    mini-USB headsets - how come they don't work?

    Advertisement



    So I have this fairly nice mini-USB headset that came from a new Moto W490. I plugged it into my Curve, but it doesn't recognize it at all. Why is that?

    Are there any mini-USB headsets for the Curve? I really dislike BT headsets and find that wired ones are just easier for me to use.

    TIA.

    edit:

    I should mention that my "craigslist" Curve didn't come with the OEM stereo headset. BTW, is that worth buying online somewhere? How does it compare to say, iPod earbuds?

    The mic is not connected to the usb what so ever on the curve or any other BB. You have to use the headphone jack.

    I was messing around today with my sister's Iphone headset and it works great with the Curve 8300, the microphone works, you can push the mic button to pick up a call, push to mute, and hold to hang up, it's awesome!

    that's actually kinda sic about the iphone earbuds. was wondering about that. i think the bb oem earbuds are a little funny looking. looks like i have some weird brouche or something dangling on my headphones.

    anyway, do you know if this would work on the pearl? i don't see why it wouldn't....
