Question newB confused with 8300

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

My first post and looks like a great site!

I just got the Blackberry 8300 Curve. I also have the Plantronics 510 bluetooth device. I cannot seem, or do not know how to "pair" the devices.

I have made the bluetooth connection active on desktop
I have tried to find the device via the bluetooth and via the headset but nothing is picking up.


Any suggestions would be great.

Thank you kindly,
SM

You have to put the headset in pairing mode. Not sure on the plantronics 510...does it have a multifunction button? Usually you hold it for 5-10 seconds and it will put it in pairing mode. The light will light up. Then do the search from the device.

I suggest going to the Plantronics website and find out how to put your headset in pairing mode.

Here is what I found, hope it helps.

"You put the unit in pairing mode by holding down the call control and power button at the same time until the indicator starts flashing alternate red and blue. You search for the device from your handset and then enter the pairing code 0000."
