I may be stating the obvious here but have you tried the jabra website http://jabra.pairx.co.uk/
It gives advice on most Jabra B/T Headset pairings.

Re: How to connect blue tooth headset NOKIA e71

I had the same problem today trying to connect a headset. I found the answer on an American discussion forum - at least it solved my problem!

The answer is, once you reach the screen where you can switch bluetooth on/off (amongst other things) you use the Scroll Key to scroll right to find another set of options. One of these is the one I needed to start the pairing, I found.

Hope this helps.

PS: It's a pity the manual is so unhelpful in areas such as this. I have yet to find the place where it tells you that there are more menus available than the first one that appears. Just one of my many problems with the operation of what should be a very good phone.

Re: How to connect blue tooth headset NOKIA e71

Thanks oxleymike, for sending me off in the right direction, they did not have my phone listed on the site but they did respond to my email and gave the following:

Pairing Instructions:

1. Please ensure that the Headset is OFF, i.e the blue light is not flashing.

2. Press and hold the answer/end button until you see a solid blue light (approximately 8 seconds), then release.

3. Set your phone to “discover” the headset by following your phone's instruction guide. Typically, the steps involved going to a “setup”, “connect”, or “Bluetooth” menu on your phone and then selecting the option to “discover” a Bluetooth device.

4. When your phone finds the “Jabra BT125”, it asks if you want to pair with it. Confirm this by selecting “yes” or “ok”.

5. When your phone asks for a passkey, enter “0000” (4 zeros) from your keypad and then press “yes” or “ok”.


(Note: Pairing must be done every time the Headset establishes a link with a different mobile phone or other Bluetooth compatible device)

many thanks mobiledude

Re: How to connect blue tooth headset NOKIA e71

if i may add, just goto to the paired devices menu again and select your bluetooth headset (or any other bluetooth devices for that matter) and press option (left soft button) and select "set as authorized".

this will enable your BT headset device to connect automatically every time you turn it on, and will not require your authorization or simply another button press

blue tooth connection to Tom Tom

Can anyone help please?

I am trying to blue tooth connect my Nokia E71 to my TomTom Go 730.

It all worked quite smoothly for a while.

Now whether I use the phone to try and connect, or the TomTom - they just refuse to acknowledge each other.

Thanks ++

 

PS The tip about scrolling to the right was brilliant!

Re: blue tooth connection to Tom Tom

I have the same problem. It kept asking for confirming the connection. Then I used the tip from here re the extended menu and making Nokia authorized. Nothing worked. I deleted all entries on Nokia and tomtom and started again. It says "error in checking you phone features" . Very frustrating. Failed ot pair after many attempts. Any help?

Re: How to connect blue tooth headset NOKIA e71

From the main menu just go to "Connection" -> "Bluetooth"

Make sure Bluetooth is set to "ON"

Then move one to the right (with the cursor key). Here you see all paired devices. 

Now select "Options" and "new paired device". If device you want to pair is not in the list then select "more devices"

 

Now search should start.

 

Good luck .-)

Re: How to connect blue tooth headset NOKIA e71

I have an E73 which is similar to the E71.  Try this:  Menu>Ctrl. panel>Connectivity>Bluetooth   At the top you will see a Bluetooth icon and a wrench.  Slide to the right and it will show paired devices. Select the "Option" key at the lower left corner below the display.  That will open the menu for new paired device and other options.

 

I hope that helps.  (It was a pita for me. The Nokia site was not very intuitive.)
