    Almost a year ago I purchased the HT820 Motorolla headset so I could pair a bluetooth phone and mp3 player to the same headset. It worked fantastic. Now that I finally have my hands on the Google phone, I was hoping to dual pair the headset to the phone for both media and the phone.

    I don't know if I am doing something wrong during the pairing procedure, but it will not play media through the headset, except in the second before dialing a contact or just after I hang up. Whatever music is playing, comes out of the speakers, but like I said if a call comes in, I hear the music through the headset until I answer, and then it pauses like it should, then plays again after I hang up but it switches back to the external speaker almost immediately.

    It works fine for the phone, and in the Bluetooth list of devices, it shows as connected.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The G1 does not support A2DP, so that means no BT streaming of MP3 audio. You're just hearing music playing through the phone side of the headset. In other words, a bug.

    Bah! I just assumed it would support it. I guess I should have checked into that first. Thanks for the quick reply, it will save me a gray hair or two tonight.

    No worries. I have "heard" that it seems to be planned for a future release. I've got a BT headset too that I'm anxious to fire up.

    Actually this isn't a bug. They said that it would only work for headsets, not for stereo bluetooth. A bug would be if they had said it does work for stereo bluetooth but some flaw in their setup made it not work.
