Motorola H500 earpiece fix

I've read quite a few posts from people complaining about the H500's earpiece being too loose and it flopping when they turn their heads. Here is a fix. After wearing mine for two days I was aggravated enough to try and find a solution. I love the H500 and didnt want to give it up,but the dang thing WAS loose... so :

1. Take the earpiece off just as if you were going to make it as if you would use it on the opposite ear.

2. Notice the sharp bend at the top of earpiece.That is where we will make the adjustment.

3. Get a candle or have a friend to hold a lighter steadily for you

4. Run sharp bend of earpiece thru the flame (DO NOT HOLD OVER THE FLAME) paying attention to the plastic,when it takes on an oily smooth look it will be warm enough to GENTLY push the two ends towards each other to tighten the hook shape. Run the earpiece under cool water when desired shape is reached and make sure plastic is cool. reattach the earpiece and place on ear.

5. Shake head side to side and that baby "shouldn't" budge at all. if it does adjust a little more using the above steps.


I hope this helps as it was one of the biggest gripes out there.

Go to the Motorola web site and find the user manual for the H500. The instructions are there. The passcode is probably 0000.
Go to the LG manual for Bluetooth to find out how to get the phone to search for the new device when adding a device. The steps are probably something like this:
1. Turn on the earpiece and the phone.
2. In the phone menu, go to Setup or Options, then Bluetooth, then Add Device.
3. Choose Search for a Device
4. The phone will find your earpiece, so select it
5. The phone will ask for the passcode, so enter it (again, probably 0000 but check the H500 manual)
6. Wait several seconds for them to synch.
7. You are ready to go

My iPhone 3G does not discover my Motorola H500.


Try this link. It solved my issue www.scribd.com/doc/280088/motorola-h500-bluetooth-earpiece-manual. Basically what you need to do is power the earpiece off. Make sure that your IPhone is not currently attempting to discover bluetooth devices (i.e. Bluetooth is OFF). Hold the On button on your earpiece (it has the symbol of a phone on it) for 6-10 seconds. The light on the earpiece remains lit. Now your earpiece is in discovery mode. On your IPhone, go to Settings, General, Bluetooth. Turn Bluetooth ON. Now your phone and your earpiece are both in discovery mode. When you see "Headset" listed, select it and enter the password "0000". Your IPhone is now paired with your H500 headset.

motorla h500 plastic earpiece his loose


Try taking it off and putting it on again. The user manual explains how to do it on the top of page two. Otherwise, it may be bent or defective.
