Default MP3s through Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

How can I play MP3 audio from my 8820 through my plantronics headset? Even with my bluetooth headset active the playback goes through the speaker.



Thank you!

For music, I believe, you need headphones with a specific protocol. Not every BT headset will play back music. Also, be aware that you canNOT generally hear the audio portion of a video file using a BT headset, even one that does work for music.

This is accurate. When you pair the BT device to the BlackBerry you will not be able to playback music (mono or stereo) if the only service available is "Handsfree".

This has not been my experience in the least. Motorola S9, Plantronics Voyager 855 and the newest JayBird all work in stereo without issue.
