Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro

1 Answer

Bluetooth connection problems

I have bought 8 bluetooth devices for this palm centro. Each one has the same problem.... I have to have my centro right by my ear with the bluetooth in order to get a connection. If I place my phone down beside me or even in my lap, there is static and then it disconnects. But it I raise my phone back up to my ear near the bluetooth, it's crystal clear. This has happened with all 8 bluetooth devices I have bought. What's going on here? Can this problem be fixed? The bluetooth have ranged from $29.99 all the way up to $119.99.

I know it's the phone... but what can I do to fix this issue. I really like my palm centro, but I hate placing it on my face each time I need to use the phone. Help please. Oh. it's a Sprint Palm Centro. Just got it in February of this year and have not been able to make it work properly with bluetooths.... yes I went through the pairing set up step on the cell each time.

    I have very similar problems with my Plantronics and Jawbone bluetooth sets. Everyone tells me the reception of my messages are broken up and almost inaudible. Also the noise cancelling ability of the Jawbone is nonexistant. I agree with the previous comment that I feel it is the PHONE! I have never had reception problems with Sprint before in years. Sprint refuses to admit anything but they traded in my phone 4 times now! I really need some resolution. Any input is appreciated

I cannot say I have the answer to this, but I am using a Jabra JX10 and it is working well. I previously had a Nokia 6256i, which I loved, but wouldn't work with the bluetooth at all. If you have not tried a Jabra, I would recommend it. Also, if you haven;t tried for a replacement phone, consider the possibility it might be the phone itself.

I cannot get it to connect. My Palm Centro recognizes it, but says that is unable to connect even though it has done so in the past.


Try disconnecting the bluetooth device then turn the bluetooth off then hold the power button untill the bluetooth shows a solid red light then try connecting the bluetooth between your palm and the bluetooth device hope this helps

I can't get my jawbone to pair with my palm centro any idea's


With the jawbone turned off, press at the same time the turn on button and the noise reduction button. The jawbone should blink white and red for three minutes, in that time you shoul be able to find it as a bluetooth device in the free hnd configuration of the palm centro. than yu complete the conection by inserting the code. The next time you turn on the jawbone it will connect with te palm.

Passkey


The passkey is 0000. If you have a problem, reset the headset. Turn the headset off and hold down the call button for 8 seconds until the headset flashes blue and red signaling that it is in pairing mode for the next 120 seconds. While the headset is in pairing mode, use the phone menu to search for Bluetooth devices and select "220Plantronics." (If the headset is already listed in the Bluetooth menu, delete it before searching to pair the device.) When prompted for a passkey, enter 0000. Headset will falsh blue when paired successfully.

Forgot how to par my bluetooth PLT 510 to my Palm Centro


To pair with a Bluetooth device:
  1. Make sure the device's Bluetooth radio is on.
  2. Set the handset's Bluetooth discover mode to On.
  3. Select the appropriate Bluetooth accessory.
  4. Enter your PIN number.

Once a Bluetooth accessory has been paired with the device, it can be used with the device, without the need for re-pairing, assuming the appropriate profile exists for the required service.

Motorola N136 bluetooth wth Palm Centro


ok, so yeah, go to your phone and tell it to search for devices. while it searches, hold down the big button on the front of the headset until the light lights up. while it's lit up, turn it on by folding out the microphone piece. this should almost instantly pair your headset.
