Re: Torch and Beats by Dre headphones



I am using the Beats by Dre in-ear headphones with control talk! I can listen to my music but when I make a phone call the phone keeps switching back and forth from the headset to the regular speaker. The piss-off is that the same headphone work on the blackberry bold 9700!


I also have the apple in-ear headphones the ones you buy on-line and am facing the same problem on the 9800 and not on the 9700!



If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!
