    BB Pearl and Jawbone

    Advertisement



    I've recently purchased a BB Pearl with a Jawbone bluetooth headset. While I can get the Jawbone configured on the Pearl, it will not automatically acquire when the Jawbone is turned on. I am able to manually by turning on the Jawbone and selecting Options, Bluetooth, Menu, Connect. Why will this device not automatically connect vs manual? The devices are paired and BT is enabled on the BB.

    I would first try deleting the pairing, a battery pull on my Pearl and then after the pearl reboots try to re-pair the Jawbone. Let me know how it does b/c that is the BT H/S I am looking @ buying for my pearl soon. I currently use a Plantonics 655 that works pretty good!

    Attempted your suggestion, but didn't work. I'm at a loss on this. Very frustrating.

    finally figured out my problem with the auto connect. there are 2 ways to turn the device on: 1) use the talk button and hold for 3 secs; 2) hold the noise shield button for 3 secs. both options will power on the jawbone. if the jawbone is turned on using option 1 the auto connect will be successful. do not use option 2 for power on - the auto connect will not work.
