When it is turned off, hold the main button in for 4 seconds until the light flashes red, the release. It should flash red and blue. This means it is in pairing mode.

How can I make working plantronics 232 with my verizon blackberry 9650


The headset must be put into pairing mode. Once you make your Blackberry phone discoverable, then put the Plantronics 232 headset into pairing mode by pressing the call control button until it flashes red and blue. If it's not flashing red and blue, then it is not in pairing mode. Here is a link for the pairing instructions for the 230 headset (which is the same for the 232):

Plantronics Explorer 220 no longer connects to Blackberry Curve


You can have the two devices connected, but still get your sound through the phone. During a call (maybe call your voicemail or an automated number, just to make a call) try holding down the answer/end button on the earpiece until it beeps, and see if the sound switches from the phone to the earpiece. You can also try pressing the speakerphone button on your phone during a call to switch the call to the earpiece.

Did either of those ideas work?

Plantronics 330 no longer pairs with Blackberry 8310.


I believe that the bluetooth symbol that you see indicates that bluetooth is enabled on your Blackberry, not that you are connected to a device (at least that's how mine works).

Here are some suggestions:

First, if you are on BES, check with IT to make sure no changes were made (they can block bluetooth).

Next, make sure you are using the most current software. It should be: v4.5.0.108. If you are using an older version, definitely update your software because the 8310 is known to have bluetooth issues.

Do you see your headset listed on "paired devices"? If so, I suggest that you delete it before upgrading the software.

Once your headset is no longer listed (or if it wasn't in the first place), re-connect it to your Blackberry as follows (apologies if you already know this part):

1. Re-set your headset:
Turn the headset off.

Press and hold down the control button.
After 6-10 seconds, the light will flash blue, then it will flash red, then blue.
Release the button when you see the red/blue.

2. On your Blackberry:

Open "Options"
Open "Bluetooth"
Open menu within Bluetooth
If not already on, click "Enable Bluetooth"
Open Bluetooth menu again.
Open "Options".
Turn "Discoverable" to "Yes"

Open the Bluetooth menu a 3rd time.
Click on "Add Device".
Your Blackberry will search for your headset.
If you are prompted for a Passkey, use 0000 (that's 4 zeros).
After a short time, your headset will appear on your Blackberry.
It should appear as Plantronics 3xxx.

Make sure you go back into Bluetooth Options and change "Discoverable" back to "No".


Once you have established a new connection with upgraded software, you should have no trouble with "Transfer Address Book".

Hope this solves your problem.

I have a blackberry curve and am wanting to pair my bluetooth HS850 to it. Please help!


There actually is a trick to the HS850 - flip the boom closed, then hold down the button just until the light holds solid - IMMEDIATELY after it does flip the boom open and this should keep the light solid. Then on your cell/device search for bluetooth devices - you should be able to find it now. Passkey for most devices is 0000.
