    I got a Motorola HS850 bluetooth headset and the ear piece don't work, the mic works but when someone calls i can't hear them

  • jwalkerh Dec 12, 2007

    I had a Motorola HS850 paired with Motorola V551 cell phone. I am hearing impaired but could hear very well with this unit however, my callers could not hear me. I would have to switch back to the phone while driving. I also had reception problems with my cell phone in my home or driving up to my home. I have used Motorola products for years and I believe the problem is with Motorola. I have switched products and no more problems.

I bought a new HS850 and guess what, I got this hearing problem on the very first day ...phew ! I did the pairing with my Motorola A1200 phone and it worked for once, even the sound was coming in the earpiece and then I put it to charge for the first time and once done, I again started it up and it got connected with the phone and after that there was no sound in the ear piece. I was going nuts....about what could be the problem.

So i decided to delete the earlier paired profile from my phone and do the pairing again and guess what...It Worked....:) So you can try that out too....

Need instructions for connecting ear piece to iphone 4

Hi,to complete the look of a tech-savvy, iPhone-using individual, you must have a Bluetooth headset to accompany it. You can pair any Bluetooth headset with an iPhone. The Motorola HS850 is no exception to this. Both Motorola and Apple's Bluetooth set-up process is fast, so you'll be talking with people through your new Bluetooth on your iPhone in a matter of minutes.


Charge the Motorola HS850 headset fully before attempting to pair. Usually, it takes two to three hours to charge the headset.

Press and hold the "Call" button (has a phone icon on it) on the headset for six to 10 seconds. The outside LED light will turn on indicating that the phone is in pairing mode.

Choose "Settings" on the iPhone homescreen.

Select "General," then "Bluetooth."

Select to turn Bluetooth on.

Wait for the phone to search for in-range devices.

Select theMotorola HS850 from the list of devices.

Enter the headset passkey to complete the pairing. By default this is "0000."

Have a nice day..

Motorola Bluetooth HS850 Pairing Mode

This worked great for me... I got the headset in "pairing" mode by following these instructions. Then set my BB Curve 8350i to "discover" bluetooth devices. It discovered the headset and asked for a PIN number... one of the other articles I read said the pin was "0000" so I put that in and - PRESTO - it works

    Problems with my motorola hs850

    Set your volume to mid range. If it continues you'll need to return it or exchange it. The voice pickup sencer in the bluetooth is defective. Or the phone needs an upgrade.

    Motorola HS850-

    almost all of moto bluetooth headset get this problem. i think H680 is much better that HS850 or H700. i'm using RAZR2 V8 and almost all BT headset have static problem. So i end up with korean's and french's BT headset which have much lower static.
