Is this something a dev could fix or is it too deep?
THIS IS SO AGGRAVATING? I am seriously considering returning this phone just because of this issue!!!
[Q] headphone jack is hijacking my bluetooth - xda-developers
I have posted in numerous forums and talked to devs on IRC and not hopeful of non Samsung fix and not sure how much hope for Samsung fix.
quote from PM I sent to xda-dev site:
"I bought a Fascinate last week and was stunned to discover that if you plug into headphone jack to connect to car stereo (or whatever), Bluetooth headset does NOT function with phone. The phone stream is sent to headphone jack. This apparently is a Fascinate issue only, the Vibrant behaves properly, I have a friend that has one.
I am leaning towards returning this phone before my 30 days are up. I drive big truck for up to 11 hours a day using phone (previously Droid) to listen to audiobooks and when it rings, I should not have to unplug it to use my BT headset with it.
If someone at Samsung would acknowledge this as a bug (design flaw really) that is fixable and going to be fixed, I may consider keeping it."
We are not alone, but I wish a lot more people would complain about this RIDICULOUS design flaw.
