How To Pair Bluetooth Devices with Your Blackberry

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.

    Hi, Have a VE Holden and pairing with Blackberry Curve. Has worked for a week and now when cinnected have no radio. Always says (voice in) on Radio as if Blackberry is continually sending info. Only way to stop is to turnoff Blue Tooth.

    to get the passkey you need to go on your laptop and click “set up new blutooth device” once it finds your phone it will give you the passkey for it

    My 8703 seems only to accept numeric entries for passkey.
    How do I switch it to alpha for entering the passkey?

    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!

    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 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.

    Ive been unable to find my passkey in the manual.I use a blackberry 8100,could i plse have it sent to my inbox.Thank you

  22. 22 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.

    Hi, I am trying to pair my laptop with my 8800 - 0000 is not the passkey it is looking for… Can anyone help? Thx!

  28. 28 Kim

    try passkey 0000

  29. 29 Blayne

    So I figured it out! When pairing the devices the passkey should be the same for both…so if u put 2222 on the first device put 2222 on your Blackberry and they will be paired! Yay! Lol

    on most blackberry pearls or any phone for that matter,the passcode is 1234

    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
