This article applies to the following:


  • BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8100 smartphone with BlackBerry® Device Software 4.2.1
  • BlackBerry® Curve™ 8300 smartphone with BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2
  • BlackBerry® 8830 World Edition smartphone with BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2
  • BlackBerry® 8800 smartphone with BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1
  • SDR136277





Audio path routing allows an application to redirect audio to supported output components (e.g. speakers, wired headset, Bluetooth® headset) that are used with the BlackBerry smartphone. An application can leverage this functionality using the AudioPathControl class. See this article for an example of how to use the AudioPathControl class.



A delay occurs in the audio file that is being played when streaming it to a Bluetooth headset. (e.g. the first one or two words of the file are cut off).



Insert three seconds of blank audio to the beginning of the audio file.

This is a previously reported issue that has been escalated internally to our development team. No resolution time frame is currently available.
