Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 Smartphone

Blackberry curve won't pair with my bluetooth headset

I just switched from a blackberry Pearl to a Curve. When trying to set up my bluetooth options I have found that the Curve can't find my bluetooth headset to pair with it, and although the Curve has paired with the Pearl and my Husband's Samsung phone, I can send items via the bluetooth, but the Curve will not receive items via the bluetooth from either of the phones. I have been over and over the options allowing the Curve to "Trust" the other phones and allowing the Curve to be detectable. What am I missing? Or is there a problem with this feature on my new phone?

    I have a Blackberry Curve and Motorolla Bluetooth. My Curve can not find my Bluetooth so I can not add it as a device. Why not? I was able to pair the Motorolla with the Blackberry Pearl.

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!!!

I bought a used Blackberry Curve 8900 recently and have tried to pair it with my BT112 Bluetooth Headset without success. The BT112 has successfully paired up with my Blackberry Pearl and my Blackberry Tour in the recent past, so I know that it is working properly. The Curve can't detect the BT112 and the pairing signal from the BT112 does not seem to connect to the Curve. The Bluetooth is enabled on my Curve. What do I need to do now?

I'd suggest backing up your contacts and other info and then doing a wipe on the phone. To do a wipe to go to...

Options -> Security Options-> General Settings -> click the menu key and you will see the option for wipe.

If that doesn't work I'd do an OS update on the phone.

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 won't pair with sony bluetooth


Can you try these steps even if you have already failed - so it is clear exactly where your problem lies and how your blackberry is behaving.

Turn on your Sony device and activate the bluetooth feature, set it to pair or search for a device (if this is a headset, it will search automatically, once it is turned on)

On your Blackberry choose the bluetooth option and enable

At your next prompt, when asked ensure your bluetooth device is in pair mode - Say Yes

It will go through a searching for devices screen

Here you will find a list of bluetooth devices in your range that can be paired - (these devices should include your sony)

If at this point you get a message stating no new devices found - Say Ok

Do you see a list of previously paired devices which includes your Sony?!

Let me know how you get on with the above, and what if any error message you receive.

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.

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.
