Tip & How-To about Radio Communications
Can't find your bluetooth headset listed on the device you want to pair it with? Don't know your pairing pin? Then this tips for you.
Before you can pair your bluetooth headset with your cellphone, computer, car or what have you, you must put the headset into "discovery" or "pairing" mode. This is done in a number of ways depending on what headset model you have. The most common method is to hold down the main button until the light stays solid blue. Another method is to hold the volume up and volume down buttons at the same time to that end. There are only so many buttons on a bluetooth headset, so you'll probably succeed with a little trial and error, but if not, check with your manufacturers support site.
Once your headset is in pairing mode, you'll only have 1 minute or so to pair it with your device, so have it ready. To do this on most phones, go to the bluetooth settings and select "search for new device" or "add bluetooth device" or something along those lines. Once you've found that screen, and once your headset is in discovery mode, the name of your bluetooth headset should appear. Select it.
The device you wish to pair to will now prompt you for a pass key, so here it is: for almost all bluetooth headsets, the key is "0000." I've also heard of a few that respond to "1234"
And that's it! Your all set. Alright, I hope this helps people.
