Question about Motorola Mobility H700 Wireless Headset

5 Answers

H700 will pair, but won't connect.

I was able to get it to pair with my phone, and the name would come up on the Bluethooth list.
But, whenever I try to get the two to connect, it will give me a "Connection failed" message.
The light will be flashing blue quickly, which means it's on stand-by mode, right?
I don't have any clue what to do.

    My boyfriend and I have the same bluetooth headset and the same phone. He accidentally took my bluetooth headset. Now both of ours won't work because my bluetooth headset is paired to his, and his to mine. My phone will not recognize his bluetooth. He is currently out of state and we don't know what to do except send our respective headsets..What else can we do???

    It will pair but wont connect.

    can't get my h700 headset to go into discover mode. everytime i flip the boom open, it goes straight to flickering blue. followed all steps and still not working. I have an LG chocolate phone and when it does somewhat recognize it, it says 'device unkown' and will not pair. how do your master reset the bluetooth earpiece? cause it seems like the only logical way to get this thing to work. it only stays purple when the boom is closed, never when it;s opened. So what now?

To successfully pair the Motorola 700 with the Centro:
Select Bluetooth from the Home screen.
Select "On".
Under "Visibility", select "Visible".
Now click "Setup Devices".
Click "Hands-free Setup"
On the Motorola earpiece, with the flip-out mouthpiece in the closed position, press and hold the multi button until ring around it glows purple. Flip open the mouthpiece.
Now click "Next" on the Centro's screen.
The Centro should find the Motorola. Hold the Motorola to the right side of the phone if you have difficulty getting the Centro to find it.
Once found, click the Motorola H700 listed in the window and click "OK".
The Centro will ask for the device password. Enter 0000. Be sure that the checkbox for "Add to trusted device list" is checked. Click OK.
The two devices should now be paired to work together and the Motorola's multi button should rapidly blink blue; NOW click "Done".
You will be taken to the Trusted Devices screen.
You will see your Motorola in the list of Trusted Devices. Click on it to highlight it, if it is not already highlighted.
Click the menu drop-down key (located to the right of the ALT key).
You will now see a drop-down at the top of the screen that says "Connect". Click the "palm" center button on your Centro.
NOW the two devices are connected. The phone name will now be bold, and a small Bluetooth icon will appear to the right of it.
When you click the Phone key on your Centro, you will see a tiny blue headphone symbol now at the top right of the screen where the Bluetooth icon used to be.

To use the earpiece:
Flip it open and hang it on your ear.
Dial the number you want to call on the phone.
Press the multi button once and now you should be connected via the earpiece.
To receive a call, when your Centro rings, press the multi button once.

It took me a few hours to figure it out. Hopefully you can do it in a few seconds.

If your Motorola H700 device has been recognized, but still won't work, then you need to manually connect (or force connect as per a previous post) the device to repair the connection. Once you have performed the manual connection, the pairing should function as normal and you do not have to manually connect again.

To manually connect the Motorola H700 to the Samsung Blackjack:
1. From standby screen press Start
2. Scroll and select Settings
3. Scroll and select Connections
4. Scroll and select Headset settings
5. If you have only one headset device you will see your headset listed and highlighted. If you have multiple headsets select the appropriate bluetooth device.
6. Press Menu and select Connect Handsfree.
7. You will get a message asking if you want to recognize the device and for a password to establish a secure connection. The default password for the H700 is 0000.

This should reconnect the device.

Well, I was having the same problem with my H700 that i wouldn't connect to my W880i. the instructions above are helpful. Once you try to connect to your bluetooth, it says "connection failed" so try this method to solve this issue. You have already added H700 to you phone, so close the boom(mic) and press the call button for few seconds until it trys purple and imediately open the boom and press connect from your phone. Your phone will give u a message that H700 is already added and connected, and thus it will automatically connect to your H700. you have to do it serval times in order to fully reboot the H700. I hope this helps!!

    Thank-you this took care of my problem.


Above was helpful when connecting H350 Motorola bluetooth to nokia 6103.....tried 5 times no luck, turned off the bluetooth setting then turned it back (re-boot) and it worked.

Posted on Dec 30, 2007

Had the same problem with my Nokia 6620 and MOT H700. Found the answer on a Palm Treo site, of all places:

First, Guest, after the master reset, the phone lost its pairing, but the H700 still thinks it is paired. That's why it won't pair again. To force the H700 to pair again you must:
1) close the mic boom
2) hold the call button until it glows purple
3) while still holding the call button, open the mic boom
4) then go through the pairing steps on your phone like normal

Apparently MOT headsets tend to require a "force connect" immediately after pairing in order for them to work. Your phone should have some option in the bluetooth settings menu to connect to a device manually. For my NOK 6620, I select the H700 item in the bluetooth list, click Options and then Connect.

IMMEDIATELY after pairing the H700 (and probably most other MOT headsets), manually connect to it using your phone. The connect should succeed (finally!) and then everything is hunky-dorey from then on. This appears to just be a one-time thing after pairing. I have not had to manually connect the headset since I got it to work.

Hope this helps.

I need to know the bluetooth pairing code for sanyo M1

Well I know for sure the default pin for the M1 is indeed 0000. However I cannot tell you what the pin would be for your specific bluetooth dongle. If I where you I would try 0000, 1111, 2222 and so on
  • As with all Bluetooth headsets, the H700 needs to be paired with the device before it can be used, which is done in pairing mode. In pairing mode, the H700 makes a transmission so that Bluetooth-enabled devices can pick up the device and connect to the headset. Once connected, no other device can connect with the Bluetooth headset. To enter pairing mode on the H700, open the headset boom located near the microphone. After a few seconds the indicator light will turn purple. Once purple, the H700 is in pairing mode.
Searching for the Device With the M1
  • Once the H700 is in pairing mode, have the M1 search for Bluetooth devices. To do this, press "MENU/OK" and choose "Tools," "Bluetooth," "Add New" and "Search." A list of Bluetooth devices will show up on the screen. Highlight "Motorola H700" and press "MENU/OK." Choose "Add to Trusted," enter "0000" and press "MENU/OK." The devices are now connected and ready to be tested.
Testing the Devices
  • Once the devices are connected, test that both the phone and the headset are working properly together. First, place the headset in your ear. Dial a number on the phone and press "Send." If you can hear ringing, the devices are connected properly and ready for use.
    If the connection was not successful, repeat the previous steps and try again. Make sure the indicator light is glowing purple and is steady. If you have connected the headset to a previous device, make sure that device is turned off so as not to interfere with the connection procedure. Once the other device is off, close and reopen the boom to enter pairing mode.

I have a h700 bluethooth and dont have a manual. what color should the light be when connecting to the phone, in use, and charging.

The indicator turns red when charging and turns green when fully charged. The headset will flash in purple when it is in discovery mode (mode where it is looking for a device to be paired with it). If it has already been paired with a device it is blue and then flashes blue when it is paired. The link for the manual is below.

Pairing h700 to sanyo s1

After your phone has found the H700 you have to tell your phone to pair with it. It will then ask for the code. Punch in 0000 and confirm. After a little bit the H700 will flash blue several times rapidly and then start blinking about every 5 or 6 seconds. It is then paired with your phone.

Purple light wont stay lit for pairing

Make sure the microphone is closed and the BlueTooth is off. Hold the button in until it turns purple. As soon as it does release the button and flip out the microphone. The purple light should stay lit all the time now. That is until the pairing process is done with the phone.

Motorola H700 Problems with BB Pearl 8100

Steps to pair a H700 headset with any bleutooth pone:

  1. Make sure the H700 fully chared (very important)!!
  2. Make sure the microphone boom is folded closed, i.e. power is off!
  3. Hold the call button for 1-5 seconds until the light is steady lit purple
  4. Flip out the microphone boom, the light should stay lit purple!

Now you are ready to pair the headset with your phone, so follow the pairing instructions of your phone.

Note: When prompted for the Passkey; it is most likely 0000 but the correct Passkey should be on the headset accessory instructions.

I must add that indeed my headset on occation (once or twice every three months) also loses its connection with the blackberry (a 8703e) . At which time I have to remove the headset from my phone bluetooth device list, and start the above described steps to pair my headset with the phone again.
