BLUETOOTH ON PB NOT WORKING ON OTHER BLUETOOTH DEVICES

I have a bluetooth headset motorola that works 100% on the curve 8530 and on my sony vaio. When i pair it to the tablet, it does not find it, as far as the sony vaio laptop, it does find it but does not interact on either end, its only engaged but not accesible.  Any idea what could it be, or how to fix this bug?

Hi playbook_fan

 

You can pair the BlackBerry Playbook with other Bluetooth devices however the supported Bluetooth services may not support the functionality.

Thanks

Re: BLUETOOTH ON PB NOT WORKING ON OTHER BLUETOOTH DEVICES

That is a shame on RIM, how in the world they release a product when still have so many issues?. It is frustrating when you buy something that can not be used in some applications. So it is not fuctional because the manufacturer of the other device does not support Playbook or both products not support each other, like the Motorola headset I have, it works on the curve 8530, but not on the PB. I know some products like Bluetooth keyboards or the BB phones work, when you think will be implemented and fully functional in more products? I thought they have a standard for Bluetooth?

I'm trying to pair the Playbook to a Motorola Bluetooth Keyboard. It finds, but errors out and does not connect.

Re: BLUETOOTH ON PB NOT WORKING ON OTHER BLUETOOTH DEVICES

After messing about for a bit, I was able to get the bluetooth keyboard to connect nicely. I had to use the Keyboard's ability to connec to a Computer by pressing the V,A, and R buttons simultaneously while powering on. Then enter the Code from the Playbook and it finally connected. A couple issues, 1. You can't see where the cursor is going when pressing Tab. 2. Ctrl-Enter does not add www. and .com to the address bar like IE.

Re: BLUETOOTH ON PB NOT WORKING ON OTHER BLUETOOTH DEVICES

My playbook finally found the motorola headset, but doesn't communicate each other, when i play a video or a song, the headset doesn't  play the audio from tablet, the device is in the list of bluetooth devices but when i open properties on the headset it says "not available services".

Re: BLUETOOTH ON PB NOT WORKING ON OTHER BLUETOOTH DEVICES

I have the same problem. Bluetooth on my PB can see and is paired with both, my PC and my Nokia E71, but I can't connect to either. While I can sync the PB with my PC using the USB cable, sync using bluetooth does not work.
