I use a Plantronics Discovery 975 headset with my Fascinate. This (really excellent) headset supports the Headset Profile (HSP), and the Hands-free Profile (HFP). It works fine for calls (annoying screen-lock bugs notwithstanding), and a long-press on the headset activates the Nuance Voice Commands app (which also works pretty well for dialing contacts, etc).
Now I'm looking for a means to use this headset for a wider range of audio/voice functions on the Fascinate, but apparently the phone is programmed to reserve what I want for devices that support the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)... I want to:
Does anyone know if the pending Froyo update offers more flexible bluetooth profile usage? Anyone know of a hack to redirect all audio functions to a headset or hands-free bluetooth profile/device?
thanks for the informative, if unsatisfying, reply .
I guess i'll hope that someone at Samsung/Verizon feels the same way and has spiffed up the bluetooth functionality for the 2.2 release - the last smartphone I had would stream all audio to this handsfree headset. I'm not positive on the accuracy, but I saw an FAQ on a Samsung site that claims the SCH-i500 supports some pretty exotic bluetooth profiles. From what you're saying, this would all be a Samsung/Vzw addition to native android.
I'll not hold my breath...
