    bluetooth password

    I have a bluetooth headset, but for the life of me I cant remember the password for it. As a result, the q will not allow me to pair with it. Is there a way to figure out or reset the password for the headset? Is there a default password for the motorola bluetooth headsets?

    I will try that.

    Since you know about most things Q, do you know how to get the audio for WM to go through a headset. Mine just goes through the speakerphone.

    are we talking about a Bluetooth headset ? if so; go to Bluetooth Manager > Settings > Menu > Advanced > Use Hands-free for standard audio.

    That setting appears to be clicked on, but I have not tried to get the audio through my bluetooth because of the password problem. So, I have been using a wired headset.

    I can try the bluetooth if I can get it working. But, is there a similar solution for a wired headset?

    i would assume (haven't used a wired headset w/ the Q) the sound goes to the headset once you plug it in..

    Another unfortunate possiblity....there may be a defect in the BT modem or there may be something missing in the profile setting in the registry of the device.

    Fairly easy way to test that...use Sprite Backup?

    Backup your device... now have someone backup theirs. Whipe your device with a hard reset...have them do the same....make ANOTHER backup of their device whiped....this will give you the registry settings for a device that is working properly. Then just reload your original backup.

    This is kind of a hypothetical idea I just had to do the 45min-1.5hr wait the techs do inside of 15 mins. This will also allow you to possibly save yourself some time and trouble to know if it is working right and just a setting or if it is a hardware malfunction.

    Hope this is at least an idea to help a bit....plus this way we can kind of troublshoot a little more indepth then the techs (no offense to any of mine).

    The default for most any BT headsets is "0000"

    Many BT devices will reset back to factory new settings if you hold down the Volume Up and Volume Down controls simultaneously until the LED begins to flash red and blue.
    You can then use the standard "0000" password.

    Don't forget to delete from your Q any BT pairing profile that may have been created for that headset when you were initially trying to get it working.
