Question about Nokia BNIB NOKIA 3500 Classic Unlocked/Sim Free BLACK/RED UK Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Headset is not recognised by Nokia 3500

My phone, a Nokia 3500, does not give any indication when I connect my headset to it. Thus, when I play music, it is played through the loudspeaker and even in the music player, the option to hear through the headset (which only appears when the headset is connected) is not there. Naturally I am a bit worried since I bought the phone 3 months ago.

I have a guess that once or twice when I put the charger in the socket first and then connected it to my phone, by mistake I put it in the headset port. But as soon as I saw it was at the wrong port, I put it in the right place and the phone began charging. My fear is that due to the possibility the headset port came in contact with electricity that my headphones do not work.

Lastly, is there any other place in my phone where I can do something about headset settings, other than going to
Menu-> Settings -> Enhancements-> Headset?

I would like to get some advice on what to do. Do I have to buy a new headset or will the current one get back to normal if I do something?

    But how did it break? And by headset connector, do you mean the port of the phone or the headset?

Unable to listen music in Nokia BH 108


Hi! The Nokia BH 108 headset does not have the A2DP function (advanced audio distribution profile). However, if you are using NOKIA (symbian) non-windows phone, you can play music since the phone bypass the said restriction. You may want to try other bluetooth headsets that has A2DP function so you can enjoy the musics from your headset.
Thanks.

Headphone symbol on normal mode


I have a similar problem on my phone, which is that when I insert my headset, it does not recognise it. And thus the music is played through the loudspeaker. And if it is recognised (luckily), then after I take it out, I see that the headset sign is still there. The only solution I have had is to turn the phone off and switch it on again. The sign should go away by then.
OR:this is the problem of jack where from you insert the headset pin,
change the jack your problem issolved.

Unable to use new h500 headset


The H500 is a monaural headset, thus good for phone calls only, not for listening to stereo music. You haven't specified which Motorola phone you own. Check in its user guide if it is able to handle stereo bluetooth headsets (i.e. if it bears the A2DP and AVRCP bluetooth profiles), which are suitable for music streams. If your phone is able to handle them, go to the mall (or store, or even online), buy one set which suits you better, pair them with your phone and enjoy!

I loose BT connection after one song


Does the motorola headset make decending tones when it disconnects? If it does, you are listening to your music using the Headset bluetooth profile rather than the High quality audio one. You will need to change the way the device is paired to the phone. Try pairing it as bluetooth headphones or bluetooth high quality audio, rather than a bluetooth headset. Once you have done that, you can pair it as a bluetooth headset too, as the motorola headset connects to 2 bluetooth devices, or in this case, one device, with two profiles. To use the headset profile, press the left M symbol once, and the headset will play a sound to indicate connection as a headset. If you press it again, it will revert to High Quality Audio profile, and you can listen to your music, and even skip/pause it!
