Okay, Yesterday i brought a Samsung Envy Black with a pair of Samsung Bluetooth stereo headsets (SBH500).

Now as it clearly states in the book i should just be able to turn them on and search via my phone and fine them, But my phone wont find them? Anyone know a reason for this?

if you read the handbook (page 8 i think) it says turn headset on and press & hold the play button AFTER lights flash blue red twice and then release after the lights start flashing blue red again then get the phone to search.

Book says to hold the center botton... this doesn't seem to effect the lights.. it does do that excatly light thing when it turns on but when i search nothing is found.

Question, did you fully charge your headset before trying to pair the devices? If not, some bluetooth products will not let you pair unless you have a good charge.

Yes, I have just finished charging it again to make sure that wasn't the problem. Did'nt seem to fix anything.

as for the holding of that botton.. it does'nt seem to do anything.. no matter how long its held for.

Ok then, take your phone back to the retailer and see if they can pair the device for you.
