The put most headsets in pairing mode, turn headset OFF, then hold the power button until it goes into pairing mode as discribed above.

My Soyo Free Styler 600 bluetooth headset did not come with instructions, how do you get it to work with the blackberry curve?


on the soyo freestyle 600 you have to power on the device (hold power for about 5 sec) then hold either the volume up or volume down button, I forget, for another 5 sec it should go into pairing mode (Blue-->Red flashing) youre blackberry should b in search mode for bluetooth devices at this point. Then youre blackberry will recognize the device and ask for a passkey (0000 default) registration will be complete at this point once the blackberry recognizes the headset..

Plantronics 330 no longer pairs with Blackberry 8310.


I believe that the bluetooth symbol that you see indicates that bluetooth is enabled on your Blackberry, not that you are connected to a device (at least that's how mine works).

Here are some suggestions:

First, if you are on BES, check with IT to make sure no changes were made (they can block bluetooth).

Next, make sure you are using the most current software. It should be: v4.5.0.108. If you are using an older version, definitely update your software because the 8310 is known to have bluetooth issues.

Do you see your headset listed on "paired devices"? If so, I suggest that you delete it before upgrading the software.

Once your headset is no longer listed (or if it wasn't in the first place), re-connect it to your Blackberry as follows (apologies if you already know this part):

1. Re-set your headset:
Turn the headset off.

Press and hold down the control button.
After 6-10 seconds, the light will flash blue, then it will flash red, then blue.
Release the button when you see the red/blue.

2. On your Blackberry:

Open "Options"
Open "Bluetooth"
Open menu within Bluetooth
If not already on, click "Enable Bluetooth"
Open Bluetooth menu again.
Open "Options".
Turn "Discoverable" to "Yes"

Open the Bluetooth menu a 3rd time.
Click on "Add Device".
Your Blackberry will search for your headset.
If you are prompted for a Passkey, use 0000 (that's 4 zeros).
After a short time, your headset will appear on your Blackberry.
It should appear as Plantronics 3xxx.

Make sure you go back into Bluetooth Options and change "Discoverable" back to "No".


Once you have established a new connection with upgraded software, you should have no trouble with "Transfer Address Book".

Hope this solves your problem.

Connecting bluetooth to blackberry


Hi. You didn't say which Blackberry you have. I'll assume you know who to open "Options" (if not, please let me know what model you are using and I'll give you more specific instructions.

To connect your headset, start on your Blackberry.
Open "Options"
Open "Bluetooth"
Open menu within Bluetooth
If not already on, click "Enable Bluetooth"
Open Bluetooth menu again.
Open "Options".
Turn "Discoverable" to "Yes"

Now to your headset.
Start with your headset turned off.
Press and hold down the silver call control button.
After 6-10 seconds, the light will flash blue, then it will flash red, then blue.
Release the buton when you see the red/blue.

Back to your Blackberry.
Again open "Options"
"Bluetooth"
Open the Bluetooth menu.
Click on "Add Device".
Your Blackberry will search for your headset.
If you are prompted for a Passkey, use 0000 (that's 4 zeros).
After a short time, your headset will appear on your Blackberry.
It is now ready to use.

Make sure you go back into Bluetooth Options and change "Discoverable" back to "No".

A tip: If you will not be using your headset for a while, "Disable" Bluetooth to save battery life.

Hope that helps!

Linking with phone


I struggled with this myself after replacing my RAZR with a blackberry Pearl and losing the manual for my Insten HS120S headset. The key is knowing how to put the headset in "pairing mode". For the HS120S, I finally figured out that you had to hold both the up and down volume buttons until the blue and red LED lights flashed in alternation. Then my blackberry found it on the first try.
