Re: Bluetooth Issues

I am thinking that it is prompting your for the "bluetooth" security code that allows the connection between the 2 devices (code is "0000")....

Make sure in OPTIONS / SECURITY / GENERAL SETTINGS, that you did not accidently enable a password.

Hope that helps! :)

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.

Support for Bluetooth headsets is the real innovation here. Though BlackBerry devices have packed in phones for years, holding them up to your head has always felt and looked awkward. Because the 7290 paired easily with our Logitech and Nokia Bluetooth headsets, that's now much less of an issue. Unfortunately, the 7290 doesn't support voice dialing, so you'll still have to pull out your BlackBerry in order to dial. There's also no support for the Bluetooth dial-up modem profile and no Bluetooth file transfer. Phone calls are clear, although there's no speakerphone.
The 7920 does not have a speakerphone.

Blackberry curve won't pair with my bluetooth headset


Try the following. Hope this helps.


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.

Your bluetooth needs to be in pairing mode. Depending on what model bluetooth there are several methods to put it in pairing mode. the most common is pushing and holding the main button until a light changes color.

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.
