Pair my Sony Ericsson bluetooth HBH-PV703 with Pantech Impact cell phone

You must put your headset in pairing mode first. Starting with it turned off, press and hold the call handling key until the indicator light flashes alternately in red and blue. Then, make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a while, your headset 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 headset should enter the stand-by mode, and there should be some indications on your phone too.
The pairing process between any two bluetooth enabled devices should be done only once. All subsequent connections should be achieved by turning both your headset and your phone's bluetooth radio on and bringing them both into each other's range. At most, a single press on the headset's call handling key should do.
Hope it works for you.
By the way, if your headset's user guide seems to be missing, feel free to download it from this location.
Please, let me know if you need further informations.
Regards, Carlos

Can i pair k750i with HBH610a?

Yes. I have this old trusty combination and it works perfectly with auto-pairing. The phone also supports bluetooth v2.0 which means good sound quality and excellent link reliability.

I cannot pair my Nokia N95 with HBH-608 Akono headset

Press and hold down the headset volume key in the centre. Hold it for about 5 sec. The led will now flash on/off in red. This is the pairing mode. Set your mobile phone to blue tooth discovery mode,until it finds the headset, key in the pass key, 0000. It should now work. You may need to set the phone to select the headset as an automatic connection so it connects whenever it is on and in range.

Figured out the problem, If you hold the Volume + and - buttons for 5+ seconds, The blue tooth will go into Search mode and flash green and red, This will allow you to connect it to new devices, If it was already connected to a previous device everytime you turn it on its searching for the older device, You have to pair it with the newer device

blinking red and green means the headset is in pairing mode and ready to be connected to your phone. This means it is either the first time you have paired the headset or you have depressed the volume +/- buttons simultaneously for more than 5 seconds. If your phone cannot find the headset, it may be a compatibility issue. Try pairing the headset with a friends phone, possibly a sony ericsson. Good luck.

1) Make sure headset is off. 2) Press and hold the answer button until the light flashes green and red. 3) If it only flashes green, press and hold both volume buttons until the light lashes red and green. 4) It is now ready to pair: follow the instructions in the bluetooth menu of your phone. When asked for the passcode enter 0000. 5) All done.
