Hi rob-b

First check if your bluetooth is swithed on.

If this still doesn't work after switching the bluetooth on , then reset the phone and try again.

Hope this is of help.

    2. Turn on Bluetooth in your phone, Go to menu, [SETTINGS] > [CONNECTIVITY] > [BLUETOOTH] and press "Select"

    3. Choose [TURN ON] , press "Select"

    4. Choose [MY DEVICES], press "Select"

    5. Choose [NEW DEVICE], press "Select"

    6. Choose the headset to be paired and press ' Select '

    7. Enter the pass key '0000', press "Ok"

Remove all pairings and irt should work again

    Before proceeding remove and put back phone battery, so to reset the phone.
    Sometimes an installed pairing can cause troubles to the system, if you have paired devices remove first all pairing, and then do again pairing, usually this work.
    If the above did not work, then either you are not doing pairing procedure properly, or there is a problem with the paired device, or with your phone firmware, in this last case reinstall firmware.

Sending phone book from sony ericsson w580i to bluetooth mirror


Not 100% on this, but your Sony may only work with Sony bluetooth for this. I know they do such things to promote their sales. Since the actual Bluetooth communications protocol is the same for all phones, you'll be able to pair, but you may not be able to transfer your contacts.
