Default Another Bluetooth Question

I have finally been able to find a Bluetooth receiver that will pair with my G5, but I'm noticing that when I have the G5 in the charger, it doesn't work. This is just the standard charger, not the amplified version.

I had been trying various Bluetooth receivers now for several weeks and none of them worked, but all of those attempts were made with the pager in the charger. Just by chance, I had the pager out of the charger earlier today and attempted to pair with a new Bluetooth receiver and it worked. As soon as I put the pager in the charger, audio started coming out of the pager's speaker and stopped coming out of my PC's speakers (the BT receiver was connected via audio cable to the line in on the PC).

I'm attempting to run one of my Broadcastify feeds using the pager, so leaving it out of the charger to run off of battery power isn't an option.

Does anyone know if the amplified charger works in the same manner, in that it disables the Bluetooth on the pager when the pager is inserted into the charger?

The feed sounds great using BT...no "thump" noises that have been described in other threads, so that's why I'm trying to use that rather than an amplified charger and audio cable.

From what I have read here the BT will not work while the radio is charging/plugged in. I was considering this for my feed too at one time.

Ok. I thought I had read every BT related post on here but I must have missed that one. Thanks for confirming my suspicion. Guess I'll be getting an amplified charger and will just have to deal with that dreaded thumping sound.

You can still keep it charged for your feed, if you just charge it from USB, instead of the drop in charger, as the Bluetooth still works ok, I done that way.
What Model Bluetooth receiver did you find, that works good for it ??

I'm also interested in knowing what BT receiver you've found to use with taking audio from a G4/G5 to computer. My computer has a built-in BT tranceiver, but I can't get the pager to pair with it as an audio device at all. Thanks!

I'm using one of these, which are sold under various names on Amazon:

Just an idea:
Is it not doing bluetooth when its plugged in because it thinks you want to use their charger/speaker base?

Just wondering...I had one of those charger/speaker bases by Unication and was not impressed overall.
