Question about LG Chocolate Clamshell VX8600 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Bluetooth problem... My LG VX8600, when I setup the bluetooth menu to visible, after several minutes it will become hidden by itself. Did anyone have a way to set it for visible until I change it back by myself? And I tried two bluetooth earphone. Neither of them worked. One is Phillips VOX130/17, the other is Plantronics Voyager 510 Bluetooth, it's frustrating. If anyone have a good idea to solve the problem, please feel free to email me. Thanks a lot.

Re: Bluetooth problem...

I'm not sure about LGs, but I know you can't set a Motorola to be permanently visable, it hides itself after 1 min. LGs might do something similar. Either way, you only need it to be visible to pair it. Once it is paired with the headset or "bluetooth earphone", the phone doesn't need to be visable to connect to paired devices. To pair a bluetooth headset, refer to the manual of the headset on how to put it in "Pairing Mode", then go on the phone to add a new device with bluetooth, and find the headset. There will probably be a code you need to input on the phone. It should also be in the manual of the headset.

Re: Bluetooth problem...

My husband just got his chocolate 3 and it will not stay connected to his blue tooth. From what I read on other postings it is a problem with the software in the phone. He will be taking his phone back to a dealer asap to get it replaced. He is a truck driver and must have his phone be blue tooth compatible.

Bluetooth connects to LG Vu phone but does not work

I would suggest taking the battery out when the phone is powered on. Replace the battery and try to re-pair the set.

If that doesn't work, then its likely the bluetooth module in your phone is broken. You can validate this by pairing the bluetooth with another handset.

hey! i also had the same problem. i could only send files through bluetooth but couldn't receive them but recently i found out it's becuase my handset common memory was full. so if you delete some files u have on ur handset memory..u may be able to receive files again. this worked for me but im not sure if you have the same problem as i did. i thought that the files received on bluetooth would go to my mircoSD memory chip thingy but apparently it didnt. SOOOO if ur able to send files through bluetooth it should mean that the bluetooth connection itself isn't the problem....i think. it's just ur handset common memory that is full. u can go check the memory space by going to Setting ->Memory manager ->Hanset common memory.  Hopefully this helps!

Trying to pair with bluetooth

I have a Motorola H500 headset & was having the same problem. I think it's all in the timing. With the headset off, hold down the Call button for 6 to 10 seconds until the light stays lit--solid light, not blinking. This is when the headset is in "discoverable" mode. Immediately access the settings & tools menu on the phone, then to the bluetooth communication settings to locate & pair the phone with the headset. Hope this helps with your devices.
