The S9 pairs and connects with the 8830. However, there is no sound coming from the headset.
Using the headset, I can change tracks for the songs.
It appears that the 8830 simply does not recognize the S9 as a stereo sound sink.

Re: Motorola S9 and Blackberry 8830
To stream music to the S9 the phone needs to support stereo bluetooth or in other words A2DP. The Blackberry 8830 unfortunately doesn't support this and only supports regular mono bluetooth. This is why no music is heard from the S9.

I have a Sprint Blackberry 8830 and a Motorola H500 headset which I no longer have the instructions for. My Blackberry wouldn't find the device. Through trial and error I found that, to pair the headset with the Blackberry, I had to press and hold the call button until it was solid blue, then the Blackberry found it. The passcode is 0000 for this one.
When using your S9 for the first time, follow these steps to pair (connect) to your Phone: Important: If you are pairing separate Bluetooth devices for handsfree calls and streaming music, it is recommended that you pair your S9 with your handsfree device (phone) first. 1 Ensure the Bluetooth feature is enabled (turned on) in your phone.
2 Turn on your S9 by pressing and holding (|) button until the indicator light flashes three times in blue. After a few moments, the indicator light will be steadily lit in blue to indicate your S9 is in pairing mode. 3 From your device, perform a Bluetooth device discovery/search. . When pairing your S9, use the following steps to perform a device discovery from your phone: After accessing the Settings Menu, go to bluetooth. to add a new device, tap [New]. 1. Tap [New] key to search the device that can be connected and which is within range. The phone lists Bluetooth devices it finds. b Select Motorola S9. c Select OK or Yes to pair your S9 with your phone. d Enter the passkey: 0000 e Select OK.
When your S9 successfully pairs and connects to your device, the indicator light displays blue with 10 quick purple flashes. If wearing your S9, you will also hear an audio tone indicating successful pairing and connection to your device. 4 To verify your S9 has successfully established a handsfree calling connection with your phone, dial a phone number you want to call and press the Send key on your phone. When successfully connected, you hear ringing on your S9. A Bluetooth Handsfree Phone (HFP) connection is now established with your phone
assuming you have bluetooth installed on your laptop,
1) you have to disable the bluetooth pairing of your s9 with another device that you may have paired with it earlier - like a mobile phone. disconnect previously paired devices first.
2) turn on the bluetooth feature on your pc and ask it to "search" for devices. assuming your s9 is on standby, your pc should be able to "locate" and pair with it assuming the s9 is within an arms length distance from the computer.
3) make sure that the s9 is completely charged to eliminate that power issues as well
From Falvey86: Hold the headset start button for about 10 to 20 seconds, the lights will start flashing red and blue, then the search for Bluetooth devices from phone and it will appear as: S9. press "connect", a window will appear, place the password "0000", that should do the trick!!!!
