BLACKBERRY 9700 BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY

I have just acquired a new Blackberry 9700 (01May10). I am able to pair with other BT devices but cannot 'connect' with any of them. The 9700 seems to keep on waiting for a response from the other device and then the connection ends. I have loaded latest software on the 9700 and this did not help. I am an experienced user and have had numerous phones thry the years connecting them all to various BT devices without any problem. So far I have trie connecting to 2 different cellphones, my Sony VAIO PC and Mercedes Benz BT withou success. Can you please help?

    Hi,Instructions on how to pair blue tooth device with black berry.


    Pair Your Blackberry with a Bluetooth Headset



    Turn on Bluetooth headset and Blackberry hand-held.

    Enable the Bluetooth radio by going to the options window and clicking on Bluetooth. Click on Enable Bluetooth in that window.

    Add your Bluetooth headset to your Blackberry by clicking on Add Device in the Bluetooth window.

    Find and select the name of your Bluetooth headset from the list that appears. The Blackberry will search for all Bluetooth devices within range, so other devices might show up on the list.


    Click Activate Bluetooth device if you receive a call and the Bluetooth headset does not pick up automatically.



    Use your Bluetooth Headset with your Blackberry

    Make sure the Bluetooth radio on your Blackberry is turned on before you try to use your Bluetooth headset.

    Use the voice-dial feature to call contacts if your headset has that capability. Not all headsets support voice dialing, but more of the newer models do.

    Press the on/off button on your headset to end a call or use the end button on the handheld.



    Tips & Warnings

    Pair your Blackberry with any Bluetooth-enabled device using the same steps as those for connecting a Bluetooth headset.

    Remove your Bluetooth headset from the list of paired devices on your Blackberry by selecting and clicking on Delete Device in the Bluetooth window.

    Configure your Blackberry to connect to a paired Bluetooth headset without asking for authorization in the Bluetooth Device Properties window. That will allow your headset to automatically reconnect even if you take it out of range temporarily.

    Only configure a Bluetooth headset to your Blackberry once. Once you configure the pairing between the two devices, the settings are saved and you do not have to repeat the processes each time you use it.

    Turn off the Bluetooth radio on your Blackberry when not in use for security reasons.

    Adjust volume on your headset or hand-held to a comfortable level. Excess volume from in-the-ear headsets can cause hearing damage.

    Have a nice day .
