Re: PAIR KEY FOR MOTOROLA s9
Bluetooth headsets have their passkey hardcoded by their manufacturers. So, I'm afraid it is not suitable to be changed. However, once any two bluetooth devices are paired, their link is encrypted. You see, you put your headset in pairing mode only when you want to pair it to a specific device of yours (i.e. phone, PC, etc.). Once they are paired to each other, third devices won't be able to get into that connection.
Just my 2 cents...

Hey Michael. Are the s9s already paired with another device? If so.... You might want to try turning off both the s9 and the device that's already paired. Then try repairing new device with s9s. Good luck.
When using your S9 for the first time, follow these steps to pair (connect) to your Phone: Important: If you are pairing separate Bluetooth devices for handsfree calls and streaming music, it is recommended that you pair your S9 with your handsfree device (phone) first. 1 Ensure the Bluetooth feature is enabled (turned on) in your phone.
2 Turn on your S9 by pressing and holding (|) button until the indicator light flashes three times in blue. After a few moments, the indicator light will be steadily lit in blue to indicate your S9 is in pairing mode. 3 From your device, perform a Bluetooth device discovery/search. . When pairing your S9, use the following steps to perform a device discovery from your phone: After accessing the Settings Menu, go to bluetooth. to add a new device, tap [New]. 1. Tap [New] key to search the device that can be connected and which is within range. The phone lists Bluetooth devices it finds. b Select Motorola S9. c Select OK or Yes to pair your S9 with your phone. d Enter the passkey: 0000 e Select OK.
When your S9 successfully pairs and connects to your device, the indicator light displays blue with 10 quick purple flashes. If wearing your S9, you will also hear an audio tone indicating successful pairing and connection to your device. 4 To verify your S9 has successfully established a handsfree calling connection with your phone, dial a phone number you want to call and press the Send key on your phone. When successfully connected, you hear ringing on your S9. A Bluetooth Handsfree Phone (HFP) connection is now established with your phone
You cannot avoid the problem with an alternative code, to my knowledge. You will find that almost every bluetooth uses the default code, 0000 , and the reason they use a code at all is to identify the devices (phone and headset, or whatever) to let them chat amongst themselves and determine what they are going to use for encryption keys for their future communication at the exact moment when they are first "paired". They only set up this encryption when they first handshake, but it ensures that every time you turn them on in the future, they hand-shake in a manner that does not allow your conversation to be overheard by spies. In other words, they digitize and scramble your speech using encryption tools that depend on the initial codes they calculated when you first "paired" them.
So the idea of the pass code is not to prevent the unit from being used by a thief, and the passcode is always the four digit number 0000
I wanted to answer this for anyone else who found this question using a web search. The answer is 0000 (four zeros) when asked for the pass code. It's the default code. And your lock code (until you change it) is by default, the last four digits of your phone number i.e. 555-444-5555 (5555 would be your code)
