Default Blueant Z9 Pairing w/ 8700G & Samsung A727

Please Login to Remove!

So I previously had a Jabra BT5010 that had no issues pairing with both my 8700G and the A727. It just wasn't loud enough when I was driving at high speed or next to a semi. So I purchased the Blueant Z9 due to the fact one of it's main features was that it could pair to three devices at once. Has anyone else had success with this? It seems I can only get it to pair to the BB if it's not paired to any other phone. I had both working last night but turned all devices off for the evening and in the morning it would only work with the Samsung. I wiped and reset the phone and still can only get the Z9 to activate on either the Blackberry or the Samsung. I'm using operating system 4.2.1.107 any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Ian

Ok so I got the Z9 to pair back up with the BB but it will only pair to the BB or the Samsung...not to both....has anyone out there had luck pairing any headset to both your BB and another phone? If so what headset...I just want one that works, I really do like the Z9 it fits perfect and the volume and noise canceling is awesome. Thanks in advance for the help.

yes I used Both, The Z9 feels better cause it's so light you don't even notice it's there. I tried to click the button and it's the BB not picking up the Z9. The noise cancelation is very good everyone could hear me fine at high speed and next to semi's. The Jawbone my have slightly better noise cancelation but that is only marginaly. The biggest issue I had with the Jawbone was that the ear piece is springloaded and would push it self out of my ear. The comfort of the z9 makes it better than the Jawbone.

I purchased the Jabra BT8040, it is pairing and working in unison with both my Samsung and Blackberry. I was skeptical at first about the fit in my ear but it fits great, doesn't fall out. I'm verry impressed with the Jabra BT8040, def recomend it to anyone looking to use with both their work phone and personal phone.
