    My droid would use whatever BT headset (stereo or not) for the phone when my headphone jack was also in use (to use car stereo) for audiobook player.

    I have new Fascinate and I swear it did the same until I rooted it. Regardless, it will be close to a deal breaker if I cannot find a solution to this.

    Even if the headset indicator is ON, the sound still goes to the headphone jack, RIDICULOUS

    Thanks for confirmation of problem exists in stock SF. I unrooted mine and confirmed, but still had lingering fear rooting had done something to cause.

    This really sucks. I may end up returning this phone if no one can give me any real hope it will be fixed or fixable.

    I have a friend with a Vibrant and his apparently does NOT have this problem, so I am wondering if a Bluetooth file from his system might work on my phone.

    There are 3 BT files in system dump:
    BT OPP
    BT services
    BT test mode

    so is one of these the file that would determine what path audio would take in any given situation? (e.g. headphone jack occupied while BT headset connected, desired paths media>headphone phone>BT)

    I REALLY need to fix this before my 30 days are up or phone probably going back.

    I got my hopes up when I discovered the 'secret menu', but I don't see any setting in there that seems appropriate
