    7130c/Plantronics Explorer 320 Issue

    Advertisement



    For two months I had a BB 7100g and I loved pairing it with my Plantronics Explorer 320. Now, I recently upgraded to the BB 7130c and I can't use my Plantronics with it. I should be able to but the BB returns the message every time that a device cannot be found. The Plantronics headset and phone's bluetooth work independently; meaning if they sync with other bluetooth items. Problem is, the 7130c won't find the Plantronics. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Just make sure the Plantronics Headset is in pairing mode, with a solid light, and then the BB needs to be put into search mode. You should be good to go.

    Are you able to pair your new BB with any other headsets, maybe it has faulty Bluetooth.

    Yes, I can pair the BB with other bluetooth devices such as my IBM T42. I can also still pair the headset with my old BB 7100g (which my gf has now stolen ).

    Hmmm, so you have made sure that the BT is on in the 7130, and then you put Plantronics in pair mode, go back into 7130 and find device, and that didnt work. Thats really all there is to it, somethings off huh.

    Got it...Apparently you can't just pair the two together by having the Plantronics powered on. You can only do it initially when it is in the off position. When it is off, I had to hold down the power button for a while until the light flashed an alternating blue-red. Then it was discoverable. I made the mistake of assuming it was discoverable while turned on. Thanks for your help and hope this thread helps someone else in the future.
