My HS850 bluetooth headset is not holding much of a charge. It lasts about 15 - 20 minutes and then shuts off. I really don't notice the beeps warning me that the charge is getting low. My phone says bluetooth weak connection. I was trying to find the battery, but I can't locate it. What kind of battery does this take?
Do you think it is the battery or something else? How long does the battery last? It is about 2 years old.

Hi,to complete the look of a tech-savvy, iPhone-using individual, you must have a Bluetooth headset to accompany it. You can pair any Bluetooth headset with an iPhone. The Motorola HS850 is no exception to this. Both Motorola and Apple's Bluetooth set-up process is fast, so you'll be talking with people through your new Bluetooth on your iPhone in a matter of minutes.
Charge the Motorola HS850 headset fully before attempting to pair. Usually, it takes two to three hours to charge the headset.
Press and hold the "Call" button (has a phone icon on it) on the headset for six to 10 seconds. The outside LED light will turn on indicating that the phone is in pairing mode.
Choose "Settings" on the iPhone homescreen.
Select "General," then "Bluetooth."
Select to turn Bluetooth on.
Wait for the phone to search for in-range devices.
Select theMotorola HS850 from the list of devices.
Enter the headset passkey to complete the pairing. By default this is "0000."
There are several possible reasons for this problem. Try the following steps: - Shut off the headset. - Shut off bluetooth on your mobile phone and restart it. - Now bring your headset in pairing mode. How to do this should be explained in the manual. - go to something like "add new bluetooth device" on your phone. Something like that should be in the bluetooth menu. - the phone should find the headset now. Pair the devices using pincode 0000. That's normally the code for headsets.
you can use the headset now.
If one of the steps gives problems, just ask. Then I will try and give some more specific help. Please give some reaction also if this was helpful...
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.
NO YOU CAN NOT REPLACE THE BATTERY AS IT IS INTERNAL WHEN THE BATTERY IS GONE YOU HAVE TO BUY A NEW HEADSET UNLESS YOU ARE STILL IN THE 1ST YEAR YOU CAN SEND IT TO MOTOROLA FOR WARRENTY. IT SUCKS SO I OPTED TO TELL MOTOROLA THAT IF I HAD KNOW THIS I WOULD OF NEVER BOUGHT THE HEADSET FOR $120.00 AT THE TIME. THE DID A ONE TIME EXCHANGE FOR ANOTHER HEADSET AS I AM A LONG TIME CELL PHONE CUSTOMER. I TOLD THEM I DID NOT WANT THE SAME HEADSET SO THEY EXCHANGED FOR THE OLDER VERSION HEADSET THAT USSES ONE ENERGIZER AAA. WHICH LASTS FOR 30 HOURS TALK TIME OR 30 DAYS STANDBY. WHICH I FEAL IS WELL WORTH THE 1 ENERGIZER AAA BATTERY. MOTOROLA MAILED ME A BLUETOOTH HEADSET H300. WHICH I THOUGHT WAS NICE OF THEM. BUT I ASTILL THINK THEY NEED TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE THAT THERE BLUETOOTH HEADSETS THAT THE BATTERYS CAN'T BE REPLACED. HOPE THIS HELPS
Usually to solve some pairing problems shut off bluetooth completely(no lights) Push and hold button until bluetooth comes on,flashes then steady light,you may have to hold button for ten seconds or more.Then put phone in pairing mode.
