How to Set Up Bluetooth Hands-Free

By Andrew Smith

A Bluetooth hands-free unit is a device that fits in your ear much like an earphone. These devices allows a cell phone user to talk on his phone without having to hold onto the phone. A Bluetooth hands-free unit will not automatically work with your cell phone. Before you can start using the Bluetooth, you will have to pair the unit with your cell phone. Setting up your Bluetooth will only take a few minutes and will give you the option of using your cell phone “hands free.”

Step 1

Plug in your Bluetooth hands-free device in order to charge the device. Leave the unit plugged in for roughly an hour so that it fully charges.

Step 2

Unplug the Bluetooth hands-free device.

Step 3

Press and hold the button found in the middle of the Bluetooth hands-free device. Do this until the light found on the middle of the Bluetooth stays on.

Step 4

Turn on your cell phone. Navigate to the Main Menu screen.

Step 5

Scroll to either “Settings” or “Settings & Tools.” Whichever you choose will depend on your particular cell phone.

Step 6

Search for a “Connectivity” option. If you find this option, highlight it and then press “OK.” Otherwise, skip to the next step.

Step 7

Choose “Bluetooth” or “Bluetooth Menu.” Press “OK” to go to the next screen.

Step 8

Select “Add New Device” and press “OK.” As you do this, place the Bluetooth hands-free device next to your cell phone. The phone will then search for the Bluetooth. When the Bluetooth is found, the name of the device will appear on the cell phone screen.

Step 9

Scroll down to the listed Bluetooth device and press “OK.” You will be asked to type in a code. Enter “0000” (four consecutive zeros) and press “OK.” Your Bluetooth hands-free device will then be paired with the cell phone and you will be able to use the device.
