Problem Pairing Blackberry 8700 w/ BlueAnt Z9 Bluetooth Headset

- Blackberry 8700 (not 8700c) with 4.2.1.96 System Software
- BlueAnt Z9 bluetooth headset

I followed the BlueAnt pairing procedure, to the letter, several times and the two devices will not pair up. "No new devices found."

Any ideas?

    The problem was with the Z9 and the tip came from another FixYa user - thanks! From the power-off state you need to get Z9 into the pairing mode, in which the blue light *continuously* blinks fast. The instructions do not mention this. I forget exactly how I did it but pretty sure it was the timing of powering up the device and holding down both VOL buttons. I may try it again and send an update.

    My Blackberry searches but cannot locate and pair with the Blue Ant. I suppose I will call customer care.

    Same issue with my 8700. I can pair my BlueAnt Z9i with my Curve, but it won't pair with the 8700. I get a "no devices found" message every time, and I've followed the pairing instructions exactly. Does anyone know how to solve this?

I was recently given a blueant Z9 and I cannot get it to work with my blackberry. When I connect the device to charge my computer could not find the installation information also the USB cord provided with...


The socket on your bluetooth headset is for charging purposes only, through either one of your PC's USB ports (your PC won't recognize it as an e.g. pendrive), or the mains charger. It is not meant to be charged via your phone's port, whatsoever.
Anyway, your headset is able to pair with up to 3 devices (phones, computers, etc.). If it has already been paired to 3 devices, its memory is full. In this case, reset it, by pressing, at the same time, these 3 buttons: volume (+),. the volume (-) and the MFB, whilst in idle mode (i.e. not connected to another device). Then, it will automatically enter the pairing mode, denoted by its indicator light with a fast flashing. Otherwise, i.e. if its memory is still idle, starting with it turned off, press and hold the MFB for some 6 seconds, until the indicator light is steadily lit, and then, with a fast flashing. Either way, make your phone's 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 PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing process is successful, your headset should enter the stand-by mode. There could be an indication on your phone too that a headset is connected. The pairing process between any two bluetooth enabled devices should be performed just once. All subsequent connections between them should be achieved by bringing them both within each other's range, with their bluetooth radios turned on, of course. Otherwise, at most, a simple press on your headset's MFB should suffice.
Hope it works for you.
By the way, if your headset's user guide happens to be missing, feel free to download it from this location.
Anyway, please, let me know if you need further informations.
Regards, Carlos

Clear memory on blue ant z9


  1. To reset your Z9i it must be switched on but not connected to any devices.
  2. You should already have deleted the pairing information from your phone, but if you have not, use your phone's Bluetooth menu to disconnect from the Z9i and delete the pairing information.
  3. Now reset the Z9i by holding down "Vol +" and "Vol -" and then clicking the BlueAnt button.
  4. The Z9i will refresh its memory, delete all current pairing information and automatically go into pairing mode.

Can't pair Z9 with my blackberry 8120


Turn off your Z9
Turn the bluetooth feature ON on your 8120
Start the search for the bluetooth device
When the search starts, press and hold your ANT logo-button for about 6 seconds on your Z9.
First it will light up blue then starts flashing continuously.
Your phone should find it now with no problem!
Good Luck!

I cannot remember how to pair BlueAnt bluetooth to new devices


You will need to set the Z9 into pairing mode before your iPhone will find it.

The manual for the z9 is here

With the Z9 OFF, Press and Hold the MFB for about 6 seconds. The LED will appear a solid Blue, and then will start flashing. The Z9 is now in Pairing mode and ready to be found in searches by other Bluetooth devices. Pairing mode will be active for 2 minutes.

Enter Passkey "0000" when your phone prompts you. The phone and Z9 will now Pair.

You put a Blueant Z9 into pairing mode by holding down the main (Blueant) button for 6 seconds until the light starts flashing repeatedly. On early models it will flash alternately red and blue.
