Question about Motorola Mobility HS850 Consumer Headset
Just bought a Motorola Bluetooh HS850 headset and I'm following the pairing instructions to put the headset in pairing mode. Instructions say to hold down the multi-function button for 6 seconds till the light stays solid, then open the boom mic and the light should remain solid indicating the headset is in pairing mode. However, when I do this, the light will not stay solid and I can not pair my phone with the head set. Any ideas short of returning the product?
Was soooo helpful just make sure u do flip it open immediately after, thats were i messed up... Thk

You guys, come on. I just got this from my dad, tried to pair it after reading the first one had the same prob, but firgured out how to pair on the second shot. You hold the button until the light turns on, WHILE HOLDING IT you open the boom, then light light stays on. put your phone in blue tooth mode, search, and pair. Those of you with a pass key I can't help because mine does not ask for one, good luck tho!

Hold the button on the center with the engraved phone image for exactly 6 seconds and as soon as you see the light come on flip the boom open while still holding the button. as soon as it is solid blue you can let the button go and you are in pairing mode.

I have Samsung phone that also didn't want to pair with the HS850. However, I found a way to do it.
1. Activate the Bluetooth function on the phone.
2. Select "Search new device"
3. While the phone is searching, hold down the multi-funciton button until the light stay solid, then open the boom (the light will remain solid).
4. Once your phone found the headset, it will ask for code. Enter "0000".
5. It may not accept the code right away, just try again.
Enter the code (you phone may already found the phone, but you still need to enter the code to pair it).
Close the headset, hold down the button until blue solid light came on. Open the boom.
Keep in mind that once your phone found the headset ( HS8590 show up on the phone), you should be able to pair it. You may have to repeat step several times. Good Luck

The fact that once you get the light to stay solid and you have to flip it open to keep that open communication...That was such an important element that so many step by step instructions on the internet did not mention. Thanks a bunch... now I won't get pulled over for talking on the cell phone....

The passkey for this and most bluetooth headsets is 0000
Put that in there, and you should be good to go.

Make sure your phone is in pairing mode also. It'll be in the setup menu.

Thanks Guest! You are a lifesaver with the passcode!!!

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.

I think im just going to smash it, my product might be defected for something because when i try to put it in a solid mode, it would just keep flashing, even on a full charge, i cant even turn it off, the only way the blue led would stop flashing is if i drained the battery by leaving it on, i closed the boom, held the multi function key for 6 seconds and the light still flashes, so then i held it for 30 seconds, still flashing, now 1 minute, still flashing, i cant get it in pairing, cheap ****, if i cant get it to work within this week, its gettin a hammer.

I have a Motorola HS850 bluetooth headset and i couldn't get it to get into pairing mode. Then I read the instructions and i got it into pairing mode. What you have to do is hold on the the button in the center(bluetooth closed) and as soon as it lights up, open the "boom".(The Microphone) When the boom opens up at the same time the light in the middle it lit, the light will become solid and then it will be in pairing mode. When the phone finds the bluetooth connect it and enter the passcode "0000".

I kept typing in the 0000 pass code and it wouldn't pair until I turned on the ear piece again and getting the blue light to stay solid and then I plugged in the pass code and it paired. Thanks to everyone who posted and gave feedback as it helped me finally have a headset after 6 months without.

Got a motorola hs850 headset from my buddy but he forgot the passkey and he thinks he changed it form 0000 to something else..... how do i reset a passkey so i can pair it with my verizon LG ENVY 2?

It worked!!!! Best solution worked! Flip the boom as quickly as you can after the blue light turns on. Then, use your phone directions for pairing. Pass code is 0000. I found it also helps to touch the headpiece to the phone as well. Thanks!

Just put that in if it asks for it, and you are good to go.

Thank you so much for the connection tip. I knew I had to hold the button down and get the blue light to come on, but I didn't know had to open the mouth piece to get it to connect. It worked the first time I tried. THANK YOU

This worked great for me... I got the headset in "pairing" mode by following these instructions. Then set my BB Curve 8350i to "discover" bluetooth devices. It discovered the headset and asked for a PIN number... one of the other articles I read said the pin was "0000" so I put that in and - PRESTO - it works
