something?
A: The Jabra Motion Office is a versatile wireless headset that promises to be “the only headset you’ll ever need.”
It’s designed to be the one headset you take with you everywhere to work hands free no matter if you’re making calls from your desk phone, VoIP softphone on your computer or laptop, cell phone, or tablet.
And in the words of the Jabra Motion datasheet, this headset “is designed to work with Bluetooth mobile phones. It can also work with other Bluetooth devices that are compliant with Bluetooth version 1.1 or higher and support a headset and /or hands-free profile.”
The good looking Polycom VVX600 Business Media Phone has integrated Bluetooth 2.1 so, Yes, the Jabra Motion Office is a great headset for this phone and you’ll get extra use out of it with your other devices which is good if you work from home or on the road.

Lastly, to answer the second part of your question: “Is there something available that would signal people that I am on the phone when I am talking on the headset – perhaps an optional light or something?”
You’re in luck.
The Jabra Motion Office comes with a busylight indicator on the unit that will help you avoid interruptions, especially in a hectic office or one that has a more open working environment.
The Jabra busylight turns red when you’re on a call providing a clear signal that tells people not to bother you.
