Playing Music through 3.5 MM Jack



I used to have a Blackberry Curve 8900 and I could plugin a 3.5 MM stereo cable into the headset jack and play all music through BB and Pandora into my cars aux input which would output to my car speakers.


With my Blackberry Bold 9700, I've tried pluggin in the same cable into my car stereo and activating the handset, but it plays nothing. No sound whatsoever comes out of the speakers.


I've read online on some forums that some people say that some BB's don't allow this or that they don't have enough power to do this.



Can a BB rep clear this up? I NEED my music. It's crucial.


Thanks for the help!

Re: Playing Music through 3.5 MM Jack

I just tried my 9700 with OS and it works fine in my Honda Odyssey with the aux input.  I didn't try Pandora as I don't have it installed anymore.
