Problem activating headset
Have owned my Pearl for a while now, but only just popped on some mp3's for a wee listen.
Plugged in headphones that were originally supplied with device, and sound comes out of phone ear piece still, and not the headset.
Have tried 'activating handset' & 'activating speakerphone' options on bb menu when playing files, to see if that does anything, but sound still just comes out of phone ear piece.
Any ideas? Only thing I can think of is a dodgy headset unless I'm missing something else I need to switch on?
No, the phone should recognize when you have a headset plugged in. I would try a new headset and if it still doesn't work, you've probably got a software issue with the device or a hardware issue and the phone does not recognize the headset no matter what.
