Motorola hs850 bluetooth headset won't pair with Blackberry Curve
I have a Motorola HS850 that I paired with my Blackberry Curve last year in November. For whatever reason, I unpaired the headset and the Curve. Now I can't get them to pair again. The Blackberry will briefly recognize the headset, and the window asking for the headset passkey will appear for a brief split second before disappearing before I can put in the passkey. When I press the MFB key with the boom closed, it doesn't light up as the manual says it should to get to pairing mode - when I keep the button depressed and flip open the boom at the same time, the Curve finds the device long enough to flash the headset passkey question - but it disappears again before I can enter the key. Is my headset shot?

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."
This worked great for me... I got the headset in "pairing" mode by following these instructions. Then set my BB Curve 8350i to "discover" bluetooth devices. It discovered the headset and asked for a PIN number... one of the other articles I read said the pin was "0000" so I put that in and - PRESTO - it works
I have the same issue with my hs850. It is paired with a blackberry 7130e. My hs850 redials constantly. It is unusable (obviously). It seems to have started once the battery went totally dead. I cant seem to 're-pair' the headset with my blackberry again. I tried Motorola's instructions...no dice.
