Default Bluetooth messages - what do they mean?

Please Login to Remove!

I have been playing around with the BlueTooth part of my Blackberry and am wondering what these two messages mean and what the difference between them is.

I get these messages when I search for a device, find one, and then click on it.

"Enter numeric passkey for [name of phone]" or "Enter alphanumeric passkey for [name of phone]"

and:

"Pairing attempt from [name of phone]. Does this number match [e.g. 123 4567]?"

I am wondering why there are two types of message and what each of them refers to.

Thanks.

This is you trying to pair your phone with someone else's phone.

This is someone else's phone trying to pair with your phone.
