Music app and Phone calls
I did some searches and haven't found this asked.
I have loaded my music on the phone and now listen to it all day at work (with headphones). Well, when I receive a phone call, I unplug the headphones and answer the call. After the call is over, I hang up. The music then resumes playing my heavy metal loud through the speaker and disturbs everyone around me. I scramble to get back to the music player and pause it to plug my headphones back in.
The music player will pause the music when a call is received but resumes when it is hung up. Why won't it stay paused? Of course, I can't pause it before the call because the call screen pops up when I receive a call.
I have another music player (Meridian) but I can't find a shuffle option and that is one of the main features I use.

I would get some earbuds with a mic so you can answer your phone and go to listening without sisterhood g everyone.
I would also try answering the phone with your current headphones. The Michael on the Droid seems to pickup sounds good.

MikeB, I have a solution for you. Buy a set of headphones/phone headset for the blackberry. I use my old set from my BB 8330. They allow you to listen to music, press the button on the headphones to answer a phone call. When the call is done, another press of the button hangs up, then unpauses the music. They are of high quility, and are pretty cheap. Hope this solves your problem.

I think that this is by design that it mutes the active phone. I have a problem, is there a way to dis-associate the stock "music' app from the headset button? I have installed bunches of podcast apps and headset "fix" utilities. The problem is that you can only either kill the button entirely or use it to control another music app. However, that blasted built-in music app continues to take actions from the headset button. What gives? I like the buttons, they work well, just need to loose the stupid built-in app.
