how do I connect my blackberry cel phone to my bluetooth ce0678


Hi, you can use this instruction to pair your blue tooth with your cell phone:

Instructions

Pair Your Blackberry with a Bluetooth Headset



Turn on Bluetooth headset and Blackberry hand-held.

Enable the Bluetooth radio by going to the options window and clicking on Bluetooth. Click on Enable Bluetooth in that window.

Add your Bluetooth headset to your Blackberry by clicking on Add Device in the Bluetooth window.

Find and select the name of your Bluetooth headset from the list that appears. The Blackberry will search for all Bluetooth devices within range, so other devices might show up on the list.


Click Activate Bluetooth device if you receive a call and the Bluetooth headset does not pick up automatically.



Use your Bluetooth Headset with your Blackberry

Make sure the Bluetooth radio on your Blackberry is turned on before you try to use your Bluetooth headset.

Use the voice-dial feature to call contacts if your headset has that capability. Not all headsets support voice dialing, but more of the newer models do.

Press the on/off button on your headset to end a call or use the end button on the handheld.



Tips & Warnings

Pair your Blackberry with any Bluetooth-enabled device using the same steps as those for connecting a Bluetooth headset.

Remove your Bluetooth headset from the list of paired devices on your Blackberry by selecting and clicking on Delete Device in the Bluetooth window.

Configure your Blackberry to connect to a paired Bluetooth headset without asking for authorization in the Bluetooth Device Properties window. That will allow your headset to automatically reconnect even if you take it out of range temporarily.

Only configure a Bluetooth headset to your Blackberry once. Once you configure the pairing between the two devices, the settings are saved and you do not have to repeat the processes each time you use it.

Turn off the Bluetooth radio on your Blackberry when not in use for security reasons.

Adjust volume on your headset or hand-held to a comfortable level. Excess volume from in-the-ear headsets can cause hearing damage.


Good luck to you..

can not get my h695 to pair with my phone


If the unit is charged, then be sure the phone is bluetooth capable and set to receive a connection. THEN turn the headset on- THEN set the phone to look for bluetooth devices and it should find the headset--- THEN OK the connection and you're in!

my lg incite bluetooth does not detect the motorola S9 bluetooth


this took me nearly an hour to figure out, but here goes:

go to "settings icon" - tap "bluetooth" - turn it on - go to "accessibility" tab - make sure your phone has a "name" - then make sure "allow other devices to connect", "all devices" and "other devices can discover me" are selected - then go back to the "general" tab - tap on the "bluetooth manager" link - go to "active connections tab" - click on "menu" at the bottom right corner - click on "paired devices" when the menu comes up - click on "add".

Now quickly put your bluetooth headset into pairing mode and as soon as the device and passkey asking screen comes up, tap on the little windows "find" (or "search") icon next to the "device" field. once your phone detects your headset, it will take you back the device and passkey screen, where the name of your headset will now appear in the device field. all you have to do is input your device passkey.

Now go back to "bluetooth manager" screen, where in your "my shortcuts" tab, your "hands-free connection" icon should be present. if it's not, then click on "new" in the bottom left corner and select the "hands-free/headset setup". On the screen that comes up, select "next" which will take you to the next screen. Here your headset device icon will be present with a small red checkmark beside it. Tap this and your phone will establish a connection with your headset. It will then take you back to "bluetooth manager" - "my shortcuts" screen where your "hands-free connection" icon will now be green with two small arrows beside it pointing towards each other. If you click on the active connections tab, you'll see your headset device icon there. Also, a pair of headphones will pop up on your windows toolbar at the very top.

After this setup, to ensure your phone's security, go back to the "settings" - "bluetooth" - "accessibility" tab. Select "paired devices only" under the Accessibility heading, and deselect "other devices can discover me".

Hope this helps everyone...so far this is the only non-user friendly feature of the phone that I've come across, rest is pretty good and highly customizable.
