Charge the Bluetooth headset battery. The headset is fully charged when the indicator light turns off.
Unplug the charger and check the indicator light to ensure that the headset is turned off. If the indicator light is on, the headset is on. Turn off the headset by holding the multifunction button (the button in the middle of the headset) until the indicator light blinks red and shuts off.
Press and hold the multifunction button until the indicator light blinks red and blue to place the headset in pairing mode.
Turn on Bluetooth on your phone to start searching for available devices. When the search is complete, a list of available devices appears on the screen. On many phones, the Bluetooth options may be found in Settings.
Select the Kyocera Bluetooth headset name from the list. The phone prompts you to enter a passcode.
Enter "0000" using the phone's keypad to finish connecting the headset to your phone.
The Plantronics Explorer 245 headset can be paired with most Bluetooth-capable phones and smartphones to enable hands-free phone conversations. To pair the headset with a BlackBerry Tour, follow the steps below:
Make sure the Plantronics headset is off before trying to pair the two devices. On your BlackBerry, scroll down to Manage Connections (the antenna icon) in your Home folder and click the trackball. From the list of connections, select Set Up Bluetooth. The Add Device box will appear, asking if you want to search or listen for a Bluetooth device.
At this point, turn your Explorer 245 on by sliding the on/off switch toward the microphone end of the earpiece. Once the device powers on (if you have it in your ear, you'll hear a few short tones) you should see repeating red and blue flashes from the LED lights on the side of the headset. If you only see blue flashes, hold down the call button (the side button) for a few seconds, until the lights start flashing red then blue.
Now, on your Tour, select Search. Bluetooth will be enabled if it's not already, and then the BlackBerry will search for nearby devices. When the headset appears on the list of devices found (it should read "245Plantronics" or something similar) select it. A box will appear letting you know that pairing is now complete, and asking if you want to connect to the headset. Select Yes.
Your BlackBerry Tour and Explorer 245 are now paired. If at any point you turn the headset off, turn the BlackBerry off, or turn the BlackBerry's Bluetooth feature off, the two devices will automatically reconnect when they are able. When you look at your list of paired devices on the BlackBerry, the Explorer headset will appear in bold to show that it is currently connected.
1. Charge the headset:Headset is charged via USB cable, the light will be red when charging. When the battery is fully charged (about 2-3 hours), the red light of the headset will turn off automatically or the red light turns blue.
2. Turn on the headset:Press the on / talk button on the headset for about 5 seconds until the blue and red flashes alternately (or blue flashes or the blue lights all the time ), now the headset is ready to be connected to the iPhone.
3. Go to Settings, and tap Bluetooth. Turn on Bluetooth.
iPhone will automatically start searching for Bluetooth devices. Tap the device in the Devices list, then follow the onscreen instructions to connect to it. After matching successfully, the blue light on the headset will flash twice per time.
4. Call: when you finish all the above steps, you are going to talk via the Bluetooth headset. When there is incoming call, press the on / talk button, you can talk with Bluetooth headset, when you want to end the call, press the on / talk button, you can end the call.
5. Turn off the headset: Press the on / talk button for 5 seconds until the red light of the headset flashes quickly for twice, then release the button, the headset will be turned off.
1How to Pair a Bluetooth Device With an iPhone

button. Select "Bluetooth" and then "Turn Bluetooth On." The phone is
now ready to be connected to the Bluetooth device.
Connect the iPhone Bluetooth travel cable that comes with the iPhone-approved Bluetooth device into the USB 2.0 port on the computer. Do not plug it into the USB port on the keyboard.
Connect the iPhone to the other
end of the cable. The cable goes into the data connection slot on the
bottom of the iPhone. There is another slot on the top of the cable
into which the Bluetooth device should be plugged in.
Wait while the computer loads to
recognize there is something plugged into it. Either a screen will pop
up or an icon will appear on the desktop to let you know that the
computer is recognizing there is a iPhone plugged into it.
Let the Bluetooth device charge
with the iPhone for about one hour. You can tell when the device is
fully charged by viewing the status light on the device. It will be an
amber color until it charges completely. Once the charge completes, it
will turn green.
Remove the Bluetooth device and
the iPhone from the cable that is plugged into the computer's USB port.
Push the button on the top of the Bluetooth device. This allows the
calls to now go through the Bluetooth device instead of straight to the

I have the same problem with my Blackberry 8120, died this morning, will not switch on, no red light, no charging light, completely dead... my computer does not recognise the blackberry at all so cant install any new software.. plus I need to recover all the information that is on the handheld... please help if you can....
need to turn on the bluetooth .. select more devices and click search then turn your bluetooth to search mode... it should blink two colors red and blue if not then your bluetooth has to be flashing in order for the phone to search your bluetooth... when they connect type 0000 and it should connect
not to worry this is a fixable problem..............take te phone to a mobile shop and have them reflash the firmware n custom pack back into the phone and this will correct the problem....the erom needs to be loaded back on the phone.
When it is red light of death, it either means the bootloader of the phone is faulty (after uploading dodgy firmware updates), or the battery is too empty to start-up, let alone display charging progress. In your case you need to leave the phone charging even with the red light flashing and it will be fine. Give it a few hours connected to the charger.
