Bluetooth Pairing your BlackBerry to your computer and BlackBerry Desktop Manager

How-to

When I received my first BlackBerry® smartphone, I thought ‘wireless everything!’ – then I learned that there was a bit of configuring needed to get this all set up! However, it didn’t take a long time to get my device up and running without being tethered.

From the home screen on the BlackBerry smartphone, navigate to ‘Manage Connections’ and ensure there is a check beside ‘Bluetooth®’. The next step is making sure your device is ‘Discoverable’.

      Are you still not able to enable Bluetooth after reinserting your battery? If so, try clearing your Bluetooth database as shown here http://bbry.lv/buj0rQ then setting up your pairing again. http://bit.ly/aM7Cwv
