Default 8800 not stereo?

Please Login to Remove!

The 8800 is supposed to play back audio in stereo correct? My Left channel ain't producing... I'd hate to have to return it for that... anyone experience a dead channel on audio playback?

It plays stereo for wired headsets. Not on Bluetooth headsets. If it's not working on your wired headset then there is a problem. Try rebooting the device and making sure the headset is plugged in completely.

Are you using the OEM headphone that comes with the phone?

Not yet. I have an adapter I got for my treo that I plug my E3's into... I'll try the one that came with the phone tonite.

May be that the "ring" spacings are different on this phone than the treo - causing it to not align properly. You'd think there's be a standard for mini-jack's for mobile phones...

The only adapters that work are from

Seidioonline.com

Most of the others won't work with the BB's.

Just ordered a set for my wife and I. Ordered the adapter with built in microphone. Thanks for the suggestion JC.

Default bluetooth support for stereo

Was I dreaming or did I read somewhere that Verizon will be releasing an update that will allow stereo bluetooth support?

Is this possible or this hardware dependant?

Talking

Got the adapter from Seidio. Plugged it into my 8830. Plugged my JVC noice cancelling headphones into the adapter. And listening to Jay-J in stereo right on the ol bb. Wow. Sounds very good. As good as my son's iPod or my old Creative MP3 player.

Thanks for the link JC. You da man.
