The pass code should be 0000 (four zeros), it's always been that for Plantronics headsets. Here are a couple of things to try. First, remember that newer phones are like small computers, so they may become corrupt over time and you may need to reset them every so often. Simply turn your phone off and remove again the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and turn it back on again. Second, you want to reset the headset. The attached user guide for the Plantronics Explorer 230 on page 7 will show you how to turn off / on the headset and page 4 will walk you through the pairing process. Remember to remove any previous bluetooth connections from your phone.

My friend gave me his bluetooth but i need the pin to connect it to my phone and i cant get it .how can I pair it to my phone without using a pin or making a new pin?


The pin or the passkey is "0000". To pair the SGH-T749 (Highlight) handset with a Bluetooth Device follow the steps below:
  1. Place the Bluetooth device in discoverable mode
  2. From the standby screen, press on Menu
  3. Press on Settings
  4. Press on Bluetooth
  5. Search for the Bluetooth device by pressing on Search, located at the bottom
  6. Press on Yes to Activate Bluetooth and start the search
  7. Press on the desired Bluetooth Device (if not shown press on the left or right arrows until displayed)
  8. If prompted, press the Passkey "0000" then press on OK
  9. You will get a brief message stating connecting followed by connected, if prompted press OK again
Note: The first time you try to pair with another handset, you and the owner of the other handset must enter the same PIN. Once the handsets have been paired, you will not need to use the PIN again.

My blackberry is asking for a code for my 760


The passkey for your headset is hardcoded to '0000' (four zeros).
If it fails to pair with your phone, turn it off. Then, press the PWR button for some 4 seconds, until its indicator light is steadily lit. It is in pairing mode now. Then, make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a little while, the HBM-760 should appear on-screen. Select it and make it connect. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing process is successful, your headset should enter the stand-by mode.
Anyway, if its user guide happens to be missing, you can download it from this location.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out soon.
Regards, Carlos

Pin 0000 and 1234 are not working. Is there some way to reset the pin, or a different pin I should try?


You must put you headset in pairing mode, prior to trying to pair it with your phone. In order to do it, starting with it turned off, press and hold the power button for some 10 seconds, until the indicator light is alternately flashing in red and blue. It is in pairing mode now. Then, bring your phone close to it, and make the phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a little while, your headset should appear on your phone' screen. Select it and make it connect. If a pairing code (or passkey, or PIN) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros) on your phone. If the pairing process is successful, your headset should enter the stand-by mode (blue light flashing every few seconds).

By the way, If its user guide happens to be missing, or, rather, you need further informations on how to pair it with your phone, feel free to download it from this location.

My bluetooth was connected to my phone and one


Start with your headset turned off. Then, press and hold the call button for 6 to 10 seconds, until the indicator light is steadily lit (it will flash as if it was being turned on, but don't release the button at that phase). It is in pairing mode. Now make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a while, the H500 will appear on-screen. Select it and make it connect. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing process is successful, the indicator light will flash rapidly, and then, it will enter the stand-by mode. Otherwise, turn your headset off, and go through the whole process again.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.

BT350 Bluetooth Headset Headset: the bluetooth's name won't come up...


Turn your headset off. Then, press and hold the answer/end button until the indicator light is solid lit in blue. It is in paring mode. Now, make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a while, the BT-350 should appear on-screen. Select it and make the application proceed. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing proces is successful, the headset should enter stand-by mode. The pairing process is timed.If you fail to complete it, you'll have to start it over, from the phone turned off phase. Once paired, whenever both your headset and your phone's bluetooth radios are turned on, they should connect to each other automatically. Otherwise, just press the answer/end button, and the link should be done again.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Cheers! Carlos

Im having problems a sanyo katana lx cel phone connecting to a vehicle bluetooth? what do i need to do?


In general, each bluetooth device you want to pair with your phone must be put in pairing mode (consult the device's user guide on how to do it). Then, you must make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a while, the device should appear in the phone's screen. It should be selected, and be commanded to proceed. In case a PIN (or passkey, or pairing code) is requested, enter 0000 (four zeros - it's the default PIN adopted by the vast majority of bluetooth devices' manufactures, but here again, consult the device's user guide, to be sure). In normal conditions, this pairing process should be performed just once. All subsequent connections between already paired devices should be made automatically, provided that both their bluetooth stacks are turned on.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Cheers! Carlos
