I paired a Jabra headset to mu Curve foir the first time with Bluetooth. Immediately thereafter the trackball on the Curve would not move vertically. Resetting by removing the battery did not repair the problem

    I solved the problem by cleaning the trackball.

    I sprayed a mild solvent on to a lint free cloth and wiped the trackball thoroughly... Problem solved.

The center ball will not move up. It moves in all


The trackball pins need to be cleaned if that does not work then replaced the trackball.

I have a Blackberry Curve 8320. I purchased a Motorola Universal Bluetooth Headset H620 that is supposed to be Blackberry compatable. I am unable to get my phone and bluetooth paired. What do I need to...


It may be the pairing code that you are using. Usually it is 123, 0000, 1111, 1234, or some other variation.

Make sure, also, that you are in pairing mode with the headset. If you can scan via bluetooth and detect the device, then it should be ready to pair.

Blackberry Curve 8330 can not find my bluetooth headset


Turn the 360 off.
Then turn Bluetooth off, then back on the Curve.
Then turn the 360 back on, input the code when asked to due so.

The blackberry does not "see" the H270


not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I used another phone to pair up with the bluetooth and it worked. at the same time, I plugged the bluetooth into the charger and the blackberry saw it. I guess it needed to be charged.

Blackberry curve won't pair with my bluetooth headset


Hello,

Try the following. Hope this helps.

Okay,


1. Go into "Media" on your BlackBerry and enable incoming files (Menu-->Receive using bluetooth).
2. Find the file on your friend's device that you wish to send, and beam the said file accordingly.
2a. If you have not "paired" (created a friendship between) the two devices before, you will need to do this first...
2b. One of the devices will ask for a PIN code first and on this device you need to create a four-digit, numeric password that can be anything you like.
2c. On the second device, enter the four-digit, numeric password you created and follow the simple, on-screen prompts on both devices to complete the pairing (you can also pair the devices in advance by going into Menu-->Set Up Bluetooth).
2d. Depending on the devices being used and the time taken to complete the pairing, you may need to re-send the file (go back to step 1), otherwise, continue below...
3. When your friend's device tries to send you the file, your BlackBerry should ask you to name the file and where to save it; if you have not set the device as "trusted" in the bluetooth settings (Options-->Bluetooth-->your friend's device), you may need to approve the file transfer first though.
4. The file should now be on your device.


Note: by default, all
* Pictures are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/pictures or /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures if you have a memory card.

* Sounds (including songs) are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/ringtones/ or /Media Card/BlackBerry/ringtones/ if you have a memory card.

* Videos are saved /Device Memory/home/user/videos or /Media Card/BlackBerry/videos if you have a memory card.

In other words, unless you specify somewhere else in step 3, this is where you will find your file.


And remember, your incoming file transfer WILL NOT WORK UNLESS YOU FIRST "PAIR" (CREATE A FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN) THE DEVICES, go into Media and CLICK MENU-->RECEIVE USING BLUETOOTH!!!

Trackball ceased moving vertically after pairing with a jabra headset for the first time


Usually the track ball went bad. If you're out of warranty there is a Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to open a Blackberry and remove the track ball yourself, the part is available on ebay. There are also third party blackberry repair services that will do this for you, but this one can easily be handled using the DIY approach. It shouldn't have to do anything with the jabra headset, that was just a coincidence.

I have a blackberry curve and am wanting to pair my bluetooth HS850 to it. Please help!


There actually is a trick to the HS850 - flip the boom closed, then hold down the button just until the light holds solid - IMMEDIATELY after it does flip the boom open and this should keep the light solid. Then on your cell/device search for bluetooth devices - you should be able to find it now. Passkey for most devices is 0000.
