View Full Version : Listening to mp3s on Bluetooth Headset with SE P990i?

Hi Guys,

I have a SE P990i and Motorola H500 bluetooth, works fine for making calls.

I want to listen to Mp3s / Music using my BLUETOOTH HEADSET, I know the battery life is only 6hrs or so but I charge every night and I do not like the wires for the ordinary headphones.

When I follow the instructions in the P990i manual I go to the Media Player in my phone and go to SETTINGS > TRANSFER SOUND it only displays SPEAKER (which is the phone speaker) or HANDSFREE if the wired handsfree headphones are connected. It never displays the H500 bluetooth even if connected??

Is this a shortcoming with the P990i, the H500 headset or have I got the settings wrong? Will getting a different bluetooth help?

please help!


P.S. Also I am on the Three 3 Network in Australia, anyone know how to set this P990i up with Internet? I managed to get email to work using the M600i settings but Internet is harder, also the phone freezes half the time when I go to web browser is that normal?

any help anyone? I really want to listen to mp3s via bluetooth headset from the P990i how do I set my P990i to do this?

Using transfer sound in media player only shows the phone speaker or handsfree as options, Is this a limitation with my P990i or the particular H500 bluetooth headset? Will changing the bluetooth mean that when I go to the transfer sound option in my P990i the bluetooth device will then be listed?

I just can say that it works flawlessly with SE hbh ds970 bt stereo headset...

Check if your headset is in multipoint mode, or not, maybe that will help

Also, you headset HAS to support stereo blutooth a2dp profile, a common bt headset won´t do

I also have HBH DS970 and it works perfectly-ish.
There is a slight glitch which happens sometimes in thatthe phone forgets about the headset but is still actually connected.

If this happens I turn off headset, then phone, then start phone, then headset. Then it works every time.

When working [i.e., normally] you don't have to transfer sound; it goes to the headset if it is there.

So, you may have a problem with compatibility to your headset.
Go get the DS970. You can use that with Bluetooth dongles on computers to listen to that and your phone.
