Im able to listen to all my notifications through my Motorola s9-HD with a HTC Thunderbolt and I was able to do it as well with my old Motorola Droid. That includes twitter, email, gmail, text and calls sometimes it gets annoying specially while listen to music since the notifications plays along the music and no app required.
It depends on the BT stack and what BT headset you are using.
For example for the life of me the D3 with the Jawbone Era it never does it, but the one for the Command One does. The HTC Sensation it works with the Era, but not with the Command One.
Morning Tidbits i would like to go bluetoothe for my music listning an notifications! as well but i'm on the fence what to go with an i have read were some of the jawbones BT's are having issues but i guess like any thing Trial & Error you have to do it your self to see if works for ya. Or it goes back to the store. for something els. But i'm gonna get something as i hate Cords. B33
Well, darn, I thought it had to do with a shortcoming in the Android. I had both Jawbone Icon and Era as well as a Plantronics Pro Plus (using the Icon at the moment) and none of them ring or notify through the headset.
Is there "alternate BT stacks" available? This is an area I'm not familiar with.
Thanx for the replies,
geri o....i really know nothing about BT stacks, but it is my understanding that they are different from one rom to another. so i believe there are ways to get alternative BT stacks.....just not sure what the differences are or if there are any roms that include ALL of the stacks? honestly.....i'm not even sure if what i just said even makes sense...lol.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
This is a nice read for you to get a ideal of how bluetooth stack works and the number of differences that there is when dealing with communication with OS and hardware.
Also I just realized that I had a way to make it clear its not the phone but it appears to be more of the ear piece compatibility, my Samsung Bluetooth doesn't receive message alerts but my Jabra Handfree http://www.jabra.com/sites/mobile/na-us/products/pages/jabracruiser.aspx transmit all alert through it without issues..
