Default Earbud/Handsfree operation

Please Login to Remove!

Have never been a big fan of them but tried to use the standard issue earbud. Is there a setting of any sort that i have to change to use it? If not, does it automatically work when plugged in>?

Before or during a call just plug the ear bud in and your set.

I must have a defective one then. The one that came with the BB is the stock issue. When i plug it in, highlight a persons name(with a Direct Connect number) and click the little button on the cord and nothing happens...Isnt that the direct connect button?

Actually, DC and PTT require the button on the device. The button on the ear bud is for picking up and ending voice calls.

How do you highlight a name without touching the blackberry? it would be cool if there was a trackwheel on the handsfree earbud, but mine didn't come with one..

If you have to touch the blackberry to highlight a name, why not just click while you have your hand on the berry, then use the earbud button to end the call?

My earbud works as finch described..

The earbud will also mute if you press that button quickly while in a call, then hold it to hang up.
