BlueTooth device doesn't require PIN# but Blackberry forces PIN# only?

Hi, I'm trying to connect my BlueTooth device to my Z10. The Z10 finds it fine but is asking me to enter a pin before connecting. The problem is my BlueTooth device doesn't require a pin.


It's odd Blackbbery is forcing to put a pin when there's many devices out there that don't need PIN #. It worked great on my Android phone since my Android did not force me to put in a pin to continue.


What should I do?




Android dev jumping ship to BB. Cascade newbie. Any help would be great. Miss the Visual Basic days.

Hello  New Developer


Thank you for your questions. 


Have you tried entering the PIN of 0000? This is usually a standard PIN when connecting a Bluetooth device unless that PIN has been changed. 


Let us know if this works.
