One of the features I like(d) best about the Curve is the 3.5mm headphones jack. Before I got it, I figured I could simultaneously 1.) use an FM transmitter for media player audio to my car speakers and 2.) use a bluetooth headset for calls. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work as expected.
My headset (a Motorola HS850) doesn't work for calls when an FM transmitter is plugged into the headphones jack. With a transmitter plugged in, the curve still recognizes the HS850 as the audio in and out interface for calls (instead of the speakerphone or "handset"). When I make or receive a call with something in the jack, it seems that the curve "hands off" audio in/out to the device - my headset makes the familiar beep that tells me that it's active, and I hear a faint hiss. But no audio comes through or goes out. Switching between audio interface options (from the HS850 to speakerphone and back, say) doesn't fix the problem. Unplugging the transmitter does.
It's a shame, because the media player automatic pause/play works like a charm - if the audio handoff to the bluetooth headset worked properly, I'd have a great car phone setup.
Does anyone else have this problem? Any ideas on how I might get around it? Do you think it's specific to my transmitter? Or my headset? Or maybe my OS version (v188.8.131.52 [Platform 184.108.40.206])? It'll be tough for me to try out a new transmitter or headset, so hopefully it's something else.
Thanks in advance for any input!
