reset the device. turn it off, press and hold the volume plus and the green button until you hear a siren. turn off the st3 and turn it back on. choose the language desired then search for devices using your phone
Unfortunately, yes, that is normal for simplex operation. The actual phone link, if cellphone, is often simplex. and you're attempting to use an additional simplex device on top of the cellphone's. Full-duplex requires a separate transmit and receive frequency pair for each end of the conversation, or link..
The way analog phones and many radio services get around this is by using "repeaters". These receive on one channel and transmit on another) for each conversation. When the two separate devices (your cellphone and the Bluetooth headset you're using) are combined, and with both needing it's own TX/RX pair), the effects you described are multiplied by two.
Did you put the device into pair mode before hand? To do this with the device off hold the green button until you hear a language loop, when you hear the language of your choice immediatly let go of the green button and press it once right away. You will hear a message about your phones bluetooth menu, at that point go to settings/general/bluetooth on your iphone and the ST3 should show up click on it and repair-reconnect. If it does not show up in the bluetooth menu then power off your iphone then power it back on. I have heard this issue a few times since Apple released OS 4.2. There does not seem to be a easy solution if a power cycle does not fix the issue. The only way I have been able to fix this problem is to restore the firmware on the unit through Itunes as Apple as usual released a firmware which causes more problems that features it implements... Sigh
First off the device you are referring to is a ST3 and not a Z9. What you need to do is put the device into pair mode prior to searching in your iphones bluetooth menu, to do this with the device off hold down the green button until you hear a language loop. When you hear the language of your choice let go of the green button and press it once right away. You will hear a message about your phones bluetooth menu, when you hear that go to your Iphones bluetooth menu and select the ST3 and it should work.
Go to this page, it will answer any question concerning the blueant .. including pairing to your phone .. activating your blueant etc http://www.blueant.com.au/index.phpalso gives you step by step instructions on codes, pairing etc
Make sure that the headset and the phone are both are in "pairing" mode. Even though the iPhone's bluetooth is on you will have to select the headset from the phones bluetooth menu. To get the headset into pairing mode press and hold the "+" sign for 3 seconds. Hope this Helps!
The other guest, has hit a very good point have you tried checking your mic? If not try changing it out. If you still have a problem do this; get a power meter and connect it to your antenna jack of the CB and the other end of the meter to the antenna this will put the meter in series with the CB and the antenna. then try to key the mic and speak, if the meter indicates 4watts PEP then the transmit function is working and you are getting out. The second test is to set an RF generator to 27.185MHz at -123 dbm or 5.1x-16 watts and use a 1kHz tone to modulate the signal, couple the signal to the antenna with an insulated wire loop and this will allow you to test if you can receive signal. These two tests will show if you can transmit and receive. I believe the problem is with your mic, but I have provided two tests that will prove if you can transmit and receive, so you are ready to test. Let me know how it goes.
