How To Pair Bluetooth Devices with Your Blackberry

View 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.

  • paula
    I am trying to pair a Blackberry 8900 to the HS830 Bluetooth device.
    I know the passcode is 0000. But the Blackberrry is not detecting the HS830 at all. It detects other Bluetooth items, but not this one. There is nothing wrong with the HS830 as the little blue light flashes and we can pair it to another phone.

    Please heeeeeelp.
  • Paul
    to get the passkey you need to go on your laptop or computer and click “set up new blutooth device” once it finds your phone it will give you the passkey for it.

    Question. If the computer does not find the phone does that mean the blue tooth device you are using is not the correct one? I set everything up and my phone is locating the computer but it is asking me for a passkey. I do not have this number. But I called HP and they said that the computer should find the phone and you enter the same pass key for both the computer and the phone and it will pair. The phone is finding the computer but I don't think the computer is finding the phone. I purchased a Rocketfish Bluetooth adapter from bestbuy.

  • jen
    How do you turn on the bluetooth so you can add it
  • Kelly H
    You guys are right about the passkey code. It IS indeed 0000. I have a new curve and could not get the bluetooth to sync so I came on here. It worked! Thank you so much.
  • GeekSquad1
    If you need your passkey go to the place you got your backberry---bestbuy is okay, too---and ask what you need to do, they will come up with something!
  • Jimmy
    how do you connect your blackberry curve to computer with bluetooth?
  • carly

    I was unable to pair my 220 Playtronics Bluetooth with my new BB Curve, It was previously paired with my old BB Curve; Solution: You need to turn on Bluetooth and hold button down until the light flashed Red & Blue, about 10 seconds, this releases previous pairing with previous phone, I then went to my new BB and added the Bluetooth.
    Code for Playtronic devices I believe is always 0000. Hopes this helps someone in BlackBerry Land
  • Bevstp
    Thanks Mark!!!!! I was stuck in the BlackBerry hole and now I can conduct business while operating a motor vehicle "legally"

  • Sam
    on most blackberry pearls or any phone for that matter,the passcode is 1234
  • Blayne
    So I figured it out! When pairing the devices the passkey should be the same for if u put 2222 on the first device put 2222 on your Blackberry and they will be paired! Yay! Lol

  • Derrell Victory
    The passcode can be whatever digits you want. I do believe you have to have at least 4 numbers, and just make sure that you input them the same for both devices. 0000 is always the easiest.

    I have a blackberry curve and cannot pair it to a nokia bh800. I entered passcode, enabled bluetooth and then I try to CONNECT says it a waiting for BH-800. And it stays that way. Bluetooth lights indicates it is paired.
  • Amanda
    I have the Blackberry Curve and I paired the HS830 Bluetooth using the passcode 0000. I believe this is the passcode to all bluetooth headsets.....don't hold me to it but try it.

    I got a refurb BB7290 and Plantronics Explorer 330 bluettoth headset. I charged the Plantronics for 2 hours. Turned both BB7290 and Plantronics on. The plantronics said to hold call button in 6 seconds until blue and red lights are on. I sat Plantronics next to BB. Scrolled to options bluetooth..selected enabled..and it recognized the Plantronics 330..and simply asked for the passkey. I keyed the passkey no problem. Usually passkey is four zeros. I did not have to use capitals etc to get to numbers. I did not have to log into internet. it was simple for me and I've never owned a cell phone. I was able to do this with no sim in phone. Thanks for posting the instructions. IT WORKED!
