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


Before using, you must first charge your headset.
20 minutes = minimum charge
2 hours = full charge
Light is solid red when battery is charging.
NOTE For the best user experience, keep your headset fully charged.
CAUTION Do not use headset while charging and do not connect the charger while the headset is in use.

Press the control button for 2 seconds to power on. Press the control button for 3 seconds to power off.

Step One:
Prepare Phone- Turn on Bluetooth For most phones, go to Settings/Tools menu and select Bluetooth or Connectivity and select "On."
Step Two:
Prepare Headset- Pairing Mode Begin with headset turned off. Turn headset on (hold call control button for four seconds until the light flashes blue) and it will automatically go into pairing mode, flashing red and blue.

Need instructions for connecting ear piece to iphone 4

Hi,to complete the look of a tech-savvy, iPhone-using individual, you must have a Bluetooth headset to accompany it. You can pair any Bluetooth headset with an iPhone. The Motorola HS850 is no exception to this. Both Motorola and Apple's Bluetooth set-up process is fast, so you'll be talking with people through your new Bluetooth on your iPhone in a matter of minutes.


Charge the Motorola HS850 headset fully before attempting to pair. Usually, it takes two to three hours to charge the headset.

Press and hold the "Call" button (has a phone icon on it) on the headset for six to 10 seconds. The outside LED light will turn on indicating that the phone is in pairing mode.

Choose "Settings" on the iPhone homescreen.

Select "General," then "Bluetooth."

Select to turn Bluetooth on.

Wait for the phone to search for in-range devices.

Select theMotorola HS850 from the list of devices.

Enter the headset passkey to complete the pairing. By default this is "0000."

Have a nice day..

Just received a brand new, in original packaging, ...

Your headset should enter the pairing mode just by opening its boom. If it has never been paired before, it will be in pairing mode right away. Otherwise, make sure that the bluetooth radio of all devices preivously paired with it, are turned off (or, at least, out of reach). As soon as its boom is opened, and it can't find any paired device active, it will enter the pairing mode. Once your headset is in pairing mode, make the bluetooth application of your phone search for new devices. After a while the H700 should appear on the phone screen. Select it and make the application connect. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). The pairing process should be done only one. All subsequent connections between any two previously paired devices should be done automatically, provided that their bluetooth radios are on and with each other's reach.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Regards, Carlos

Not holding the charge

From the information you have provided, the battery in the unit needs to be replaced. From past experience, I can only suggest that you replace the H500 Headset. When I need a new headset, I've always been able to find one on eBay for a fraction of the retail price. (Usually about $20 for nice one in a 'bulk' package - where the same unit in a retail package would cost $89.95)

The ones I purchase on eBay are new, they just don't have a retail box or instructions (sometimes). If you elect to use eBay, and don't get instructions with your new headset - just re-post here on FixYa requesting a link to the owners guide and we'll send you one ASAP!

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs-up when you rare my answer. Thanks!

My new Cellular headset HFBLU-1K won't work or recharge

the problem seems to be the charging box. if the red light goes off relatively quickly after you place the bluetooth in the box then it is not gaining a charge. you have a warranty with this item that you can claim by following the instructions on the warranty card provided in the package.
