Has anyone found an app that will turn off the phones speaker when you turn on the bluetooth.? It would be nice so that the people around you will not hear the ringtone or other announcements of incoming calls or messages.
Thanks

That sounds odd--if you're using a Bluetooth headset for a call, then the external speaker should automatically deactivate anyway. Notification tones should come through the Bluetooth headset. Is that not happening?

I have had intermittent issues with that for a while. The firmware update helped a lot, but I still have issues when using an A2DP BT set. Non-A2DP sets seem to work fine.

Yes the phone call come only through the bluetooth but all the notices come through both.
What non a2dp bluetooth worked but does it still announce to the bluetooth ?
Thanks

I don't have mine set to announce so I don't know about that. the headset I use now was free with the purchase o my wife's BT visor unit and that only cost $20! So this is a VERY cheap BT headset. It works and the $100 Jawbone I bought (one of four different expensive sets that don't work) doesn't. go figure...
