    One would think so... though, unfortunately, it doesn't always work out quite that way. Bluetooth is a standards based protocol but each Bluetooth device is run by a bluetooth stack written by the device vendor. For that reason it often comes down to how well the vendor implemented bluetooth on the device.

    According to the user manual for the Plantronics Explorer 360, it looks like the only Bluetooth protocols that the phone supports are Hands-Free and Headset. If the headset played music on your old phone then there's a very good chance that Nokia deviated from the Bluetooth standard and allowed the phone to stream music across one of the other supported profiles.
