Any way to "turn on" speaker phone while not in a call?

I'm trying to get the phone to play louder while driving so I can listen to the streaming music. Problem is the max volume is too quite still and I've applied the patch to up volume. It works but towards the high end it seems to distort the sound, like the speakers are being forced (well it's true if I worded it right)

So im wondering is it possible to get sound to play out the speaker phone like it does in calls? Since the speakerphone as good quality sound and volume, it's a shame I cant get it to work on other things...

Uh...if it's coming through the speakers and not the earpiece then that's all you're gonna get.

I suggest you get an FM transmitter and hook it to the headphone jack on your tp2 and then you can play whatever you want to play through your car stereo or any amplified set of speakers.

as horndoctor said , the speakerphone just uses the external speakers found on the back of the phone , so when you are playing music , it is using the same speakers . I dont notice and distortion (speakers getting too much power) as you say you are getting , i almost want it louder yet . too be honest , you just might have crappy speakers ? how old is the device ? and mind you that during a phone call the call quality is MUCH lower than streaming music . horndoctor has the best fix for ya , buy a FM transmitter . i might get one just to listen to it through the car speakers .

Re: Any way to "turn on" speaker phone while not in a call?

ugh... that might be a good idea lol, I'll look into seeing if I can find a cheapish one :S I don't use it all that often, just driving back from work at midnight I need something to keep me awake lol

How do fm transmitters work? I mean do I need to install something into car stereo? Or do I plug it into phone and it converts it into fm signals that stereo can pick up? I ask because I don't know if I want the car next to be to pick up my phone calls lol

well , many of them (especially if you are going the cheap route) only have like 1 to 2 feet of range . so i doubt the car next to you will pick up your signal , not to mention they would have to be on the same frequency you are on whitch is highly impossible for them to know . unless you pick one that someone else is on just by chance .

and yes you simply plug it in and it converts the signal to FM . check ebay they should be somewhat cheap , i saw one at AutoZOne for like 25 bucks . but it included the cassette tape and all the other crap i dont want . lol .

Re: Any way to "turn on" speaker phone while not in a call?

Just remember, the cheaper the FM transmitter the lower the quiality of the sound the radio will pickup. I had that problem.
So with that in mind "You get what you pay for"!

Re: Any way to "turn on" speaker phone while not in a call?

And to add to the "get what you pay for" angle...pick one up locally & test it out. If it works well, great; if not, you can return it & try a different model/brand.

The cheaper ones really suck for the most part. You'll get hisses, etc., and you'll go crazy. Also, beware that when you're charging your phone while connected to an FM transmitter, there's a decent chance you'll pick up & transmit noise too. I haven't found a transmitter that didn't do this. :-/

hm, I'll wait until I read up on some then, maybe by end of month I'll pick one out.

You think Walmart would have them, or which local stores are likely too, in US

I think they do , if not I do remember seeing them at radioshack , however it was more than I was willing to pay . I found a promising one from china that is like 1 dollar , then found the same thing in new york for 3 dollars . from the reviews people like it , I like it because not only can you use the cigarette lighter to power the transmitter , but 2 aaa batteries will also power it .

Re: Any way to "turn on" speaker phone while not in a call?

what's it called? I mean the name for the product, not just fm transmitter is it?

I don't mind paying a bit more... I've dealt with ordering from chinese sites before, I got my car mount/charger for TP2 for $5 from one of them but it took almost a month to get here... I'd rather spend a few more dollars than wait that long if possible. Unless the savings are a lot, I can buy "locally" lol
