need of a "convenience key"-like feature for the audio jack

This should be a very simple OS patch for the RIM programmers. When the 3.5mm audio output is connected, it would be extremely handy to have something like a "convenience key" feature. To be more precise:

-in Option, Screen/Keyboard, please make a section like "when in audio output, opens:" so one can choose an app, like an MP3 player or anything else

- and another option "when in audio output, connects:" so one can ENABLE bluetooth  (and not Set Up bluetooth which is useless) automatically. The bberry will automatically pair with a preset device, like the bluetooth system of a car.

 

I hope this will be available in future OS or in a quick patch, and I'm sure many other will appreciate such features.

Since RIM personnel do not regularly review all the post here, and this forum is not really a "suggestion box", may I suggest to you:

Re: need of a "convenience key"-like feature for the audio jack

thanks for the hint with the email address, but I don't see why not make suggestions in a forum. It may be useless, but not inappropriate.

Sure.

 

I don't think anyone (at least I didn't) state it was inappropriate.

 

But at least you do see it is useless. And, I didn't say that either. :smileywink:

Re: need of a "convenience key"-like feature for the audio jack

you said this forum is not a suggestion box, which means, in your opinion, that my post is ill placed, which is equivalent with saying that is inappropriate. And I didn't say that is useless, but rather that it MAY be useless.

Anyway, answer to the post if you wish, or just forget about it.
