One of the most common questions I hear daily is: how do I pair my Bluetooth®-enabled wireless headset with my BlackBerry® smartphone? In response, I’d like to show you how easy it is to use the Bluetooth functionality on your BlackBerry smartphone to pair with a BlackBerry® Wireless Headset HS-500 (check out this Inside BlackBerry blog post for more about headsets!) in addition to any other Bluetooth-enabled device you might own.
Before we begin, you will want to have a copy of the product documentation that came with your Bluetooth-enabled device. This information is very important as it contains instructions on how to put your Bluetooth-enabled device into pairing mode. If you’re using a BlackBerry product such as the BlackBerry Wireless Headset HS-500, you can find the product documentation for it at the BlackBerry Documentation website or by visiting the BlackBerry Wireless Headset HS-500 User Guide.
So what is pairing mode and why is it important to me?
