Default 7100g, jabra 250, Mute?

Please Login to Remove!

With the 7100g using a jabra 250 bluetooth headset, is there a way to enter mute?

I had the headset on in the car yesterday while on a conference call. I went to get gas and wanted to mute the call. There is nothing on the headset, and I pressed QW on the phone and I didn't get the mute symbol displaying on the screen.

It would be nice to be able to do it from the headset, but at this time I'd be happy to be able to do it from the BB.

Also, and I'm not totally sure about this since I tried it while driving, but it seemed like QW didn't mute the phone when I had a regular, wired, headset plugged in.

If the headset is paired to take advantage of advanced functions, then you can simply push the answer/hang up button on the headset and hold until you hear the beep and then release. The call is then muted. Just repeat to unmute the call.

Minister:

I don't understand what you mean by ADVANCED FUNCTIONS. I don't see that option under Bluetooth settings, so where would I find it? When I tap the answer/hang up button, it disconnects, there is a beep and the handset immediate shows a disconnect

Some phones have a "handsfree" profile that adds additional features when using a headset, such as last number redial and others. Even with the advanced features I do not see "muting" listed as an advanced feature with the Jabra 250.

Edited to add:

In options...bluetooth, on the 7100g, the Jabra 250 device properties says it support handsfree and headset services. There is a different pairing method that is used with the Jabra 250, for example, to activate enhanced / advanced feautures.

To pair the BT250 with advanced functions, hold the "Volume Up" and the multi-function button on the BT250 down at the same time until the light is solid on. Then initiate the pairing from the Blackberry. When it is paired you will have the advanced features.

• Last number redial (when not on a call)
While the headset is on, press and hold until you hear 2 short beeps,
release immediately.
• Rejecting an incoming call (when not on a call)
When your phone rings, press and hold until you hear 2 short beeps,
release immediately.
• Call-waiting (swapping between 2 calls)
When your phone notifies you of another incoming call while you’re on a call,
press and hold until you hear 2 short beeps, release immediately.
• Putting a call on hold
While you’re on a call, press and hold until you hear 2 short beeps, release
immediately. Repeat to retrieve the call.

No mute, but you can hold.
