Does the BB 9700/9780 need a special earphone plug

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Some kid in my class was claiming that his BB 9700/9780 needs a 3.5 mm jack plug like most earphones are, but that only the ones of BB worked. When plugging in Iphone ears, they fitted but didn't give sound. Has this something do to with the fact that the BB ears have 3 circle on the jack and normal ones too?

I've never head a problem using normal non-BB headphones in my 8900 or either of my 9630's. Do your iPhone headphones have the button on them? I'm not familiar with any of Apple's proprietary crap but I'd venture a guess it has something to do with that. I don't know why you'd use them anyways, they're still the worst sounding headphone on the market. $5 eBay no-names have better sound.
APU what?

No mate, the Apple earphones should work fine on the 9700 and on the 9780 (Tested). What shouldn´t work ios the Mic and the Volume buttons because they are not Compatible with Blackberry Device.
Hope this helps
Cheers,
