Question about Nokia BH-218 Bluetooth Headset
I have tried with the ear piece in and out of the cradle with the same result. The blue light that is supposedly to appear according to the manual, doesnt, is the unit faulty?
My guess is you don't have the headset in pairing mode. The instructions below are from the instructions for the BH-218"
Before using the headset, you must pair and connect it to a compatible phone.
1. Make sure your headset is switched off and your compatible phone is on.
2. If you've never paired the headset with a device, or you've cleared the pairings,
switch the headset on.
If you've previously paired your headset with another device, press and hold the multifunction button
for 5 seconds.
Pairing mode is switched on, and a blue indicator light starts to flash quickly.
3. Within 3 minutes, switch Bluetooth on in your phone, then set it to search for
Bluetooth devices. For details, see the user guide of the phone.
4. On your phone, select the headset from the list of found devices.
5. If asked, type in the passcode 0000.
When the headset is connected to a phone, the Bluetooth indicator light flashes
You can pair your headset with 8 phones, but you can only connect it to 2 phones at
the same time.
With some phones, you may need to make the connection separately after pairing.
Tip: Can't connect the headset to a compatible phone? Make sure that the headset
is charged, switched on, and paired with the phone.

you can log on to the website and check for the compatible devices and see if your phones are among the supported devices.
also, it could be that your bluetooth headset is faulty and as a result cannot be detected, you can try searching for other bluetooth devices using your phone and if it does find them, then you can confirm that your headset is faulty or broken.
at this point, you can send it back to the store where you bought it from and get a replacement or you can send it for repairs.
hope this helped you? please rate

I see that you are having issue with your BT Nokia headset.
You mentioned that you are having issues connecting it to our PC.
You need to make sure that the Bluetooth settings on the computer is set to allow other devices to detect the computer to be able to get your Bluetooth Nokia headset working with your computer.
Look for the Bluetooth icon on the lower right side of the taskbar somewhere near the time then right click on it then select open bluetooth settings, it should open up a window for the Bluetooth on your computer then look for "Allo other devices to detect this computer" and put a check on it, click on Apply or OK, this should make your computer be detected by other BT devices such as your Nokia headset.
I hope this will help.
Have a nice day,
