For the time being, I just use the built-in speakers when possible, but I
either need to press the headphones jack rather hard or use a paper clip. I
used to apply pressure the spring in that hole with the stylus, but this
meant that I could not easily feed data to my Palm while doing so. It's a
little frustrating overall because I have a perfectly functional PDA with
plenty of storage space. I just can't make full use of it.
Thanks for your useful answer. Now I at least know that Bluetooth has little
or no potential.
