How To Pair Bluetooth Devices with Your Blackberry

186 Comments

Add Bluetooth
In order to pair a BlackBerry device with a Bluetooth device, the Bluetooth device must be in pairing mode. Most Bluetooth devices are not set to pairing mode by default. Therefore, refer to your Bluetooth device manual for instructions on how to set the device to pairing mode.

1. On the BlackBerry device, in the device options, click Bluetooth.

2. Click the trackwheel and click Add Device. The Select Device list appears and lists devices that are in range and available to be paired.

Note: Only devices that are in range and are in pairing mode will appear in the available device list.

3. Click the device to which you are pairing. The Enter passkey dialog appears.

4. Enter the passkey to authenticate the device. Most Bluetooth devices contain a hardcoded passkey. See your Bluetooth device manual for the passkey.

    I am trying to sync my blackberry bold 9700 to my laptop.  I can see the laptop when my BB searches devices and when I click to set up the connection, it asks for a passkey.  I do not have a passkey, where do I look for this? It is not referenced on the manual for the BB Bold.  In addition, when I pull up on my laptop to find devices, it cannot find the BB phone.  Why is that?  The BB can see the laptop; why can’t the laptop see the BB?

    I have paired two Blackberry 8520 devices, but still receive a message that it ‘failed to find service’ when trying to do a file transfer.  When I paired the devices, I did not get an ‘enter passkey’ dialog box, it just paired them.  Any ideas why I cannot transfer files?

  • Nikki Ranson

    Further to my message just now, I now realise I have to put the device receiving the file into ‘receive’ mode!  Logical really.  Now able to transfer files………………!
