How to Use Your Bluetooth Headset

All Bluetooth headsets need to be "paired" with your mobile phone. The pairing process is simple and every Bluetooth headset comes with easy to follow instructions on how to pair with your phone. The basic method is as follows charge the headset fully before use and put the headset in pairing mode. Many headsets have a "pairing button," or pairing can be accomplished by holding the "Power" button. Most headsets have a light that will glow solid when the headset is in pairing mode. On your phone, go to the Bluetooth services area and select "Add New Device." The phone will then search for your headset, and it should be detected. Once the headset is detected, most phones will ask for a passcode, which typically is "0000" or "1234." Your code will be in your headset instructions. Input the code and your device will be paired with your phone.

Once your device is paired with the phone, you will be able to make and receive calls on the headset. Depending on the specific features of your headset, you may be able to activate voice dialling, use call waiting or even have Caller ID on your headset. Typically, there is an "answer" button on the headset that you will press when you have an incoming call. Also, it is beneficial that if your phone is clipped to your belt, that your headset is on the same side of your body. This provides better reception to the headset. You should be able to be about 30 feet from your headset and have clear signal, but sometimes objects, such as walls, can limit your wireless range. If you hear crackling while talking on the headset, move closer to your phone.
