Default BB Pearl Bluetooth and A2DP

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I just bought a Motorola Bluetooth HT820 Stereo headset and am trying to use it to listen to music stored on my pearl. Does anyone know if the Pearl has A2DP support? If not how can I get it? Anyone know if any updates are planned? Thanks Kris

The pearl does NOT support A2DP profiles at the moment. I cannot find the thread, but there were rumblings about a software update in the future that would support this. Until then, there were 2 methods that have been posted here to work around this. The first, if you start playing music, then switch apps to your internet browser. Find a phone number to dial off of a website. As soon as the call connects, end the call, and you will have music through your headset. Downside to this is that in my experience, if you have autolock on, the music will stop when the lock, locks your phone. The second method would be to buy a bluetooth headset adapter. Pair your headset with the adapter and then plug the adapter into the pearls headset jack. This will automatically send all music through the adapter.
