Default BB Bold headphones"I can not hear the ring tone when I get a call"

Please Login to Remove!

I am a BB Bold user and with the original headphones (that comes out of the box) I can not get the ring tone when I receive a call. I can listen to music or talk with it but I can not hear the ring tone when I get a call.

What may be the problem, does anyone knows ?

Thanks...

As far as I know, it doesnt do it.
i.e. its not a problem, its just not meant to ring in the headphones.

I listen to music all the time with my headphones. It will always ring through the external speakers. This makes no since to me either. But the music will turn off when the phone rings. It's a bad design I know because I have complained many times about it to RIM.

Yes you can understand only when the music pauses itself for a while during receiving a call but this is really unbelievable !! But, with the bluetooth headphones I hear a signal sound when I receive a call which I think it comes as a default tone of the bluetooth headphones.

@kontrolkalemi

Yeah I'm not sure why they do that... I know the tone you hear is a function of the Bluetooth headset. I use a Bluetooth car stereo and same thing I have 5 ringers to chose from. But even still my phone will ring and the stereo will also ring. Quite annoying.. Just pipe the ring tones to the Bluetooth audio gateway. Same if you have the head phones plugged in just send it to the speaker system that is currently in use.

I know warning tones are piped through the headphones and alarms, calendar alerts etc cause they drive me nuts when listening to music.. but ring tones nope...
