Try another BT headset and you can also try reflashing the firmware on the phone.

Hi, you can use the below instruction to know to pair with blue tooth..


How to Pair (Connect) a Blue tooth Headset to Your Phone

So you've heard of this new thing called "blue tooth..." 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 Blue tooth cellular phone
* A Blue tooth 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 blue tooth menu.

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

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

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

On Sam sung phones: **Blue tooth 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 "Pass-code", which is a 4 digit number. Headsets will ALWAYS have 0000 (four zeros) as a pin or pass-code. I have never encountered a headset with a different number as a pass-code. 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 blue tooth 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.

How to connect a (Motorola) Blue Tooth headset to a mobile phone!


The following procedure is dependent to the phone in use! However it is mainly for Motorola brand but it works with many others too!
1. Turn on your mobile phones bluetooth function and go to search for new devices menu.
2. On the headset, From turned off state, Try holding down the power button for at least 5 seconds.
- The light should stay constantly on (or in other brands flashining very fast) which means the headset is in receiving/searching state!
3. search in your mobile phone for blue tooth devices(the phone and headset shouldn't be more than 5 meters away from each other )
4. When you find your blue tooth headset, chose it and hit "connect" or "pair" with the device!
5. you will be asked for a pin, put in "0000" and ok!

now your headset should be paired with your phone (the light flashes slowly) and will be ready to receive calls!

Best wishes

I wanne play my music via bleutooth but i dont find how i need to do dhat


Bluetooth technology makes possible sound transmittion to devices without the wired connections from the device out puting the sound out put gagdget. The bluetooth technology would only perform with devices that have that functionality. For example, once the device acquired on retail has indication of being developed to handle blue tooth technology also known as wireless connectivity, simply use the device settings to enable bluetooth functions. keep in mind that, blue tooth technology workswith only blue tooth gadgets. for example, a blue tooth phone requires a bluetooth ear piecees before functionanlity can be assumed with the settings. Once decided that each devices wanting to perform a blue tooth connectivity are designed for that function, use the settings function either on the menu area to set the wireless connectivity like also known. Remember, wireless cannot access another device that does not provide signals. in other words, once each devices setting are enabled, a signal should appear maybe blue light indicating blue tooth signal has been detected.The functions of thead set requires attempting to listen to any sound during the set up process. The entire process of setting bluetoothh should not be tasking.
checks to perform 1. make sure each device is designed to handle wireless signal recognistion also known as blue tooth technology 2. the devices may need to be set to allow access from the particular devices, a function that was design so that not all signals could be received by your heard piece. In the sitaution of which absence could be noice generation interfering the receiver and possibly preventign setthings

Bluetooyh not working


Hi,

the blue tooth has a solution.

It is in two ways.

Either the the blue tooth is not pairing well with other devices,

or

The blue tooth is corrupted.

When pairing phones together, make sure you pair the phone properly before you can use the blue tooth with other phones, because if you don't pair properly with another device, you will not be able to send or receive any data.

If the blue tooth is corrupted all you need to do is to flash the phone, that is the only way to restore the blue tooth back to be working.

Have a nice day.

Can't set up blue tooth


Strangely enough I went to the website where I purchased the blue tooth. It recommended holding down the button for 8 seconds as opposed to the 3 or 4 listed in the manufacturer's instructions. When I did this it found my phone. The pairing worked fine and now so does the blue tooth.

Blue tooth working very slowly


Blue tooth data transmission is slower compared to when done through a data cable.If the blue tooth devices are at fringe distances then there is every chance of a delay.Try keeping the devices as near as possible say within a meter or two.In such a situation both transmission and receiving is slower.

Blue tooth connectivete problem


Amii hello,

I would try shutting the phone off.
Then, remove the battery for a few seconds. Put everything back on, and turn on the device.
This is a known bug with many SE phones.
IF possible, I would also try to update your firmware.
