with mobile and stationary devices. While it has applications in
non-civilian work, such as military and space organizations, bluetooth
can be found on everyday items such as laptops, computers, cellphones
and their accessories. These days, the need for a more hands-free
alternative to the use of cellular phones
is important; not only for ease of use or increased productivity, but
for general safety. In some areas, the use of a bluetooth device while
driving has become a law to protect other drivers and the public from

To pair a Samsung Intensity cell phone with a Plantronics Explorer 245 headset, follow the 10 steps below:
1. Turn your cell phone on and your headset off.
2. On the Intensity, press the Menu button (the center round button) and from the main menu, go to Settings & Tools (in the bottom right corner).
3. Select item #3, Bluetooth Menu.
4. Select item #1, Add New Device.
5. If your Bluetooth radio is currently off, you'll be asked if you want to turn it on -- select Yes.
6. Turn on the Explorer headset. After a few seconds you should see either red and blue flashes or just blue flashes. If you see red and blue flashes, go on to step 7. If you see only blue flashes, hold the Call button down (the button on the side of the earpiece) for five or six seconds, until the LEDs begin to flash red and then blue.
7. On your cell phone, click OK on the screen telling you to place your device in discoverable mode.
8. The phone will search for Bluetooth devices in the area, and the Plantronics headset will appear at the top of the screen. It should be labeled "245Plantronics" or something similar. Once you see the headset appear on the screen, press the menu button to stop the search.
9. Press the menu button again to pair the two devices.
10. A message will appear once pairing has been completed, and you will be prompted to connect the phone to the headset. Select Yes.
The connection has now been established between the two devices, and you can use your Explorer 245 as a hands-free headset in conjunction with your cell phone. To see information about the headset (such as what services it offers, what its Bluetooth address is, or how long it has been paired to your phone) scroll down to its name on the phone's Bluetooth Menu and click the right option button to bring up the device's Options screen.
this took me nearly an hour to figure out, but here goes:
go to "settings icon" - tap "bluetooth" - turn it on - go to "accessibility" tab - make sure your phone has a "name" - then make sure "allow other devices to connect", "all devices" and "other devices can discover me" are selected - then go back to the "general" tab - tap on the "bluetooth manager" link - go to "active connections tab" - click on "menu" at the bottom right corner - click on "paired devices" when the menu comes up - click on "add".
Now quickly put your bluetooth headset into pairing mode and as soon as the device and passkey asking screen comes up, tap on the little windows "find" (or "search") icon next to the "device" field. once your phone detects your headset, it will take you back the device and passkey screen, where the name of your headset will now appear in the device field. all you have to do is input your device passkey.
Now go back to "bluetooth manager" screen, where in your "my shortcuts" tab, your "hands-free connection" icon should be present. if it's not, then click on "new" in the bottom left corner and select the "hands-free/headset setup". On the screen that comes up, select "next" which will take you to the next screen. Here your headset device icon will be present with a small red checkmark beside it. Tap this and your phone will establish a connection with your headset. It will then take you back to "bluetooth manager" - "my shortcuts" screen where your "hands-free connection" icon will now be green with two small arrows beside it pointing towards each other. If you click on the active connections tab, you'll see your headset device icon there. Also, a pair of headphones will pop up on your windows toolbar at the very top.
After this setup, to ensure your phone's security, go back to the "settings" - "bluetooth" - "accessibility" tab. Select "paired devices only" under the Accessibility heading, and deselect "other devices can discover me".
Hope this helps everyone...so far this is the only non-user friendly feature of the phone that I've come across, rest is pretty good and highly customizable.
