Please help me get the settings right

Post by strumpan76 on Mon Oct 20, 2014 12:35 pm

I can't seem to get the settings right for SoundAbout.
When I plug in my wired headset I want soumdabout to:
-Make the notifications only go thru the headset speaker and not the phone speaker.
-And I want the app to read the name of the caller.
This have fixed BUT when I unplug the headset it still reads the name of the caller. And that I dont want. So if someone could guide me through the settings to get this done I would appreciate it very much.

SoundAbout doesn't play the Caller ID based on what is being used for audio output.

What you can do is, download and install the Beta from here:

1) After installing, reboot.
2) If you don't want to disturb anyone while headphones are on, set the main phone setting to vibrate or silent.
3) Open SoundAbout
4) Go into "Alert behavior" and then "Caller ID Alert", you set the alert type to "Ring". Click BACK
5) Inside the "Alert behavior" screen click on "Wired headset behavior".
6) Click on "Ringtones to" and select "Headset only".

Now when you set the phone on silent or vibrate, the ringer and caller id will only be heard through the headset when it is on.
