How to turn Bluetooth on and off on a BlackBerry Tour

The BlackBerry Tour comes with Bluetooth capability, but in order to connect to a Bluetooth device, you have to enable the Bluetooth functionality. When you're not using a Bluetooth connection, disable Bluetooth to avoid other devices from connecting to your BlackBerry.

- To turn Bluetooth on:

From the main home screen, press the BlackBerry button (to the left of the trackball) to go to your Home folder. Scroll down until you see the antenna icon for Manage Connections and click on it. A pop up list will appear; find Bluetooth on the list and click it to put a check in the box next to it. "On" will appear next to Bluetooth, and the Bluetooth icon will be displayed in the upper right corner of the screen. Your BlackBerry is now in Bluetooth mode, where it can connect and pair with other Bluetooth-capable devices.

Bluetooth can also be turned on from the Options folder, under the Home folder. Select Bluetooth from the list and when the screen comes up saying "Bluetooth: Disabled," press the BlackBerry button and then select Enable Bluetooth. If you've previously paired your Tour with other Bluetooth devices, the list of those devices will appear.

- To turn Bluetooth off:

From the home screen, press the BlackBerry button. Scroll down to Manage Connections and select it. In the list that appears, click Bluetooth to uncheck it and disable Bluetooth functionality.

You can also turn Bluetooth off by clicking Options in the Home folder, selecting Bluetooth from the list of options, then pressing the BlackBerry button and choosing Disable Bluetooth.

I AM NOT ABLE TO PAIR JABRA BT135 WITH MY BLACKBERRY 9700. WHAT SHALL I DO?


Hi,Instructions on how to pair blue tooth device with black berry.


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.

Have a nice day .

How do I use the loud speaker on a Blackberry pearl?


Hi there

Although the Blackberry pearl does not come with a speakerphone, you can still set up this function by using a Bluetooth device.

HERE IS WHAT YOU SHOULD DO

Power on your Blackberry using the On/Off button in the lower right-hand corner of the device

Turn on Bluetooth

Find the Bluetooth option. In the main menu, select "device options."

Enable Bluetooth radio. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see the option "Enable Bluetooth". Select this function (click the trackwheel) to turn on Bluetooth compatibility. If you have completed this step correctly, you will now see a "Bluetooth icon" on your Blackberry screen. If you want, you can later turn off Bluetooth by repeating Steps 1 to 3 and then selecting "disable Bluetooth".

Pair your Blackberry with a Bluetooth speakerphone

Power on your Bluetooth speakerphone device using its On/Off switch or button.

Find the Bluetooth option in the main menu by again selecting "device options" and then using the trackwheel to scroll down until you see Bluetooth. Select this by clicking the trackwheel.

Add your Bluetooth device. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see "Add Device." Then click on the trackwheel to select this function.

Enter the name and passkey of your Bluetooth device. When prompted, scroll down with the track wheel until you see the name of your Bluetooth device. Your Blackberry automatically detect your Bluetooth speakerphone if it is within 10 meters. If it does not, enter the name of the device, then type in the passkey provided by the manufacturer of the speakerphone.

Enter the passkey on your Bluetooth speakerphone. Your Blackberry and Bluetooth speakerphone can now communicate with one another.


To use the speaker during a call all you need to do is;

Dial a number and hit the send key. Make sure that your Bluetooth speakerphone is on, and that you have already set your Blackberry to "Enable Bluetooth." If you see the "Bluetooth icon" you have already done this step.

Activate your Bluetooth device. When the call has connected, click on the trackwheel until you see the option "Bluetooth Device". Then click on the trackwheel to activate the Bluetooth function. Your Blackberry will now route your call to the Bluetooth Speakerphone.

Turn on the speakerphone. Depending on which Bluetooth Speakerphone you have purchased, you may need to click on the "speakerphone" button to enable this function. Once the speakerphone is on, you may continue with your phone call.

how can i set the em227pk bluetooth up for pairing? plz help.


In order to pair a BlackBerry smartphone with a Bluetooth enabled device (e.g. a Bluetooth enabled headset), the Bluetooth enabled device must be in pairing mode. Most Bluetooth enabled devices are not set to pairing mode by default. Refer to your Bluetooth enabled device manual for instructions on how to set the Bluetooth enabled device to pairing mode.
To pair the BlackBerry smartphone with a Bluetooth enabled device, complete the following steps:
1) On the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options > Bluetooth. If you cannot find the Bluetooth option,
2) Open the menu and select Add Device. The Select Device list appears and lists Bluetooth enabled devices that are in range and available to be paired.
Note: Only BlackBerry smartphones enabled with Bluetooth technology that are in range and in pairing mode will appear in the available Select Device list.
3) Select the Bluetooth enabled device with which you are pairing. The Enter passkey dialog appears.
4) Type the passkey to authenticate the Bluetooth enabled device. Most Bluetooth enabled devices contain a hard coded passkey. See your Bluetooth enabled device manual for the passkey.
Note: 0000 is the universal passkey for pairing any Bluetooth enabled device with a BlackBerry smartphone.
Note: Once a Bluetooth enabled device is paired, it appears in the Paired Devices list. The Bluetooth enabled device will no longer appear in the Select Device list.
Bluetooth devices are manufacturer specific. Please refer user manual for instructions on how to pair with other devices.
