Default Sprint 8830 Stereo Bluetooth Compatible???

Please Login to Remove!

I have a pair of Sonly Wireless Bluetooth headphones. When it pairs the first time they hook up and connect great but after that whenever they synch they no longer work for music just connects as a hands free phone. If I pair them to my buddies Verizon 8830 they connect correct everytime.

I think I have the newest version of software, or is there a newer version. It is just a pain in the rear having to delete it and reinstall it everytime on the 8830. Any ideas?


Applications: 4.2.2.123
Software Platform: 3.0.0.64

No ill effects at all. An 8830 is an 8830.

Because you're installing an OS from a different vendor, you need to delete the vendor.xml file from your computer before you connect the blackberry.

Search for that file on your hard drive and delete it.

Then connect the blackberry and it should prompt you to upgrade the handheld OS.
