Razr V3, headset and custom ringtone

So I thought I get myself a bluetooth headset:

I know: headset’s are really stupid.
This one is the least stupid one I ever saw.
It’s pretty much original size in this image.
Weighs less than 10 grams.
Decent Battery life, although the Razr drains it’s battery faster.
Audio quality is ok, so I hear. I don’t talk to myself.
Have not tried it with skype yet.
Usability is great: 1 button.
1 led.
That’s enough to do voice dial, switch between calls etc etc.

Then I read that you can use any mp3 as a ringtone.
It works as long you don’t have a bluetooth headset.
Yepp, that is right:
If you have a headset then you can only use the standard
ringtones. Somebody gotta explain that one to me.
Motorola, not really known for being smart …

    and, the phone makes a loud noise when it rings.

    you’d think the whole point of a headet is “in your ear” privacy.

    and, what’s the point of “handsfree” if you have to grab your phone to look at the caller id, since it won’t play the custom ringtones you match to you phone book?

    That’s so stupid I can hardly imagine. Did you ever find a workaround? Do other custom ringtone formats (AMR, QCP, MIDI, whatever) work with the headset?

    The problem it’s that the V3 doesn’t support A2DP, This profile allow to send high quality audio through bluetooth. You can listen AMR in the media player in your headset but not the ringtone.
