BlackBerry Accessory Roundup Music Edition: Win a BlackBerry Music Gateway

This Week's BlackBerry Accessory Feature: BlackBerry Music Gateway

BlackBerry Music Gateway

BlackBerry users don't immediately think "music" when firing up their device, but lets face it, most of us want it all in one place so we don't have to carry extra devices. Playing music on your BlackBerry may be annoying at first, but once you get it squared away you can rock out anytime you want with the help of some great accessories. The coolest (and one of my long time favorites) is the BlackBerry Music Gateway. This nifty little accessory lets you stream your music via Bluetooh to external speakers so you can jam almost anywhere. I use it in my house connected to an external speaker, and can carry around my device in my pocket without worrying about having to go to a specific spot in the house to change the track or volume. I've even managed to get it working in my car so I can bring my music on the go.

The BlackBerry Music Gateway just needs a charge from your Mini USB charger. Unfortunately it isn't included with the device, but if you have an older model BlackBerry you should have one laying around. You can always grab one from our store that will get the job done as well. 

If you're at all a music listener, you should really explore just what you can do with a BlackBerry to stream your music. If you want to load it up with MP3's just grab an SD card, load it up and you're good to go. If you want to save on space, you can stream right from Pandora or Slacker and tweak each to your liking. No longer do you need to haul around an MP3 player along with your BlackBerry to have your music on the go.

BlackBerry Accessory Roundup Music Edition: Win a BlackBerry Music Gateway



I have wanted a Music Gateway for a while. I can't rationalize spending the money though. I will just cross my fingers and hope I win one instead :)

This would be a great product for my boyfriend who is a guitar instructor to use with his new Storm 2 he got this week. Plus we can use it at home with either of our Storm 2's.

I hope I win this time as I would love to unleash the music in my BB!
Thanks for yet another awesome contest guys!

This would be an awesome product to win!!! No need for more cords, plus you can be anywhere to change the songs.... what a deal!!!

I think this would be perfect seeing as I'm always carrying about 3 devices for each of their functions... Goodbye MP3 player haha

Not only nice for playing music but can be used with the White Noise application for sleep aid or masking voices to help create more confidentiality in counseling spaces. Oh, please hope I get it!

I have been trying to figure out the easiest way to connect to my deck speakers without re-wiring under the house.

I would love one of these, would make listening to my Music on my BlackBerry when I'm at home easier than having to listen using the Headset, would also be able to charge my phone at the same time as listening to my music collection.

Please consider me for one of these.


it's an awesome..... very clear voice compact.....
my ex-GF used to have one.
I'm desperate to get it ......for free......:)

I was looking for some thing like this online this weekend.

My father and I were thinking . . wouldnt it be nice if they made a small version of this that has a 3.5mm jack that plugs into car's aux input and connected to via bluetooth to the phone . . .

Something small, like the size of a key.

i've wanted one of these for a while but forgot the name. i hate plugging my phone into my receiver for my whole house speakers and not being able to change the track without going downstairs/inside. this would be great in time for pool season.

This music gateway would be perfect!!! I want this badly...I have awesome speakers at home and want to use them with the music on my phone...pretty please!!!!

This would be pretty handy at home for listening to music while I check my email and other stuff on my blackberry

I have been watching this device for some time now and it looks the next BB purchase. Using it in the car would be the ultimate

I think not! I have over 2000 songs on my BB and find it just as functional as any Ipod I've ever had. It would be great to win this music gateway so that I wont have to plug in my phone very time I want t listen to music on my stereo.

I would really love to have one of these to get more use out of the music on my Berry!

I use my 9700 for music all the time. Too bad I didn't win that 16GB SD card so I could load more tunes. Winning this would make up for it though! :-D

Captain Planet, he's our hero,
Gonna take pollution down to zero,
He's our powers magnified,
And he's fighting on the planet side

I didn't get it at first but now I understand its for wireless connectivity rather than having to plug in. COOL sign me up!

The music player on my blackberry is one of my favorite features, and the one I use the most. The Blackberry Music Gateway would be an awesome add on to my phone

I have one connected to my home stereo. Works Great. I listen to Slacker from my BB through my home stereo. Sound Quality is pretty good too.


I don't just want this, I NEED this!!! I travel 2 hours EACH WAY to work and back...I WISH I could hear my music through Bluetooth. Ever since someone stole my aux cable (yes, I could just replace that) I've been stuck listening to the radio...UGH!! THE WORST!!!


this is an awesome product. I would love to get my hands on one. I use my blackberry all the time for music and this would make it much more convenient

This is a nice piece to add to the collection for my berry. It would come in handy for all kinds of different things.
