Notifications through earphones

Hi folks, This is my first post, so please be gentle...

I am a recent BlackBerry (8320) convert and so far, I am loving it.

 

Is there a way to play the ringtones and notifications through the earphones?

I notice that when I'm listening to music and a call comes in, the music is stopped but the phone rings through the speaker.

I suppose I could use the vibrate profile, but if my phone is in my bag I probably won't feel it...

 

Thanks,

Craig

Re: Notifications through earphones

I use a Jabra BT620S stero headphons with my 8300, and use my "standard" (for me) setting, with soft audible notifications for arriving messages, phone calls, and calendar events (both in-holster and out-of-holster), and vibrations only for in-holster events.  I have no problem receiving notifications through the headphones.

 

You may want to double check your Profile to make sure you have the notification to "tone" or "vibrate+tone"

Thanks for the reply.

I'm using the standard wired earphones that came with my phone.

It must be different for Bluetooth ones...

 

Thanks,

Craig

Re: Notifications through earphones

I used wired earphones when I first got my 8300 (about a year ago) and had the same experience.  I don't think it is a Bluetooth issue.  Did you check your notification settings?

Repeat Notification: LED Flashing

Number of Vibrations: 1

-----

In Holster: Vibrate+Tone

Ring Tone: Ringer_BBpro_2 

Volume: Medium

Repeat Notification: LED Flashing

Number of Vibrations: 1

-----

Do Not Disturb: No

 

 

Thanks,

Craig

Re: Notifications through earphones

I'm stumped .... sorry!  Seems like your notification setup is without flaw.

Thanks anyway.

I'll give you kudos for trying...

 

Maybe the BlackBerry folk have an answer...?
