    So I finally got my microUSB to 3.5mm headphone adapter. I plugged in the adapter to the microUSB slot. Plugged my wired headphones in. No sound.

    Has anyone gotten this working? I absolutely need to be able to use my earphones with this device. Wireless bluetooth headphones are not an option when my wired ones are $300 custom in-ear moulded musician's earphones.

    Crap I just did a search and people have reported that the Moto MicroUSB to headphone adapter doesn't work. Duh!

    Well that sucks. This phone might be going back because I need to be able to use my headphones.

    What the hell was Palm thinking?

    Yeah nothing so far works. Seidio is coming out with one really soon I believe (at least I hope so).

    Well I believe most Windows Mobile phones do not have a 3.5mm jack so it's just par for the course. It really sucks though.

    Give it a week or two, the phone just came out and you know Palm will make it or somebody else will. It's just to popular of a phone not to have it.

    So, you can't use headphones with this phone?

    My previous Treos have come with the handsfree stereo headphones. Nothing with the 800w?

    Not without a 3.5mm adapter that works unless you're using bluetooth headphones in which case that works fine.

    It comes with a wired headset. It sounds decent but they fit like total crap in my ears

    My guess is anything proprietary is in the usb head. So there is a very very good chance you can cut off the usb head and use in on your old set. I would expect you are going to see four wires the same color code as your current 4 pole 2.5 or 3.5 mm. In the slim chance this doesn't work you can put both back they way they were with heat shrink.

    I don't have a female usb micro handy, but if anyone does and has a meter it should be extremely easy to probe and post pinouts.

    So, is the bluetooth audio in stereo on this phone, or just mono?

    I seem to remember that the 700p only sent mono audio over bluetooth, but I didn't pay very close attention...

    If you have an A2DP-capable headset the phone will push stereo to it no problem.

    I guessed that the proprietary stuff was in the Microphone/flash button hub along the cord. I cut downstream of that, which was the earbuds.

    I took an old 2.5-3.5 adapter I had from my 755, and spliced it. You have to lightly scrape away the insulation on the wire. It's a little long, but its the best I can do for now.
