    I like to use my phone as my MP3 player and have an AUX port on my car stereo that I use. On my old phone if I plug headphones or 3.5cable into the jack the phone thinks it has a Mic and disables the one on the phone. So if I get a call while in the car listening to music I can answer the phone and hear the caller through my car stereo but they cannot hear me. Am I going to need a special cable with mic to use in my car?

    I don't have my Incredible yet but want to make sure I have all the cables and gadgets before it gets here in a couple weeks. I do a lot of car traveling for business and need to make calls and listen to music.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure about this, but I think I remember reading others' experience with some headphones with longer plugs will disable the mic. In my own experience, I use a set of headphones rather than hold the phone to my head and rely on the phone mic and it works fine.

    The cable does not disable the mic. When a call comes in the music stops or pauses depending on what you are listening to, you can speak and they will hear you, and when you hang up you're back to where you were.

    Yeah and from my experience so far, the caller's voice comes through the headphones. So in your case, you'll be able to hear them through your car speakers. Should make things easy

    I have the Incredible and also use it in my car, I have found out that the cable disables the speakerphone feature, yes the music turns off and you can hear the other party through your car speakers, but you will have to speak up loudly so that the phone is able to pick up your voice through the phone mic. They do sell audio cables with a built in mic so that it works well. I haven't purchased one so I am not sure of the cost.

    If you want to disable the mic use a widget called "headset blocker". Solved my issues with random FM radio scanning, voice dialing and a few other issues.
