    1. It is not a phone logs. xPlayer registers a listener for incoming phone calls, so it handle correctly handle start call, finish call and make pause, resume

    2. I think you should activate your card at first

    I have installed the software. I will be testing it on a business trip later this week.

    Is there a way to have it recognize the media information? The thing I hate most about the preloaded software is the inability to sort and group songs like most MP3 players will.

    Ok, I tested it for 3 hours each way on the plane. I will be very happy when you start using the information tags. With 400 songs on the card, I had no way of really playing in any kind of order except the way they loaded.

    I found that when you try to pause a song, it will start playing the first song you started playing unless you highlight the song currently playing before pressing pause. You will need to have the highlighting following the current song playing.

    For skipping to the next song, can you pick a button in addition to "n"? I had to hunt for it each time, but was able to find the "p" fine.

    Also, can the volume up and down work while in the holster? To increase or decrease the volume I had to remove the phone each time.

    The overall experience however was good. There are several improvements that are needed, but I still like it better than the one that comes with the device.

    Can't wait for the next version. I am traveling from coast to coast next month, so let me know when the next version is done and I will give it a whirl.

    Thanks.

    i haven't tried it yet, but my big question or potentially a request, is will it work with the motorola S9 bluetooth headset controls. I have no idea how the controls interact with the current media player but if you can make them work with your program you'll have me as a devoted user and i bet a great marketing strategy for all gym goers that want to have music and not miss important calls and emails. the controls currently skip forward and backwards on tracks, pause, mute, make calls and set the volume up and down.

    I like this one better than another I tried. But the main feature I want is to play audio when paired with Bluetooth headphones. I read somewhere that said x-Player did this, but mine does not. Have I missed something? If not this would be a great feature.

    Are there any plans to allow mono play through a Bluetooth headset, so we don't have to switch between stereo headphones and our normal phone headset? Or is this a BB hardware limitation?

    I have a Curve and mainly use my Ipod to listen to podcasts. If I could listen to them on my Curve, I would retire my Ipod to a drawer!

    I just downloaded it and tried it. The full screen video is really cool. However I think a fast forward/reverse control would be really nice. The implementation in the native BB media player isn't bad, it just wasn't granular enough which drove me crazy. If you had some sort of sliding scale with another button that does a 10 sec skip forward would be good.
