    this has been driving me nuts that my new 4s notifications (txt, email, calendar) are silenced whenever i am in the car. i figured it out today cause when i streamed pandora, i was able to hear the notification sounds.

    is there any way to get these notifications to sound if i am not streaming?

    thanks,
    eric

    after a lot of digging, this is because the phone connects to the car with a2dp. if you aren't streaming (ie listening to the car radio) all notification sounds are lost. the only solution i have seen is a a2dp blocker app which doesnt allow the phone to connect that way, just with bluetooth. unfortunately it is not updated for ios 5 and doesnt work.

    does anyone else have a solution to this?

    thanks,
    eric
