I have a plantronics 340 bluetooth headset, which would atutomatically connect to my old phone as soon as i turned it on. it seems like that ought to be possible now that the bluetooth is "hooked up" to the razr, but i have to go into a menu during each call and choose an option to connect to the bluetooth. after several prompts, i have to enter the bluetooth passkey each time i want to get it connected. isn't there a more "automatic" way to connect? i thought i could just turn on the headset and it would connect to my phone.
There should be a easy way to connect, with some headsets it is and others there is not. The headset you talked about does this for you. The newer ones for security reasons will not do this automatically. With almost everyone going wireless and using bluetooth headsets everywhere, you have to through the extra measures. So, when you have your phone on always activate or enable "bluetooth". If you are going to be using the same headset, save it in your phone so that is qucker and easier to connect next time.

I assume you are using a Plantronics wireless headphone? ensure your phone is on and Bluetooth is switched on in your phone settings.
hold the button on the headphone until the light starts flashing, if this does not happen ensure the headphone is charged. in Bluetooth options on your phone ensure your phone is set to "can be seen by other devices" and then use "scan devices" to find your headphone, if you see Plantronics in the list select it and press "pairing" this will then connect the headset to the phone. once paired, everytime your headset is on and Bluetooth is on, you need to just press the button on the headset and it will automatically connect to your phone.(as long as the headset name is not deleted from the Bluetooth list)
If your phone does not show in the headset in the Bluetooth list, keep the phone scanning and press the button on the headset to start the light flashing this is now causing the headset to search for the phone. once the headset shows in the phone list do as above.
If you see your Bluetooth listed on your phone: delete it then turn
your Bluetooth off. Turn off your phone and take the battery out of your
phone for a few moments, reinstall the batter and turn your phone back
on. Turn your Bluetooth back on and try repairing them again.
Did you do the steps listed here? This is the Plantronics information. Your new headset includes Plantronics QuickPair technology to simplify the Bluetooth setup process. The rst time you turn your headset on, your headset automatically enters pairing mode for 10 minutes. Once paired successfully, your headset stays on for instant use. If not sucessfully paired after 10 minutes, your headset automatically powers o. When you turn the headset on again, it automatically goes into pairing mode until successfully paired with a Bluetooth phone. To pair your headset for the rst time: Turn ON the Bluetooth feature on your phone. TIP: For most phones, select Settings/Tools > Connections > Bluetooth > On. See your phone’s user guide for more information. Press and hold the call control button to turn on your headset. (The indicator ashes red/blue to show that the headset is on and in pairing mode.) TIP: If you don’t see the red/blue ash, press and hold the call control button to turn your headset o, and then press and hold the call control button again until you see the red/blue ash. Use the commands on your phone to locate your headset. TIP: For most phones, select Settings/Tools > Connections > Bluetooth > Search > 520Plantronics. See your phone’s user guide for more information. When prompted for the passkey, enter 0000. When pairing is successful, the indicator on your headset ashes blue. Your headset is now connected and ready to use.
1.Press and hold the Multifunction button in the middle of a boom headset while the headset is closed. The light will glow blue.2.Open the boom microphone and the blue light should remain on.

Tips: 1.Provided you set the Bluetooth power to "On" after the initial connection has been made, the phone will automatically re-connect to the headset. 2.To set the Bluetooth power on - Press Menu, Select Settings, then Connections, then Bluetooth link, scroll to Setup and select that.

I just figured out how to reset the 3XXPlatronics 330. The guest might of of made it a little confusing for some:
1) TURN OFF bluetooth head set by holding the volume control button for about a few seconds until it flashes blue.
2) Make sure your phone's bluetooth is on and on discover mode.
3) Turn on the blue tooth head set (NOTE: HOLD DOWN THE VOLUME BUTTON UNTIL IT FLASHES BLUE AND RED)
4) Lastly, go into your search menu to find new bluetooth devices. The device should show up as "3XXPlantronics" (PASSKEY IS 0000).
P.S. Keep in mind this worked for me, but if it doesn't work feel free to email me at; firstname.lastname@example.org
MIne connects to my phone and tells me it is connected but i do not get the headset picture on my mobile anymore, and when i make calls it isnt connected I still have to pick my phone up and use that.. Why should I have to do that when I bought it for that specific reason, I bought a Blueant one and it works perfect for three months..
Fix you problems plantronics and STOP using computer generated feedback!!! And get someone with more than half a Brain to sort this out.
Go to this website, and scroll down to Interactive Bluetooth Pairing Guide. (Plantronics 330 - V555 doesn't show 320 and instructions will be similiar). Click on Interactive Bluetooth Pairing Guide and a tutorial will walk you through the steps. Have headset and phone together when you do this and both must be charged. Hope this was helpful. Pam
