    2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter prob.

    Advertisement



    I bought a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter from Radioshack. When I try using it on my pearl it doesn't work at all. It seems like it doesn't go in all the way but when I plug in my headset that came with my blackberry and I sit it in a little bit but not all the way and it still worked. I tryed the adapter on my other phone and it worked fine. What's wrong??

    It has to be the 2.5mm plug with 4 contacts, try www.sedionline.com

    I have that too it is a piece of crap! It doesn't stay in the jack unless i hold it and it looks so stupid because it come out of the side. I bought one from Seido but can't find it so i just use the body glove headphones from bestbuy.

    the headset that came with my pearl only has three and so does the adapter. So I don't get why it doesn't work. It worked fine on my other phone that uses a headset with a mic just like the pearl, so I don't know. Help!

    I am sure it needs four, L+R, mic and earth, The pearl still gets messed up though you have to Pause the music, unplug the adaptor then plug it back in then play the music again. Its a pain.!!

    as long as the headphones or adaptor has 4 contacts it should be ok.

    I'm not positive but I've heard that you have to plug the headphones (or other audio connection) into the adapter first. Then plug the adapter into the phone. And it is supposedly made just for the blackberry pearl?
