    I recently purchase a Z9i on the pretext that it would play music via A2DP. Blueant says for a fact on their website that the headset would combine the stereo music into a mono track.

    However, after pairing with my 8900, music still plays over my phone's speaker.

    It puzzles me as the 8900 supports A2DP. Quick check with bluetooth settings in options shows A2DP supported. But after pairing, the only devices listed are "headset" and "handset".

    Any Z9i and 8900 owners here who managed to stream music to their Z9i? I want to know for a fact that either: (a) it doesn't so i can return it or (b) it does and i'm doing something wrong.

    Btw, the firmware version is 1.1.

    Also, I've noticed that when i receive an incoming call, the Z9i doesn't play the ringtone. Is this normal?

    I've sent Blueant a mail. No guesses what their answer will be.

    I hear ya! I've had my Blackberry Curve and Z9i for almost a year now and still can't play the BB Media Player over my Z9i. Very lame.

    In general, I like the Z9i, but for this (lacking) feature alone, I should have returned it and found an earpiece that actually worked.

    Shoot, it'll even send the Sprint Navigation to the Z9i... why not it's own Media Player?

    {sigh}

    Well, I have new information direct from BlueAnt. I received this email after my own query:

    Hi Matt

    Unfortunately No, the Z9i will never support A2DP to stream music as this
    requires different hardware.
