Hi, I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California, and today I'm going to show you how Bluetooth works. Bluetooth is wireless technology which allows you to share files through different phones, through different computers, or, it allows you to have a wireless headset, paired with your phone or computer. So today I'm going to show you how to do that. So the first thing you're going to do is you're going to go on your phone. You're going to click on whatever is in the settings. It's usually something to the effect of 'Set Up Bluetooth'. So that's right here on my home screen on this particular device, and it gives me two options. It says 'Search for devices from here' or 'Allow another device to find me". I'm going to select the first one, which says 'Search for devices from here', which means the phone will look for other devices to pair with. Then I'm going to click 'Okay'. And it's turning on the Bluetooth. And it's searching for devices. So at this point, what I need to do is I need to put my Bluetooth device into pairing mode. So what I'm going to do right now is I'm going to put my Bluetooth device into pairing mode, and the way I'm going to do that is hold down the talk button. This is pretty much standard for all Bluetooth devices, but you can check in your instruction manual and make sure you're doing it the right way, and I'm going to hold it down until it starts flashing blue and red, on this particular headset. So my headset is in pairing mode, and my phone is looking for the headset. So I'm going to have it search for it, and right now it's searching for devices. And it found one. And it's an audio device, and it says 9xx Plantronics, which is this particular headset, so I'm going to click on, and it's waiting for the device, the headset. And it's asking for a numeric passkey. The numeric passkey for every single Bluetooth device, is four zeros. Which is zero, zero, zero, zero. And I'm going to click 'Okay'. And... pairing complete. Connect to the headset... yes. Okay, so my headset is paired, and I'm ready to use it. I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. You can log onto our webpage: myspace.com/cellphonebroker.
