Message alerts while listening to music

I used to have a Bold 9700. When I listened to music with headphones, incoming message alerts would sound over the music through the headphones. With the 9650, the song pauses, and then the message alert sound comes out of the speaker instead of the headphones, then the music resumes. Is there a setting I am missing here?

Re: Message alerts while listening to music

Different devices can respond differently depending on the specific OS version.  As far as I'm aware, there is no setting to change this. 

 

Sorry there isn't more info to provide.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Message alerts while listening to music

I'm not sure what you're asking here. Are you trying to stop these random alerts all together or are you just wondering how to get them to come through the headset?

I'm trying to get them to sound through the headset, like it did on my 9700.

Re: Message alerts while listening to music

As I stated, there is no way to do this short of using a different OS on the device.  If you're with Verizon, note that they just released a new OS version.  I'm not sure if this will change the notification method, but it may.  You can try updating the OS to see how it works out for you.

Oh well. I updated the OS last night over the air and have the same behavior. I wish each OS version had a changelog available.

Re: Message alerts while listening to music

This is an annoying issue. I had a Bold 9000 and never had this problem. I have the latest OS from verizon for the Bold 9650..and audio alerts from different apps continue to hang/pause music streams regardless of where the music comes from (Pandora or the muisc player that comes with the phone). I can't believe this wouldn't categorized as a bug of some sort. Is there an update with this.

Re: Message alerts while listening to music

I did find in the crackberry forum that  CDMA devices don't have the capablity to stream simultaneous audio feeds like non-CDMA devices..

 

Oh well..still seems like a silly shortcoming.

Re: Message alerts while listening to music

Hi!

You can only change the SMS alerts on an JB iPhone.
