What you have to do is set your plantronics device on pairing mode. To do that, you have to make sure the bluetooth is off. Then press and hold the main button until the light starts flashing red and blue.
After that, find the device with your cell phone.
Pin is usually 0000
And there you go

Any chance anyone can tell me if the Plantronics Explorer 390 will work with the audio on my iPhone 4? It works fine with calls and the like just not with anything else like games, music or podcasts....


The Explorer 390 headset does not support audio for games, music, or podcast. You will need to upgrade your Bluetooth to a model with A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) like the M20 or VoyagerPro+. Plantronics Bluetooth Headsets link included below. Note: Not all Bluetooth's listed on this link come with A2DP, check the product sheets on each headset. Here is the link to the Plantronics Bluetooth headsets.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

How to pair a Plantronics Explorer 245 Bluetooth headset and a Samsung Intensity...


To pair a Samsung Intensity cell phone with a Plantronics Explorer 245 headset, follow the 10 steps below:

1. Turn your cell phone on and your headset off.

2. On the Intensity, press the Menu button (the center round button) and from the main menu, go to Settings & Tools (in the bottom right corner).

3. Select item #3, Bluetooth Menu.

4. Select item #1, Add New Device.

5. If your Bluetooth radio is currently off, you'll be asked if you want to turn it on -- select Yes.

6. Turn on the Explorer headset. After a few seconds you should see either red and blue flashes or just blue flashes. If you see red and blue flashes, go on to step 7. If you see only blue flashes, hold the Call button down (the button on the side of the earpiece) for five or six seconds, until the LEDs begin to flash red and then blue.

7. On your cell phone, click OK on the screen telling you to place your device in discoverable mode.

8. The phone will search for Bluetooth devices in the area, and the Plantronics headset will appear at the top of the screen. It should be labeled "245Plantronics" or something similar. Once you see the headset appear on the screen, press the menu button to stop the search.

9. Press the menu button again to pair the two devices.

10. A message will appear once pairing has been completed, and you will be prompted to connect the phone to the headset. Select Yes.

The connection has now been established between the two devices, and you can use your Explorer 245 as a hands-free headset in conjunction with your cell phone. To see information about the headset (such as what services it offers, what its Bluetooth address is, or how long it has been paired to your phone) scroll down to its name on the phone's Bluetooth Menu and click the right option button to bring up the device's Options screen.

How to pair a Plantronics Explorer 245 Bluetooth headset and a BlackBerry Tour


The Plantronics Explorer 245 headset can be paired with most Bluetooth-capable phones and smartphones to enable hands-free phone conversations. To pair the headset with a BlackBerry Tour, follow the steps below:

Make sure the Plantronics headset is off before trying to pair the two devices. On your BlackBerry, scroll down to Manage Connections (the antenna icon) in your Home folder and click the trackball. From the list of connections, select Set Up Bluetooth. The Add Device box will appear, asking if you want to search or listen for a Bluetooth device.

At this point, turn your Explorer 245 on by sliding the on/off switch toward the microphone end of the earpiece. Once the device powers on (if you have it in your ear, you'll hear a few short tones) you should see repeating red and blue flashes from the LED lights on the side of the headset. If you only see blue flashes, hold down the call button (the side button) for a few seconds, until the lights start flashing red then blue.

Now, on your Tour, select Search. Bluetooth will be enabled if it's not already, and then the BlackBerry will search for nearby devices. When the headset appears on the list of devices found (it should read "245Plantronics" or something similar) select it. A box will appear letting you know that pairing is now complete, and asking if you want to connect to the headset. Select Yes.

Your BlackBerry Tour and Explorer 245 are now paired. If at any point you turn the headset off, turn the BlackBerry off, or turn the BlackBerry's Bluetooth feature off, the two devices will automatically reconnect when they are able. When you look at your list of paired devices on the BlackBerry, the Explorer headset will appear in bold to show that it is currently connected.

I have a nokia 5230 and a plantronics 360 bluetooth headset and i can't connect the headset to phone. what can i do?


You want to make sure there is no other bluetooth interference. Try turning off the phone and disconnecting the battery for few seconds and reconnecting. This helps to reset the phone. Then follow the pairing instructions found in the Plantronics Explorer 360 User's Guide (pages 3-5).

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

How to connect the plantronics explorer 233 ?


  • Make sure your Plantronics Explorer headset is fully charged and turned off.

  • Press and hold the call control button (the button on the face of the headset opposite the earbud) for six seconds. When the light begins flashing blue and red, the headset is now ready for pairing with your phone.

    Select the Menu on your cell phone. Once the menu is displayed, select Settings, then Bluetooth Menu.

  • Select the option to add a new device. This will both turn on Bluetooth capabilities in your phone and put it into a setting known as "Discovery mode." The phone should discover your Plantronics headset automatically and display "XXXPlantronics." ("XXX" represents the model series number, such as "320Plantronics.")

  • Select the Plantronics option on your phone. In many cases, the phone will automatically recognize the headset, but if you are prompted to enter a passkey, proceed to the next step.

  • Enter "0000" if you are prompted for a passkey. Your headset will flash blue once it is successfully paired with your phone. Once paired, the Bluetooth headset will automatically recognize your cell phone each time it is turned on

    CAN'T GET MY BLACKBERRY 8330 TO PAIR WITH MY


    Did you do the steps listed here?
    This is the Plantronics information.
    Your new headset includes Plantronics QuickPair technology to simplify
    the Bluetooth setup process. The rst time you turn your headset on, your
    headset automatically enters pairing mode for 10 minutes. Once paired
    successfully, your headset stays on for instant use.
    If not sucessfully paired after 10 minutes, your headset automatically
    powers o. When you turn the headset on again, it automatically goes
    into pairing mode until successfully paired with a Bluetooth phone.
    To pair your headset for the rst time:
    Turn ON the Bluetooth feature on your phone.
    TIP: For most phones, select Settings/Tools > Connections > Bluetooth > On.
    See your phone’s user guide for more information.
    Press and hold the call control button to turn on your headset. (The indicator
    ashes red/blue to show that the headset is on and in pairing mode.)
    TIP: If you don’t see the red/blue ash, press and hold the call control button to
    turn your headset o, and then press and hold the call control button again until
    you see the red/blue ash.
    Use the commands on your phone to locate your headset.
    TIP: For most phones, select Settings/Tools > Connections > Bluetooth >
    Search > 520Plantronics. See your phone’s user guide for more information.
    When prompted for the passkey, enter 0000.
    When pairing is successful, the indicator on your headset ashes blue. Your
    headset is now connected and ready to use.
