Support for Bluetooth headsets is the real innovation here. Though BlackBerry devices have packed in phones for years, holding them up to your head has always felt and looked awkward. Because the 7290 paired easily with our Logitech and Nokia Bluetooth headsets, that's now much less of an issue. Unfortunately, the 7290 doesn't support voice dialing, so you'll still have to pull out your BlackBerry in order to dial. There's also no support for the Bluetooth dial-up modem profile and no Bluetooth file transfer. Phone calls are clear, although there's no speakerphone.
The 7920 does not have a speakerphone.

How do I use the loud speaker on a Blackberry pearl?


Hi there

Although the Blackberry pearl does not come with a speakerphone, you can still set up this function by using a Bluetooth device.

HERE IS WHAT YOU SHOULD DO

Power on your Blackberry using the On/Off button in the lower right-hand corner of the device

Turn on Bluetooth

Find the Bluetooth option. In the main menu, select "device options."

Enable Bluetooth radio. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see the option "Enable Bluetooth". Select this function (click the trackwheel) to turn on Bluetooth compatibility. If you have completed this step correctly, you will now see a "Bluetooth icon" on your Blackberry screen. If you want, you can later turn off Bluetooth by repeating Steps 1 to 3 and then selecting "disable Bluetooth".

Pair your Blackberry with a Bluetooth speakerphone

Power on your Bluetooth speakerphone device using its On/Off switch or button.

Find the Bluetooth option in the main menu by again selecting "device options" and then using the trackwheel to scroll down until you see Bluetooth. Select this by clicking the trackwheel.

Add your Bluetooth device. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see "Add Device." Then click on the trackwheel to select this function.

Enter the name and passkey of your Bluetooth device. When prompted, scroll down with the track wheel until you see the name of your Bluetooth device. Your Blackberry automatically detect your Bluetooth speakerphone if it is within 10 meters. If it does not, enter the name of the device, then type in the passkey provided by the manufacturer of the speakerphone.

Enter the passkey on your Bluetooth speakerphone. Your Blackberry and Bluetooth speakerphone can now communicate with one another.


To use the speaker during a call all you need to do is;

Dial a number and hit the send key. Make sure that your Bluetooth speakerphone is on, and that you have already set your Blackberry to "Enable Bluetooth." If you see the "Bluetooth icon" you have already done this step.

Activate your Bluetooth device. When the call has connected, click on the trackwheel until you see the option "Bluetooth Device". Then click on the trackwheel to activate the Bluetooth function. Your Blackberry will now route your call to the Bluetooth Speakerphone.

Turn on the speakerphone. Depending on which Bluetooth Speakerphone you have purchased, you may need to click on the "speakerphone" button to enable this function. Once the speakerphone is on, you may continue with your phone call.

My call waiting feature is not available on my phone and cant seem to find out where this feature is... called my provider and the feature is available on my service


If someone calls in while you are on the phone, you should just be able to click "answer." To switch back, push the trackball in and click on "flash" in the menu that appears.

Blackberry bold 9000 speakerphone doesn't work!


Guys- I have had the same problem with my speaker not working and it comes down to the spacing inside the phone. Some people have resolved the problem by placing a small piece of paper or credit card between the phone or the battery back. I actually took the back cover off, the battery off, and then unscrewed the 6 tiny screws to take the back of the phone off. You'll then see two small pins that act as spacers to keep the phone back off of the speaker and you can gently bend them upward a bit more and this totally worked for me. I noticed after I was using a leather pouch to hold the phone, the only way to take it out was the pinch the phone on that area, and was thus "smooshing" these pins down and not giving the speaker the appropriate spacing. You'll void your warranty by doing so - but you should be able to fix the problem.

Speakerphone does not work


Try pressing the Feature button and dialing the digit 1. This will turn the microphone on and the MIC lite should turn red. Don't lift the handset or press Speaker, just press Feature 1. This will also turn the MIC off if you want it disabled again.
