How to direct all sound output to BlueTooth headset not just phone?

Using the Nokia BH 118 Bluetooth headset (single ear piece) with the Z10 and for all phone work/use it is excellent but there it stops. Is there a way to get all sound output to the Bluetooth ear piece by configuring the Z10? By this I mean I can listen to music which would be interrupted by a phone call and then revert back to music at the end of the call . . .


All help appreciated. Thanks

your hed set might not support the BT protocol for music streaming which is different than voice


Does it support Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)?


My BlackBerry HS 700 does play music, video and GPS turns and will pause when getting a call.
