Question about Plantronics Explorer 220 Bluetooth Headset Wireless Headset
I'm trying to pair my bluetooth WEP301 with my ENV2 for verizon. however, it says that "device out of range or powered off", but my bluetooth is on for my phone and the headset itself. i was wondering how to fix this.. i tried many times to connect, but they don't connect. They only pair and doesn't connect.
I had lots of trouble too. I thought it was my phone. Well here's what you do. First off remove the device completely from your phone. Turn off the phone and take the battery off so it can re-boot. When the phone is powered back up put your bluetooth in pairing mode and get it back on your phone. It should connect without any problems. Now....here is the trick. When you want to disconnect the device(bluetooth) from your phone don't turn it off on your phone. Shut the actual power off on your bluetooth. The phone will recognize this and disconnect the device. The only thing left on your phone will be the bluetooth icon. Being the icon still on your phone it is still in discovery mode and can overtime use up your battery life searching for a device. This is when you can go to your phone and turn off the bluetooth. On your NV 2 go to your bluetooth menu and just use your left softkeyto turn it off. Now there is no connection whatsoever. And to turn it back on do the opposite. Go to your bluetooth menu and turn on your bluetooth. You will see the bluetooth icon. Now you power up the bluetooth and it will connect as soon as it get the signal. This took me 2 weeks of trial and error and other stuff but I am happy now and I hope this solves any bluetooth problems...

Well, I was afraid of losing all of my contact info & pics to so I turned off my phone & removed the battery for a minute. I put the battery back on, turned the phone on, turned on my bluetooth & it automatically paired & is now working w/no problems! Thanks to everyone for all of the advice/solutions!

Well im15 but i have had this problem before and i have solved this problem for my lg ev2 and it was acually pretty easy.
you see you usually get it to work for the first time and you think hey this is pretty easy and when you go into your menu to turn it off you usually hit "disconect" well after you hit this your headset wont work again so what i did was. i made sure the headset wasnt on and that the phone bluetooth setting was off. after that i deleted all bluetooth settings on the phone and then went into my phone and set all settings to factory settings. DONt WORRY IT WONT DELETE YOUR PHOTOS, CONTACTS, ECT..... then when that is done go to your bluetooth menu and add the headset again now look for now on NEVER disconect the headset just hit the power button on the headset and on your phone screen it should say something like "headset has been disconected" or somthing along the lines. that means that when you turn it back on it should automatically connect. if not go to the bluetooth menu select your bluetooth's name and hit ok or connect... and there you go all solved... this has helped me, my family, my friends, and many others... try it if not try to do a few new things with the menu or just ask your phone provider for a little help

Hey - it worked!! On my phone, I went to Settings and Tools, Phone Settings, Security and then Restore Factory Settings. I didn't lose contacts, pictures, etc. I then paired my headset with my phone just like the first time I did it and it works! Thanks so much for your help!!
