Nokia must have some 100+ models they put out over the past 2 years alone. So add more detail about the phone and if you could use bluetooth to play these. Remember that some states forbid you fiddling with the phone and driving so I won't dive into that area of discussion or talk about that.

OK, I see the model phone.

But as you can guess, there are even more model cars and then how many different car audio choices.

However a review wrote "4) The headphone audio is rather lame. I hooked the headphones to my car stereo aux-in. My iPod will produce jar rattling volume when configured this way. Playing the same mp3's via the phone's headphones, I have to crank the car's volume to max just to overcome the road noise. This might just be an issue with the car... I haven't looked into it much."

So it could be that the audio output is lower than other players and why you got little or nothing.

Ask a car audio shop about adding a bluetooth receiver to your car.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
