Which Nexus is it? My Galaxy Nexus does not have this issue. Neither did my Droid X nor my HTC Eris. Now, I realize some phones default the audio to the headphone port even if bluetooth is connected, but also have an option to choose outputs. This option is grayed out on the SGSIII with Verizon for some reason, and it's horribly annoying, and a bit unsafe. I really hope they issue a fix. The AT&T version does not seem to have this issue, if you watch the video above.
International S3. Was initially O2 branded but I flashed unbranded firmware via Odin.

Mine was the Verizon Gnex.

Not sure why that's happening then. I thought it was standard for the phone, but I agree, it's very annoying! Hope a fix/workaround can be found.

Does anyone use the phone with a Bluetooth stereo and headset at the same time? If that works seamlessly, I.e. pauses the music when a call comes in and resumes on hangup, I might just buy a Bluetooth stereo.

This. New audio decks (like ones on Crutchfield) all come with Bluetooth capability. So you don't have to run a cable from the Aux on the phone to the stereo.

I would assume if you're streaming music (like Google Music or Pandora) via Bluetooth to the deck and a call comes in on your bluetooth earpiece, the music would stop and you could answer the phone.

But I would like to know if anyone else has experience with this.

New stereos are pretty cheap with this capability, like in the $120-150 range.

My bluetooth earpiece connect as phone device and A2DP (?). On my Incredible I could turn off the A2DP part and just use the phone part but I can't find the setting for that on the S3. Can this not be done?

Well, word from the Samsung support guy on Facebook, as others have said, is that when the AUX cable is plugged in, Bluetooth audio is dead, dead dead, and that's just the way it is. However, supposedly, the phone can sync to both the car Hands_Free, and an A2DP adapter that I can plug into the car's AUX jack, and they'll play nicely together. I ordered an A2DP (couldn't find one locally) and we'll see. If it works, I'm keeping the phone; if not, it's going back. I was considering going with A2DP anyway just for convenience. Marginally better sound quality isn't a huge deal for 57-year-old ears listening to non-music podcasts. Still... it's an annoyance.

Default The Evo 4G LTE doesn't have this issue.

I went to the Sprint store and told the guys I wanted to return my GS3 and pic up the Evo, they said why would you want to do that, as though the Evo was a piece of junk (I swear they are getting paid to push the GS3). When I told them the problem, they said no Android phone can switch off headphones for the Bluetooth, and that the iPhone 4s had an option to do it. I told them my original Evo could. They said it must be ICS. Anyway, we took the GS3 and an Evo LTE out to my car. The GS3 obviously didn't work. Then we hooked up the Evo and had Pandora playing, it switched over flawlessly (it has the same options as the iPhone 4s). I exchanged the GS3 for the Evo. I should have stuck with the Evo in the first place, I loved my Evo 4g.

Add me to the list. Just tested myself with a cable and no audio can be heard through bluetooth *OR* aux cable during a call, so this is just a really bad bug rather than an intentional design.

I use an A2DP adapter most of the time, but occasionally find myself in other vehicles where I use the line out directly and won't have the bluetooth a2dp adapter or the infuse dock with the line out from the USB.

Default Big Issue with Bluetooth and a 3.5mm Stereo Cable

On my Droid X, I could have my stereo cable connected and still use Bluetooth for calls. It switched to Bluetooth when I made a call.

With the darned Galaxy S3, it seems that the stereo cable takes priority because the phone thinks you have Samsung's earbuds plugged in, and it won't use the Bluetooth unless I unplug the cable! And obviously my stereo cable has no mike on it. This is ridiculous. Not only can I not make calls unless I unplug, I can't use voice navigation (which I always use to set my destination!) because the moment you plug in the cable, the phone mike turns off. I yelled at my phone for 5 minutes before I figured this out.

I don't know if this is something Tasker could possibly help with...I doubt it. It seems you can buy a 3.5mm cable with a mike in it, but what a waste of my Bluetooth lol...

Aggravating. The design philosophy differences between USA-based Motorola and urban international Samsung are becoming apparent. No decent car dock (and Google's car home isn't even installed!) and no way to trigger car mode with a magnet like on the Motorola phones... I'm an American. I drive everywhere! Grrrr...

Count me in as outraged. I already made my own post because I hadn't seen this one. This was dead simple functionality with my Droid X. I just wrote a message to Sammy support on FB too, and I'm calling Verizon tomorrow.

This is just a ridiculous issue, especially since two year old phones can switch to Bluetooth for phone calls.

I was pretty pissed off about this issue and then I came across this product on amazon: Amazon.com: Belkin Bluetooth Car Hands-Free Kit for Apple iPod, Apple iPhone, BlackBerry,and Android Smartphones: MP3 Players & Accessories
It's basically a way to link your phone's audio out to the car stereo through bluetooth while having a bluetooth audio-in mic set up wherever you want in your car. No more need to fumble with cables in the car. Annoying to pay the $60 or $70 for it but the functionality should hopefully be worth it. I just ordered it and should get it in a day or two so I can post a review of if it worked well or not...

I started out using this one myself. It's ok, but found the audio quality of the pre-amps in the TuneLink to be quite a bit better, but the TuneLink was nearly double the price. The TuneLink also has a backup FM transmitter in case you find yourself in a car without an aux in.

It worked on my S3 until I flashed the latest software on it. It's annoying!

Well i officially returned my S3 because of the bluetooth issue when having a 3.5 mm wire plugged into the phone. I have a 2010 Nissan Pathfinder with the factory bluetooth stereo. But my question is, if i had the Belkin Aircast bluetooth kit, would i have been able to have the S3 connected to 2 bluetooth devices, 1 being the handsfree kit in the car and the belkin aircast? So whenever i would get a call while listening to music the call would come through from the cars bluetooth, once the call ended, went back to the belkin bluetooth device and continued the music? Would it have stopped playing the music which you would then have to go back and launch the app once again or hit the play button on the app (like with tunein radio app)? I may consider buying the S3 again because going back to my safe mode htc incredible is killing me! I read a thread here and i know others have an issue with this as well so If anyone has tried this and was successful please reply!

Well, I just got a Bluetooth stereo adapter for my car, and that works fine. Make or receive a call, the "Listen" app pauses the audio I was playing, then resumes when the call is terminated.

That meets my needs, so I'll keep the S3. It still seems very odd that Samsung's top of the line phone would not "just do the obviously right thing" that every other company's phones seem to do with no problem whatsoever.

But it's the only serious issue I've had with a phone I otherwise like a lot. And since there is a work-around... fine.

Exact same problem here with my new Verizon S3 -

I am listening to music through headphone cable to Aux in My 09 Tahoe --- call comes in and I have to unplug the phone WHILE driving in order to answer the call -- even though i have a perfect bluetooth voice connection paired with the phone and my tahoe ... a million details to check before roll out and they missed this one ..

don't worry guys - this WILL get fixed. It takes one accident and the liability antennas at samsung will be picking up the signal if they haven't already ...

It won't get fixed unless we all demand it.

I wrote to Samsung support on Facebook and regular email too - on Facebook they seem much more responsive, and I got the same answer. The support guy did say this after I asked if they would consider fixing it:

"No problem Chris! I have sent your concerns over for analysis, though I cannot speculate on any changes at this time. We will keep you posted"

WRITE IN. CALL VERIZON. This is probably a really stupid thing to fix for them, but they won't do it unless we ask.

I flashed back to O2 firmware and it's working fine again

This is a feature I can't live without, god knows why unbranded firmware doesn't support it!!

Confirmed that this is working fine on my GS3 on Rogers (Canada). I use the 3.5mm aux port for music in my car, and bluetooth (BlueStar OnStar replacement module for GM vehicles) for calls.

Listening to music, make or receive a call on bluetooth, music pauses, end the call, music plays again.

Edit: Forgot to mention that in-call the button that switches between headseat/bluetooth works fine.

My GS3 is bone stock from Rogers, ICS 4.0.4.

Off topic: Man, the music app is BUGGY! Pauses and switches songs every now and then for no reason. The sound actually changes when going between screens in the Music App, as well as between Home Screen and Music App. The Sound is much "wider" and better when not in the app and music is playing. (Need good stereo/headphones/ears to hear this problem).

Just realised its not fixed, it's actually when the phone is locked that it doesn't work for me now.

S Voice should work when the screen is locked otherwise it's a rubbish hands free kit for the car!!

Anyone know how to get S Voice to work when there's a pattern lock set?

Don't think this is possible. I'm pretty sure they are assuming that if you are putting something in the way of security to get onto your device (pattern, pin, password, etc), then you wouldn't want unauthorized access to your phone in any way.

Seems crazy to me as S Voice can't completely unlock the phone anyway and the phone had to be unlocked at some point to pair to the headset.

Plus it worked fine before the firmware update. I think it's a bug because like the OP in another similar thread said, it plays a noise indicating its listening then it just turns off the screen and stops.

S Voice allows you to do many things. Call someone, view calendar/appointments/contacts, view email, send messages, search the web, launch apps, etc, etc. Lots of things you wouldn't want an unauthorized person to do if you are setting up security on the lock screen.

I believe that other thread was specifically about when connected to bluetooth. Bluetooth can be buggy sometimes. Has been on a few of my phones. I gaurantee S Voice will not just close unexpectedly when lauched without being connected to bluetooth.

Also, it is interesting that when I initiate a bluetooth call from my car's call button, it launches S-Voice, but 80% of the time quits unexpectedly. It works 100% fine when I initiate the Bluetooth/S-Voice call by double-clicking the home button to launch S-Voice directly from the device.

Again though it worked before the firmware update

It also works over blue tooth if you disable the lock screen. It just doesn't work over blue tooth with a lock screen.

With regards to security, someone would have to have access to a blue tooth headset you had already paired with your phone. Not likely is it there's no real security concern there imo.

Seeing as initiating a call over bluetooth is just another way to launch S-Voice, I am thinking that the same thing happens if you were to try to launch S-Voice without Bluetooth. Meaning that if there is security setup for the lockscreen, S-Voice will not launch from the lockscreen. I will try this over Bluetooth later.

It will and does work on a lockscreen with no security (swipe to unlock).

I agree that if they made it so that it would work over Bluetooth, but not from the phone itself, it wouldn't be much of a risk.

Before the firmware update, were you able to initiate S-Voice BOTH over Bluetooth and direct from the phone (double-tapping home button) when on a secured lockscreen?

If so, it seems to me that in the update, they may have tried to patch the security in S-Voice launching while on a secured lockscreen (non-bluetooth). But since all bluetooth does is launch the S-Voice app, its got to do the same thing both ways.

Default Phone trying to play audio over bluetooth after headphones disconnected

So I got my galaxy s3 and I connect bluetooth headphones when I go to the gym. After I am done and disconnect the headphones my S3 wants to play any music or audio files over bluetooth even though there is no bluetooth device connected.

I change the volume when in the music player and the bluetooth volume comes up, I turn bluetooth on the phone off and it still won't play out the back speaker and continues to try to play over bluetooth. Rebooting the phone corrects the problem, but next time I use the headphones it does the same thing.

Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? I tried searching the forum and found nothing like this one.

very odd indeed. by what method are you disconnecting...and are you powering off the headphones

in theory if you have not powered off the headphones the phone will continue to connect to them, even if you manually disconnected them.

The only options in these cases will be to
a. turn off the headphones
b. unpair the headphones vs disconnecting

I do not believe there is an option to turn off auto connect but I will check tomorrow

The way I am disconnecting is by powering off the headphones. I would hate to have to pair an unpair the headphones each time.

It worked for me today but that may be because I tried to connect to my car after I was done at the gym and it wouldn't connect over bluetooth to my car, which it usually does. I tried forcing my car to connect to it and it wasn't working so I gave up. The headphones were off at this point.

When I got home the music played over the speakers. I don't know what is going on with the bluetooth connections on this phone. My HTC Incredible had no problem switching back and forth.

Has anyone with problems tried going into your bluetooth device setting when it's connected and looked at what your connecting your bluetooth for? I have the LG Tone HBS 700 and it works perfectly under all the problems you guys are saying. In the bluetooth settings I have the option for using bluetooth for Media and also Calls.

When I am in the car I have my phone connected for calls through the bluetooth and audio through the AUX cable into the car. I stream Pandora through the car stereo, and when I get a call the music pauses and the phone rings. I talk just fine through the bluetooth and when I hang up the music resumes.

I don't have a single one of the problems everyone seems to be having so correct me if I am not understanding. Also I set it up so when I push the call button on bluetooth it goes to S-voice which also works great.

Really? I am having a problem with an older Nissan Versa Bluetooth, as well as my old Plantronix 230 earbud. It does not switch to the Bluetooth on either device when the aux jack is in use.

What carrier/Android version are you on? I think most people, even with newer Bluetooth rigs, are having the aux/Bluetooth issue.

I found a solution that works (for me)

this little device purchased from amazon

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083DYPQQ/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00

its an a2dp audio BT reciever. You plug it intio the cars AUX input just like you did the phone and than connect to it via BT. When you make a call on the Cars hands free the music cuts out and the call happens. Just what we want.

What is nice about this little unit (besides being dirt cheap) is that it plug directly into a USB power port for power. A lot of the Audio BT receivers run off a battery and wont work while charging (connected to USB power) so you have to unplug them every time. This wouldn't work for me as my cars power to the lighter outlet shuts off when the car is off. So I'd have to remember to bring it inside to charge it.

The unit I'm recommending has no battery so it can stay plugged in all the time.

I just got this not a 1/2 hour ago. So I really can't comment on sound quality (other than it there), durability or reliability yet. But if you're still having issues, this is something to consider.
JUST SPENT THE DAY WITH THE DEVICE AND IT'S DOESN'T REALLY SOLVE THE ISSUE. AT LEAST ON MY CAR WHEN YOU ARE DONE PARING AND TURN THE ENGINE OFF THEN RESTART YOU CAN'T CONNECT WITH CAR BT UNLESS I UNPAIR FROM THE DEVICE AND REPAIR TO THE CAR...NEVER MIND.

I bought the tune link for my s3 in my tahoe, and i have a samsung charging cradle Amazon.com: Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300, Nexus S, Infuse, Vehicle Dock Kit Car Mount Charger Dock Kit: Cell Phones & Accessories i thought this solution would work, however I have to open bluetooth settings and connect manually each time to tune link and while I am connected with tune link via bluetooth listening to music, when a call comes in the audio goes through the phone speaker for some reason

I just got a Epic Touch 4G which is Sprint's SGS2. It has this same behavior. I was wondering if this is a hardware or software limitation? Would flashing to a different rom or stock android fix these problems? I too like to have BT headset and have the music from the 3.5mm jack..

How odd, I have the tunelink and it reconnects just fine whenever the tunelink is powered on. Make sure you do the following or it won't reconnect:

1) The tunelink cannot be plugged into a power port that is always powered. It will only attempt to reconnect to the phone when it is powered on. If you have an american car, the charging port is probably on by default and you'll need to find the jumper in the fuse box that makes it powered only when the accessories are on.

2) Make sure you install the tunelink app. With this app installed, not only does it reconnect but it resumes playback of whatever app you were listening to when it was powered off and resumes whatever podcast, song, etc was going at the time.

I'm able to connect to the tuneline media profile and the cars bluetooth phone profile at the same time. In fact, I can connect two audio bluetooth devices and a third Elm327 obdII scanner module all at the same time.

Default No Bluetooth and Line Out - Really?

Per stick 2.16, it infers that when line out of phone is plugged in, Bluetooth is disabled. So does this mean when listening to music in my car via line out to Aux input, I can't use my Bluetooth headset to make/receive calls without unplugging the Aux cable first? Seems you should be able to make/receive calls via BT and phone should pause music - like iPhone?

Not true, if you use the *actual* line out of the phone and not the headphone jack, bluetooth works fine. But to use the actual line out which is voltage corrected for auxillary inputs and will get you the best sound quality anyways, you need either the Infuse 4G vehicle dock or a USB connector that splits out the line out out which is only available on the usb pinout.

Is this a limitation of the phone or of Android in general?

I've been googling all over for one of these cables but can only find ones with the Ipad/phone 30 pin connector. Anyone got any links?

really wasn't that hard; first search found Amazon.com: iKross Metallic Black In-Ear 3.5mm Noise-Isolation Stereo Earphones With Handsfree Microphone Headset + USB 2.0 to 3.5mm Female Audio Stereo Microphone Adapter for Laptop, PC, Netbook, Skype, MSN, internet: Cell Phones & Accessories

There were also several listed that were part of "kits" consisting of car chargers, etc.

Hmm, I don't think that's what we're talking about or I'm just not reading the description properly. It seems to be a full-size USB to 3.5 headphone jack adaptor. What we need is a micro-usb on one end to plug into the phone, and a full-size usb AND 3.5 cable on the other end to charge and to plug into the car audio.

Like this, except with a micro-usb instead of an apple connector.

Angry This is a real problem!

This is really unsafe! How can I use my phone as an mp3 player and use Bluetooth? I had a Fascinate and I thought by upgrading to an S3 it would fix it! I'm adding my name to the list, Samsung, fix this.

Don't what you guys are smoking, but when I have the S3 connected through the AUX input in my car, listening to music, bluetooth works fine. Can call out, answer calls, dial out. Everyone can hear me, I can hear them and once I am done with the call the music resumes playing.

BTW, I have a 2011 Acura MDX and this is thru my Handsfree Link.

No one asked for that (until now). This would allow audio out, as requested. Charging it at the same time is a whole other matter and I'm not even sure that could be done at this point in time.

i posted this over in another forum and it does work. and it pairs up every time you do not have to go in and connect either media or audio it remembers.

Aux and Bluetooth.. this works
For anyone that has a car stereo with a usb and auxillary plug I got this one and it works perfect i leave it plugged in (Power to stereo all the time from fuse box) it connects to my plantronics voyager pro hd (headset) and my bluetooth dongle connected to my kenwood stereo with usb (for power) and plugged into 3.5 aux jack (the cord that comes with it is only maybe 4 inches so this is great you don't have that long annoying cord). As soon as i turn bluetooth on in the phone while i am in the kenworth it auto connects to both.
i have profile for voyager pro set to audio only and have the dongle set to media only. music plays nice and clear then when call comes in stereo mutes and call is routed to headset (no echoes and clear) when disconnected from call music starts again.
Been reading about this and have seen people returning their phones because of this so hope it helps anyone.

Just so you guys know, as of the 8/31 build of JB CM10, the audio redirects properly to the Bluetooth headset like every other phone in the world does. Problem is CM10 has poor battery life, terrible LTE performance and sensitivity, along with wifi. This might be worth it though.
