    My dealer put an aftermarket bluetooth unit into my car (called ConVerse), and I'm having some issues that I hope someone can help me resolve.

    The unit works great, even lets me stream audio, so that's all fine, but what is NOT fine is that every tiny sound from the phone, or even interacting with the phone, causes the unit to pause my stereo. So I can be listening to something and then an alert comes to the phone and I hear the "ding" from the iphone over my speakers and the stereo stops (TELE-MUTE). It's annoying.

    How do I get the phone to not send those sounds out via bluetooth and just send phonecalls, the thing I actually want over bluetooth?

    I doubt there's a custom solution to your issue, and perhaps you can google similar issues that others might have been able to tackle with jailbreaking and custom codes.

    Jailbreak is pretty much your only hope and tweak things from there. So if jailbreak is not something you want to consider, I suggest you to move on and live with it.

    I would guess that the car kit is wired into the pause area of the radio.

    Normally, there is a delay on these to prevent issues such as the ones you are talking about.

    What is happening is that whenever the iPhone's bluetooth audio device is engaged, it pauses the stereo.

    Basically the options are to alter either the hardware (finding the wire that controls the pause line and fitting a capacitor to it) or alter the software (jailbreak the phone and get it to emulate the actions).
