How to get true stereo from Bluetooth A2DP output

By default the Cingular 3125 is set to send out a mono signal at relatively low quality audio via the A2DP Bluetooth. To change this you will need to make a few changes to the registry. If registry mods are not your cup-a-tea, you're outa luck.

The info below is quoted directly from Andrei's post at: »


[HKLM_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Blueto oth/A2DP/Settings]

Modify, Value name=UseJointStereo; Value data=0 (Decimal, Originally 1)
1 - Join Stereo (Mono)
0 - Real Stereo

To improve Audio Quality modify the following keys:

Dword, Value name=BitPool; Value data=48 (Decimal)
Modify, Value MaxSupportedBitPool; Value data=4...

Pop3 Disabled???

Just picked up two new 3125's this weekend and still getting used to the Mobile5 setup.

One of the reasons I bought this phone was for the POP3 Email, but it would appear it's been disabled (by Cingular?), as well as the ability to Add a New Meggaging platform.

According to the Owners Manual (pdf), there should be a 4th option called POP3 at StartMessaging, right after Text, Outlook and MMS. There is no 4th option!

Additionally, when I Select either Text, Outlook or MMS, select Menu, Options, New and input my info for my ISP, the Next Button never goes active, it remains greyed out and unselectable.

What's up with this? Does anyone else have this issue? Do you have a POP3 in your list? If not, and you somehow managed to ena...

WM 5.0, 3125, Music and other help please

Greetings -

just found this site and you guys are the best at answering everyone else's questions.

Just got a 3125 and it's my first experience with Windows Mobile. It's been a hard transition for me, coming from simple Moto GUIs.

Is there a way to get the 3125 to play imported mp3s as ringtones? No success so far. I just installed a Micro SD, and will try moving them there to see if it makes any difference.

Is there a way to change the font COLOUR in the home screen? The white is getting easily washed out.

Any links, resources, or help is greatly appreciated.

I'll reserve future questions to this thread. Thanks for your help!

3125 Quick Theme Questions

Hey guys,
Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to change the background that resides behind the icons that are in the "Start" menu, i.e., Settings, Internet Explorer, Active Sync, etc. because I really dislike the big blue Cingular Jack that is behind there for the background. I have the Microsoft Theme Generator and it lets me change the Home Screen background but the "Start" menu background stays the same. So yea...if anyone has any information on this please post it! Thanks!! Very Happy

External LCD

Just got the phone today. Can someone tell me if something is supposed to show up on the external LCD when the phone is opened? I get the clock when it's closed, but when I open it up it's just a black screen. I can see the back lighting, so it looks like something should be there, but it's just blank. Is that normal?

Personalize Desktop?

Can you edit the desktop configuration of this phone (i.e. delete icons that you don't use, move them around, clean it up, etc.)?

I'd like to be able to move the most used icons to the first scroll sceen and bury ones I'll never (or rarely) use and I'm wondering if that's possible.

Only 7 days left on the ol' Sprint contract and I'm chompin' at the bit to buy this phone!

Also, I heard Cingular makes you buy the $20 data contract upon purchase. I also heard that you can drop it on the 2nd month. Any truth to this???

Thanks for your help!

Speaker Phone Question

I was wondering if you have to wait until a call is connected to activate the speaker phone or if you can turn on the speaker after dialing.

I had a V400 and you had to wait until you were connected for 10-15 seconds to switch to the speaker. A big pain in the ass.

Silicone Case

Hey all,

I just bought a silicone/neoprene case cover for this phone off of eBay. It came with the case, covers for both displays, and a lanyard (strap).

It seems to work quite well thus far! For anyone that buys one of these, some tips to help you get it installed:

1. The covers have two protective shipping/installation covers on them, each side labeled "1" or "2". Peel the "1" cover off, and then cover it over the display you are working on. Take your time to make sure it fits, and don't cover it all the way right off, so that you can make sure it lines up and doesn't have too many air pockets/bubbles. Once it is in place, use the supplied cloth to seal it, and then remove the "2" cover. Then, do the same for the second display.

Voice Tag Problem

I setup some voicetags for some speeddial keys. Setting them up seemed to work fine.

The manual says: "To make a call or launch a program using the voice tag; 1. On the Home screen, press and hold the VOLUME down button on the left side of the phone for two seconds. 2. After a "beep" sound, sat the recorded voice tag that you have assigned to the phone number you want to call or the program you want to launch. The phone plays back the voice tag and then dials or launches the associated program."

When I hold the down side of the volume button down, all that happens is the volume screen is displayed and the volume is lowered one tick. No beep. I have gone ahead and said a voice tag "Calendar"... phone does nothing.

Is the manual ...
