    I've become EXTREMELY annoyed by the fact that when I get a notification while I'm listening to music it mutes my music to play the ringtone. Even if my phone is on silent it will stop my music and play silence. Is there any fix for this problem? I'm going crazy here.

    mine does it too, but it doesn't bother me. all my notifications are just the phone quickly saying "DROOOOIIID". so it's no more than a second or two. big deal.

    It isn't specifically made to be a music phone like the iPhone, hence the stupid media player interface. Plus the headphone jacks on a couple of the units don't even work right.

    That won't work. It'll pause the song and leave a blank no song area between that.

    Whats the point of disabling notifications? No more missed calls, no more knowing you're getting calls, etc. you get the idea haha

    That'd defeat the purpose of the droid.

    I thought Android could play two sounds at once. This is upsetting, and reminds me of my BB... which had this same problem.... one sound at a time.

    It only happens when your head phones are in. It plays both when you're. Using the speaker.

    confirmed. Why is this though? I get two sounds out of my headphones (same ones) when plugged into my PC.

    Same here.. No matter what you try itll still skip/pause the sound. Sucks for sure and I hope its addressed in the future as well.

    This is a major problem for me. I listen to podcasts every day at work and even now as I type this, I just got an email from registering for droidforums. It cut out the sound for about 3 seconds. People say A LOT in 3 seconds. They need to fix this immediately. I don't want to put my phone in airplane mode every time I listen to a podcast or some music.

    because when the message comes through, it plays the notification through the speaker of the phone. while it may seem annoying when you're listening to music, it can be a "life saver" should you have leave your headphones in and not on and you get a message, phone call, etc.
