Default 8703e with IHF1000

Please Login to Remove!

I just had a Motorola IHF1000 car kit installed. I can pair my BB with it manually and everything works fine. I can send/recieve calls, etc. The car kit does not automatically pair with my BB, however. It does pair with my wife's Motorola cell phone every time she's in the car when I turn it on, so I don't think the problem's with the car kit. After I start the car, I have to go to the BB set up bluetooth icon, answer OK to the ensure bluetooth device is in paring mode question, stop the search, answer no to try again question in order to get to the paired devices list. I then select the IHF1000 device from the list and click on connect. After that, everything's fine. Point is, however, they're supposed to pair automatically every time I start the car and you can imagine this process is getting old.

I searched threads and found I should set device properties to Yes for discoverable, disabled for encryption and automatic for echo control. This didn't help. I keep my BB lock/PW protected. I've tried this with the BB both locked and unlocked, but it doesn't make a difference. I have OS v4.2.1.106(Platform 2.3.0.20)

One other thing; I noticed I seem to have to hold the BB close to the IHF1000 when manually connecting. My wife's cell phone, on the other hand, will automatically pair with her in the house and me in my car in the garage.

Any help/suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks, in advance.

One of my associates had this problem. He switched to the comparable Jabra handsfree setup and it syncs to both is BB and his wife's cell. It is an expensive solution, but it should work. Maybe you can return or exchange the Motorola kit. Tell the people you bought it from that it does not work. 73
