Blackberry 3.5mm connectors

Do all of the Blackberry versions that have 3.5mm audio/voice headset connectors use the same "pinout" or signal assignment? Does anyone know the differences between the iPhone pinouts and Blackberry 3.5mm pinouts?

No, not all BlackBerrys have 3.5mm connectors. Only the newer devices have them. The 3.5mm connectors are standard connectors. Nothing special.

Re: Blackberry 3.5mm connectors

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it, but I'm afraid it does not address my question.

 

I'm aware that Blackberry comes with 2.5mm and 3.5mm audio/voice jacks.

 

The question is: is the pinout, meaning signal assignment for tip, ring1, ring2 and sleeve, the same on all of the blackberry 3.5mm connectors.

Re: Blackberry 3.5mm connectors

jsaggio, as far as I know, all 3.5mm BlackBerries use the same signaling for the port.  All standard 3.5mm plugs will work with these.  There is always the chance that certain units have additional signaling capabilities for future services, but to date, they all support standard plugs equally.

There are two models of iPhone : the iPhone 1 has a 3.5mm pinout but it is burried in a tiny hole so that regular pin can't get into it. you have to buy an Apple product (10$) to be ble to use your favorite earplug.
the iPhone 2 (aka iPhone 3G) has a regular 3.5mm that can be used with any earplug.
