    Default Notifications Play Through Device and Bluetooth

    When I am on Bluetooth, does not matter which bluetooth device (A2DP), the Note 2 plays notifications through the device speaker and across the bluetooth. Why does it do this and how do I correct this? When on Bluetooth, the phone should not play any sound through the device speaker.

    Thanks....

    I've noticed this on this device and on my GS3 before this. I've not seen any solution.

    Disable media audio in the bluetooth setting for the headset you have paired.

    Turning off BT media defeats the purpose of a2dp.

    Not the easiest solution, but using the app "Tasker", you could have your phone automatically set to silent mode when your bluetooth device connects and then silent mode turned off when the bluetooth device disconnects.

    Install an app named SoundAbout and un-check the "Notifications to speaker" setting.

    I would second the Tasker idea although I like that my phone notifies on both.

    Woodslink, thanks for the recommendation of SoundAbout. It's solved my need to get all notification sounds routed to my bluetooth headset. Keeps my co-workers from being annoyed every time I get a message without my having to resort to vibrate only. Thank you!
