headset jack issues

I'd like to hook up stereo earphones, or my car stereo to my DLX, to use it as a music player, but I'm having trouble finding a headset adapter that works properly.

I have a normal 1/8" to 3/32" stereo adapter I bought at radio shack, but when it's plugged in all the way, I only get the right channel. I have to pull it out just slightly before I get both left and right.

I also picked up a Shure MPA-2B adapter, which has the third ring, so it can transmit microphone signal, but that has the same problem as the stereo adapter -- I need to pull it out just a tiny bit to get stereo out of it.

Is the headset jack somehow proprietary, or have I just been unable to find the right adapter to get? Anyone know what that adapter might be?

does Evdo mean 3g???

i noticed that the Katana 1 says Qualcomm 3g on the battery cover. sooooooo if the Katana DLX has EV-DO r.0 is that necessarily 3g, or are the two not even related? and whats the difference in its upload and download speeds???? i need a phone that my kiosk sells, and i don't want a razr or upstage. this seems like the only suitable option.

Katana DLX extended battery question

I haven't placed my order yet as waiting for contract to end with Verizon Wireless.

I know the Katana DLX is thicker at the top than the bottom.

So with the extended battery and cover will it be even top to bottom or will the bottom be thicker than the top?

Thanks for your help!!

Car Charger

Can anybody suggest if there are other car chargers from 3rd party shops that is compatable with the DLX? I can't stomach paying 30 bucks for it.

Bluetooth sucks!

I have no real complaints about this phone other than the fact that bluetooth reception is absolutely horrid compared to the Samsung and POS Motorolas I've owned in the past. I've tried it with three different headsets, and each time the person on the other end says they can barely hear me and that I'm cutting out. This happens no matter how close the phone is to the headset.

Things are even worse when I try to run stereo bluetooth output to my Sony-Ericsson DS970. The sound is not only tinny and choppy, but it will cut out for seconds at a time. Not to mention that, for some reason, the music player won't play certain MP3s that always played fine on my M1.

What gives, Sanyo?

Memory specs

Found this on a site:
ROM: 128MB

those are the memory specfications for the DLX, yet we can access only 32MB. So, if the firmware takes up 96MB, and it needs 96MB RAM, thats more than what a Windows Mobile PPC w/ 64MB RAM would need.
