Re: unable to pair nokia bluetooth bh 218 with blackberry bold

Does the BB see the bluetooth device at all? Are you sure you've put the bluetooth device in pairing mode?

yes the BB does not identify the device when you click "add device" button, secondly the blue tooth device is as well as the device was unpaired by using the multi functionkey of the blue tooth. still the device is not been recognised by the blackberry phone

My guess is you don't have the headset in pairing mode.  The instructions below are from the instructions for the BH-218"

 

 

Before using the headset, you must pair and connect it to a compatible phone.

 

1. Make sure your headset is switched off and your compatible phone is on.

 

2. If you've never paired the headset with a device, or you've cleared the pairings,
switch the headset on.

 

If you've previously paired your headset with another device, press and hold the multifunction button
for 5 seconds.

 

Pairing mode is switched on, and a blue indicator light starts to flash quickly.

3. Within 3 minutes, switch Bluetooth on in your phone, then set it to search for
Bluetooth devices. For details, see the user guide of the phone.

 

4. On your phone, select the headset from the list of found devices.

 

5. If asked, type in the passcode 0000.
When the headset is connected to a phone, the Bluetooth indicator light flashes
slowly.

 

You can pair your headset with 8 phones, but you can only connect it to 2 phones at
the same time.

 

With some phones, you may need to make the connection separately after pairing.

 

Tip: Can't connect the headset to a compatible phone? Make sure that the headset
is charged, switched on, and paired with the phone.

Re: unable to pair nokia bluetooth bh 218 with blackberry bold

Focus on step 2. Make sure you're getting it into pairing mode.

If that doesn't work then try clearing the pairings by doing the following:

1. To switch the headset off, press and hold button for 5 seconds.

2. Press and hold button for 8 seconds. The headset beeps twice, and the red and green
indicator lights alternate.

3. When the headset switches on, pairing mode is switched on automatically.

Re: unable to pair nokia bluetooth bh 218 with blackberry bold

thanks for the hint. I have a HM1300 Samsung headset, that works on iPhone. But I got a  a new BlackBerry Bold 9900 ( i switched back, I had 3 BB´s before, and came back now) and I was having a really hard time to sync the HM1300 with the 9900. Thanks again.
