I paired the Motorola H700 with my Blackberry Pearl 8100, but the headset still doesn't work. I selected the H700 device on my phone and hit connect, but I get the following message: "Handsfree connection to Motorola H700 failed." What am I doing wrong?
I lost by Motorola H700 Wireless headset that was paired with my Blackberry. Someone gave me a new Motorola H700 to use, but my Blackberry will not recognize it. What do I do?

RIM has a new OS for the 8100 pearl (OS 4.3). This OS supports A2DP streaming which is necessary for listening to music with bluetooth headphones. The OS is out in beta version now and supposedly available on bit torrent. I hear that AT&T will release the OS for their phones in April or May.
Hold down the call from an off position until the button lights up in purple color. Flips open the microphone boom. The purple light stays on. Click OK to start the pairing with Blackberry Pearl. When asked for passkey, key in 4 zeroes then press enter. Pairing should be complete from this point.
Steps to pair a H700 headset with any bleutooth pone:
Make sure the H700 fully chared (very important)!!
Make sure the microphone boom is folded closed, i.e. power is off!
Hold the call button for 1-5 seconds until the light is steady lit purple
Flip out the microphone boom, the light should stay lit purple!
Now you are ready to pair the headset with your phone, so follow the pairing instructions of your phone.
Note: When prompted for the Passkey; it is most likely 0000 but the correct Passkey should be on the headset accessory instructions.
I must add that indeed my headset on occation (once or twice every three months) also loses its connection with the blackberry (a 8703e) . At which time I have to remove the headset from my phone bluetooth device list, and start the above described steps to pair my headset with the phone again.
