I recently purchased a non-brand name Bluetooth device on line. When I tried to activate it, I had no devices listed in the Bluetooth device file. Am I doing something wrong? Can I get the device software to connect the divece?
You have to "pair" your bluetooth device with your phone. This is just a fancy way of saying "sync" with each other. Check your bluetooth headset instructions on how to do this.
I am using a Motorola H700 Bluetooth Headset. To "pair" it with my phone I have to hold down the call button on the actual bluetooth headset itself while the headset is turned off. This puts the headset in "pairing" mode so its ready to detect any phone that wants to sync with it.
Then I have to go to my actual LG CU400 and enable bluetooth settings. Next, go to "Device List" settings and select "new". The phone will scan for the headset. Once the phone detects the headset it will request a numercial passcode. Your bluetooth headset instructions should list this passcode. Enter the passcode and the phone and headset are now connected! I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Different phones have different menus or ways to access Bluetooth settings. Here's one example and you will of course need to have Bluetooth activated on the other device. It would be best for you to do a Google search for "connect (phone brand/model) to (other device name) bluetooth".
There are several reasons why the bluetooth may not be functioning correctly. If the device has extremely low battery power, the bluetooth may not function correctly. The software may need to be updated, or the device may need to be reconfigured.
The first thing you need to do is power down your device, remove the battery, reinsert the battery and power the device back on. After the device boots, repeat the steps for enabling the bluetooth operation.
If that does not work, you may need to update the device software. This can be done by selecting Options > Check for Updates. (Keep in mind when updating your device, it's a good idea to back up any data stored on the device first. Also, this uses data transmission and you can incur charges from your service provider if not on an unlimited or sufficient data plan.)
If neither of the above seem to work, your best bet is to contact your service providers technical support dept and they can assist you with further troubleshooting.
To use the Bluetooth function on your handset, you will need to select Menu>Settings>Connectivity>Bluetooth. Then you will need to activate the feature. To do this, select ON to activate it. Then you will need to make your handset visible, to do this you will select visibility, or my phone's visibility, to the ON position. This will enable other Bluetooth users to connect with your handset for sharing. Note: You will have to accept when someone is trying to connect to your handset via Bluetooth if you wish to accept. To pair with a device, you will simply select search for device, and it will pick up any Bluetooth devices in the area. Please note that your device is Bluetooth A2DP capable, which means that you can use any Bluetooth technology equipnent that is A2DP and below, it is backward compatible. You will not be able to pair if the Bluetooth technology is greater than A2DP. You also have the ability to name your handset, to do this simply select My phone's name, and choose the name that you desire the handset to have. This will make it easier for someone to pair with you if you choose to share files.
Although the Blackberry pearl does not come with a speakerphone, you can still set up this function by using a Bluetooth device.
HERE IS WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
Power on your Blackberry using the On/Off button in the lower right-hand corner of the device
Turn on Bluetooth
Find the Bluetooth option. In the main menu, select "device options."
Enable Bluetooth radio. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see the option "Enable Bluetooth". Select this function (click the trackwheel) to turn on Bluetooth compatibility. If you have completed this step correctly, you will now see a "Bluetooth icon" on your Blackberry screen. If you want, you can later turn off Bluetooth by repeating Steps 1 to 3 and then selecting "disable Bluetooth".
Pair your Blackberry with a Bluetooth speakerphone
Power on your Bluetooth speakerphone device using its On/Off switch or button.
Find the Bluetooth option in the main menu by again selecting "device options" and then using the trackwheel to scroll down until you see Bluetooth. Select this by clicking the trackwheel.
Add your Bluetooth device. Click on the trackwheel to scroll down until you see "Add Device." Then click on the trackwheel to select this function.
Enter the name and passkey of your Bluetooth device. When prompted, scroll down with the track wheel until you see the name of your Bluetooth device. Your Blackberry automatically detect your Bluetooth speakerphone if it is within 10 meters. If it does not, enter the name of the device, then type in the passkey provided by the manufacturer of the speakerphone.
Enter the passkey on your Bluetooth speakerphone. Your Blackberry and Bluetooth speakerphone can now communicate with one another.
To use the speaker during a call all you need to do is;
Dial a number and hit the send key. Make sure that your Bluetooth speakerphone is on, and that you have already set your Blackberry to "Enable Bluetooth." If you see the "Bluetooth icon" you have already done this step.
Activate your Bluetooth device. When the call has connected, click on the trackwheel until you see the option "Bluetooth Device". Then click on the trackwheel to activate the Bluetooth function. Your Blackberry will now route your call to the Bluetooth Speakerphone.
Turn on the speakerphone. Depending on which Bluetooth Speakerphone you have purchased, you may need to click on the "speakerphone" button to enable this function. Once the speakerphone is on, you may continue with your phone call.
