How to Pair (Connect) a Bluetooth Headset to Your Phone

So you've heard of this new thing called "bluetooth..." But what is it? ...And what does it do for me? It's wireless technology that can link your phone to a headset, computer, another phone, or in extreme cases, your car and home.

We'll just start with the basics and connect a headset to the phone



Instructions



Things You'll Need:

* A Bluetooth cellular phone
* A Bluetooth Headset




Blue tooth can simply be called "a generic wireless technology that can connect your phone, computer, headset, PDA, laptop, and any other enabled device to each other."

In essences, it was designed to be a universal wireless connector between devices.

Ok... Here we go.
Make sure that both your phone and new headset are charged up.


Since every brand of headset is different, please refer to the instructions for "Pairing", but I will tell you how the most common headsets pair.

By the way, "Pairing" just means "connecting". If you find it more simple, you can substitute the word.

On most headsets, from the Headset being off, hold down the answer/end button down until the indicator light(s) glow a solid color (usually blue). This may take up to 10 seconds. They might flash first, then after a couple more seconds, go solid on.


On your handset, find the bluetooth menu.

On most phones, go to the settings menu, then to "connections" and then "Bluetooth". You are looking for a link to "Add a new device".

On Motorola phones, it is in the "Handsfree" link. Select [look for new device] select this option, and hit "OK".

Nokia Phones: look for "search for new audio enhancements". Hit OK.

On Samsung phones: **Bluetooth menu might be under "tools"** Look for "Add new device". Hit OK.


The phone will search for a couple seconds. If your headset is in paring mode, it will show up on the phone either with the name of device or something like this [unknown headset] or [b2.c3.f4.56.a1] (called a MAC address).

Either way, select it, and hit OK.


The phone will now ask you for a "Pin" or "Passcode", which is a 4 digit number. Headsets will ALWAYS have 0000 (four zeros) as a pin or passcode. I have never encountered a headset with a different number as a passcode. I have been in wireless for 10 years, and still have not found a headset that has any different numbers.

Enter these four zeros and select "OK"


The headset and phone will connect to each other. The phone will display a message that will be something to the effect of:
"Connected to headset".

At this point, the phone MAY ask if you want to use the headset. This means all audio from phone calls would be routed to the headset rather than in to the phone's speaker or earpiece. Select yes, or ok.


Your headset is now set up for you to talk on like a REALLY important CIA agent or something of the like...

Keep in mind that when a call comes in, the phone will still ring like normal.

You can answer the call by either:

1. Pulling the phone out of your pocket and hitting the answer button.
2. Touching the answer/end button on your headset without reaching for you phone.

The range of your headset is up to 30 feet, in a direct line of sight.

If you go into another room, your range may be decreased.

If you do happen to go out of range, the call will be transferred back to the phone, and as soon as you are in range again, touch the answer button on the headset to let the phone know you're back in range. It will re-transfer the call back to the headset.


If you turn off the phone, or headset, you can repair them again simply by going to the bluetooth menu and selecting the headset again from the list. It will reconnect without a pass code and you are up and running again.

*** Please note that you do not have to hold down the answer/end button on the headset until it goes a solid on again.

Tips & Warnings

If you have difficulty, please feel free to contact me and I'll help you get things sorted out.

I cant use my jabra BT2070 what is the password for pairing update????


Hi leovy_naguit,

I see that you need information regarding your Jabra Bluetooth Headset.

*Once the Light on the Headset is constantly lit it means that it is ready for pairing.
*On you Mobile phone go to Bluetooth it should be detected as soon as you set your mobile phone's BT to be discoverable.
*Select Connect/Accept/OK or which ever options you Mobile Phone will provide when pairing with your headset.
*The pairing code will be " 0000 "

This should help you pair up your headset with any Mobile phone or device that uses Bluetooth.

I hope that this will be of help.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

I dont have the code to my bh-602


According to the manual it is 0000
I added an excerpt of the manual here :
Pair the headset
1. Ensure that your mobile device is switched on.
2. To pair the headset if it has not been previously paired with a device, switch on the headset. The headset enters the pairing mode, and the indicator light flashes blue quickly.
To pair the headset if it has been previously paired with another device, ensure that the headset is switched off, and press and hold the power key until the indicator light starts to flash blue quickly.
3. Activate the Bluetooth feature on the mobile device, and set it to search for Bluetooth devices. See the user guide of your device for instructions.
4. Select the headset from the list of found devices.
5. Enter the passcode 0000 to pair and connect the headset to your device. In some mobile devices, you may need to make the connection separately after pairing. See the user guide of your device for details. You only need to pair the headset with your device once. If pairing is successful, the headset appears in the menu of the mobile device where you can view the currently paired Bluetooth devices.
