Hi - Ive just bought a Motorola 801 headset to use with my Harrier. The headset is charged, the Harrier has been updated from the old ROM version to the version currently on the Telecom site, but I cant get the Harrier to detect the headset. Is there any particular settings I should have changed in the Harrier BT manager or settings? The headset was purchased at a Vodaphone shop (DSE had run out) but I was assured that the connectivity was not network specific (which wouldnt have made sense anyway). Frustrating as anything- help pleeease.

Have you put the headset in discoverable mode before doing the Search from the Harrier?

oh heck - do I do that on the headset or on the phone - I havent used anything like this before and the guy in the VF shop was soooo helpful - this device has two buttons on it, answer and volume, no install CD (that cant happen very often) - unless you mean a setting on the Harrier?

You do it on the headset. Check its manual, but... Most of the headsets work the same: turn it off. Then press the power button and hold it. It will turn the headset on, and keep holding it until you hear a beep. Then a LED will flash quickly (or change colours). Then on your Pocket PC do a search. When you find the headset tap its name and when asked for a code enter 0000 (this is four zeroes!).

As I said, most headsets follow this procedure, but check the manual. It's there...

thanks - its little steps Im afraid, I found on another site how to turn the damn thing on (4 sec combination of the two buttons - not metioned in the "manual") so now it appears powered and the blue light is flashing. Next is to get the Harrier to see it. Sometimes these things are really frustrating with the language used but Im sure I'll get through it. Cheers.

Is this the same as the HS 810? Expansys has a manual in pdf format. The instructions are on page 12:

Put the headset into pairing mode: (a) With the headset’s boom closed, press and hold the
Multifunction Button E until the headset indicator turns on (about 3 seconds). (b) Release the button, then open the headset boom."

Thanks for the help. Ive tried everything I can think off and read heaps on other forums. The manual you pointed me to is for an HS810 which a little different in that it has a folding boom (which seems to be part of operating it) which this one doesnt. I cant see a manual for the 801 anywhere on the net, not even on the Motorola site and all that came with the headset itself was a single piece of paper with english text on one side and chinese on the other. There wasnt a charger either so the sales guy had to put another in the blister pack. Im meeting someone tomorrow who might be able to help so we'll have a go. If the Harrier would at least show me that it can see the headset I'd be a little happier, the ways things are I feel like Ive paid $150 for a piece of cr*p. If we do figure it out and its anything startling I'll be sure to post a comment.

In the meantime if anyone has connected a BT headset to a Harrier even better this particular make and model, is there anything on the Harrier that I might be missing? Ive followed the manual - it all seems so intuitive yet I cant get it to work.

Return this Motorola, which seems to either be a second hand one, fake or illegal import. I'm not saying it is, but all signs tell me this is not an original piece anyway. Get your money back and buy a new one, sealed in the box.

I have three Bluetooth headsets here (a GN Netcom, a Sony Ericsson, and a Bluetake). All work well with the Harrier.

Hi - the happy end to my headset saga. I took the Motorola back to Vodafone and got a refund. Then I got my local Telecom agent to order a Nokia HS-4W which paired immediately and so far seems to work just fine. Thanks so much for all the advice

was interested to read this topic as I am just starting to look at BT headsets for my Harrier also. Magpiedog ... you mentioned a rom upgrade - I've looked on Telecom site and dont see anything - can you advise where to find please. Does the upgrade enable bt connections better?

There's a page on Telecom's website listing all updates, including the HTC Harrier update.

Thats the page. Dont be alarmed when your phone seems to not want to start up - it does take a while for it to restart itself - and make sure you do back up fully first, especially if you have ActiveSync backing up only your contacts and mail. Best thing is to always save files on the SD card just in case.
