    music stops playing when phone locks

    Advertisement



    Hello,

    I just installed a microSD card and loaded some music on my pearl. When I try using the default music player, the music plays fine but stops once the phone locks (~30sec). Is there a good way around this so the music will keep playing even after the phone locks?

    I've spent a little bit of time looking in the forum, but couldn't find anything about this.

    Thanks!

    When I lock the phone (either by pushing the assigned button on the side or locking through the home screen), the music stops playing.

    Perhaps there is a setting with the media player or lock that I need to play with?

    I also have a pearl

    Tabasco, do you have content protection or password enabled with your device. Just a hunch, but if you do disable it for a moment and then try to lock the phone with music playing


    Ok I couldn't stand not knowing. Basically if you content protection enabled, the player stops. However if you have the phone pw protected only it will still play on lock

    I am just curious to hear back from Tabasco to see if that is his issue.

    icancn2u,

    I did indeed have content protection enabled. After I disabled it, the music worked while locking the phone. Thanks a ton! It would probably have taken me hours to figure that out.

    Tabasco, glad we figured it out.
    I noticed some other issues when I enabled it before, the caller id did not always recognize my contacts and a few other small things I can't remember.

    That's funny since my phone also didn't always realize my contacts. Perhaps that will also be fixed by disabling content protection.

    Thanks again!
