    Bluetooth connected, but notificaitons sound through device speaker.

    I have an LG bluetooth headset, and a MOTO bluetooth headset, and when connected to the Droid 4 and a notification such as text received or email received sounds, it does not come through the headset, but through the device speaker. This is annoying as I am listening to music while working and want to have my droid be silent to those around me, but still know when I receive an email or message, or calendar reminder or .....

    Anyone know how to fix this stupid oversight, or which group would address it best? Is this a failing of the operating system or the application? The Droid 1 had the same issue and I complained about it several times, but never seemed to get any traction in getting it fixed.

    The thing is, I want it to work the exact same way it would if I have a wired headset plugged into the device. Then all notifications come through the buds in my ears, and not over the speakers. Why is this so hard?

    This is evidently Genious design. My OG did this and so does my Bionic. But a bump and tag in case someone has a solution
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    Not a bug, but a feature. Even does it with physical headphones plugged in, although the device sound is about 10% of the one you hear in your headphones.

    I too would love to know if there's a fix for this.
