Forgive the laziness, and low points, but does anyone know if you can use the Moto HS820 headest with a PC (bluetooth enabled, of course)? The application of use would be for chatting/skype etc...

Also does anyone know of a good phone management software (aside from the proprietary T-Mobile one) for managing contacts, calendar etc. I have the Moto V360 (great phone, BTW!!)

Unless theres something about the headset that makes it a non-standard BT device, that can't work with a PC, yes.. you can.  

Visit your local comptuer shop, or look on ebay, for a "USB Bluetooth Dongle".  This device gives your PC bluetooth capabilities.  Once you've got that plugged in, and set up, you can "pair" the BT headset with the PC.  Your PC will now have a second microphone and speaker device.  Set your software (e.g. Skype) to use the BT headset, and you're done.
