Default Various ringing w/earphones questions

Please Login to Remove!


I have a Blackberry Pearl from Rogers.

I've got a few questions about ringing:

1) When I'm listening to an MP3 with earphones, the ringing is always extremely loud. I'm listening to a pimsleur program, so perhaps it rings loudly because I'm listening to voice, not music. Anyhow... how do I decrease this ring volume when earphones are being used?

2) also, I think that sometimes it rings only in the earphones and not out loud. So if my earphones are plugged in and it is lying on the table, I won't hear it ringing. But sometimes it does ring "externally". How do I make it ring "externally" all of the time?

any help appreciated, thanks.

Default Same Problem

I also had the same problem in my Pearl. I cant hear my phone ringing if the earphone is plugged in. I have a wired earphone and when plugged in the phone rings in the earpice but not out loud.
I tried calling the Blackberry help in Tmobile but they said there is nothing they can do.
Any ideas?
