Default Bluetooth alerts on 8800

My wife has the Sprint 8800we and is wanting to be able to hear the phone ring, sms & email alerts, etc through her Bluetooth headset. Is this possible?

I know that is it possible for the rings to be heard only on the headset. Set your BB to silent ring, and it will ring in your BT headset.

Bluetooth and Phone integration are dependent on the Bluetooth Profiles that your Bluetooth headset is equipped with. So you are at the mercy of the headset.

It is rare (and I don't know of any) to have a Bluetooth headset handle the Email and SMS alert properly.
