8800 headphone issues

Once I surrendered to the fact that my Blackberry 8800 ( tmobile ) would not allow me to use my s9 stereo bluetooth headphones >sigh<  I purchased a pair of "Body Glove" wired stereo headphones that had the correct size adapter.


I listen to my music almost all day and prefer to rarely touch the phone itself, using the headphones most of the day and a Bluetooth ( S500 ) earpiece in the evening.


For the second time ( second phone) the headset connection has failed. It seems that after about a month of use, first the headset crackles when pluged in but minor "wiggling" will make it work; although it may need to be plugged and unplugged a few time a day. This degrades over the day(s) to popping and humming and intermittent failures that become so irritating I just quit using the Blackberry as an Mp3 player.


This truly stinks becauase one of the main reasons I chose the 8800 was to be able to listen to my music while I work and not miss a phone call.


Anyone else have this problem?

Re: 8800 headphone issues

I went through three headsets before I got it to work.

I bought a Radio shack adapter. It sounds funny, but it was a little thicker the 3.5 standard, there was no wiggle in it,

which was my problem as well. Try it.
