I had my HS850 working well... till I accidentally deleted it from my Motorola Razor. Now the headset only blinks at 3 second intervals. Closing the headset and pressing the multi-function button for 6 seconds will not get it back into pairing mode. Any suggestions?

Re: HS 850 won't go into pairing mode
Usually to solve some pairing problems shut off bluetooth completely(no lights) Push and hold button until bluetooth comes on,flashes then steady light,you may have to hold button for ten seconds or more.Then put phone in pairing mode.

Hi Jeanie: How to place a Motorola HS 850 bluetooth headset into paring mode: Close the boom to turn the unit off. Hold down the call button until the blue light comes on. While holding down the call button, swing the boom open. (Now you can let go of the call button.)
The headset is now in pairing mode, and you can search for it using your phone. When it asks for a PIN, use 0000.
Hope helps. Your feedback is important and I'll appreciate
your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about
There actually is a trick to the HS850 - flip the boom closed, then
hold down the button just until the light holds solid - IMMEDIATELY
after it does flip the boom open and this should keep the light solid.
Then on your cell/device search for bluetooth devices - you should be
able to find it now. Passkey for most devices is 0000.
perhaps it is in "mute mode" which can be activated on the headset itself by simultaneously pressing both the up and down volume buttons.
Also, have you tried deleting the device from the phone you are using before you pair it up again?
finally is there any firmware/software update available for the phone? This can be the case frequently with bluetooth problems with Blackberry devices (I know this from painful experience with this same headset).
