It mutes the sound but I'm not seeing that it pauses the sound.  I hear 
the "ring" of the phone ... click to p/u and I hear the call not the music.  
Then when I terminate the call music is back.  So far haven't run a real call 
of any length.   

AVRCP does work otherwise. FF volume controls etc are all there.
