Please follow the detailed instructions below for the proper pairing of the headset with your phone.

My explorer isnt doing anything.. the led is solid blue and has been for hours.. it seems to be on, but not functioning. my evo wont even pick it up on its bluetooth search


The headset must be put into pairing mode. Once you make your phone discoverable, then put the Plantronics 230 headset into pairing mode by pressing the call control button until it flashes red and blue. If it's not flashing red and blue, then it is not in pairing mode. Here is a link for the pairing instructions for the 230 headset:

Em227 bluetooth wont pair up with my new droid Samsung Mesmerise have had the em227 working on other phones but wont pair with the code 0000


The pairing code for this headset is indeed '0000' (four zeros).. You must put it in pairing mode, prior to trying to pair it with your phone. To do it, starting with it turned off, press and hold the power button for some 10 seconds, until the indicator light is alternately flashing in red and blue. It is in pairing mode now. Then, bring your phone close to it, and make its bluetooth application search for new devices. After a little while, your headset should appear on-screen. Select it and make it connect. If a pairing code (or passkey, or PIN) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing process is successful, your headset should enter the stand-by mode (blue light flashing every few seconds). By the way, If its user guide happens to be missing, or, rather, you need further informations on how to pair it with your phone, feel free to download it from this location.

My iphone 4 finds my 3xx plantronics but it wont pair it.


You must put your headset in pairing mode first. Press and hold the call control button for some 6 seconds, until the indicator light flashes alternately in red and blue, thus indicating the headset is in pairing mode. Only then, make your phone's blueooth application search for new devices. After a while, it should appear on-screen. Select it and make it connect. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing process is successful, the indicator light will flash in blue.
By the way, if its user guide happens to be missing, feel free to download it from this location.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out soon.

Headset does not flash red/blue so I can pair it with my phone


To get it into pairing mode (flashing red and blue) turn the headset off.  Hold the main button down until the light goes red and then off.  Then push and hold that same button and keep holding it even after the blue light comes on.  It will now go into pairing mode, flashing red and blue.  Set your cell phone to find it and it should work.

925 Plantronics will not pair with cell phone.


You are holding down the main button too long.  When it flashes blue and red it is now in pairing mode.  To turn on the headset hold down the main button until you see the blue light come on, then let go.  If you hold it any longer this is when it goes into pairing mode.

Trying to pair BT150 but it won't go into pairing mode


I had the same problem. The many instructions available don't have quite the right details. This worked for me:

1. Turn off the BT150 by holding down the answer button about 5 sec. until the blue light goes off and is not flashing.
2. Turn on the BT150 by holding down the answer button about 5 sec. until the blue light flashes.
3. Keep holding the answer button, and press and hold the volume + button for another 5 sec. until the blue light comes on solid.
