Is there a way to play it through bluetooth without buying the Blackberry Bluetooth Stereo Gateway?
It depends on whether you have Combox. Easiest way to tell that is to use iDrive to go to Multimedia > External Devices and see whether "Bluetooth (audio)" is listed. If it is, go in there, press Options over your phone, and check the Audio checkbox there. If it's not, then you don't have Combox, in which case your options are either to purchase a third-party box like the one mentioned above or take advantage of Combox retrofit services offered by vendors on these boards like Mike Benvo.
