Ativa Bluetooth Instructions

by William Pullman

Bluetooth headsets provide cell phone users with wireless, hands-free operation of their phone. Ativa Bluetooth headsets can connect to Bluetooth-compatible cell phones and control most of the phone’s standard calling functions. The headsets are convenient and allow users to multitask while talking to someone. In order to use an Ativa headset with your phone, you need to understand how to charge the battery, how to pair the headset with your phone and the basic call control functions.

Charging Battery and Turning On Device

1

Plug the small end of the battery charger into the “DC In” port on the side of the headset and connect the opposite end of the charger to an electrical outlet. If you are charging the battery for the first time, keep the headset connected to the charger for at least 12 hours.

2

Turn on the Ativa Bluetooth headset by holding the “On/Off” button until the green indicator light turns on and you hear a low tone followed by a high tone. The “On/Off” button is the lone button on the face of the headset.

3

Power down the headset by pressing and holding the “On/Off” button until the indicator light turns red and you hear a high tone followed by a low tone.

Pairing

1

Turn off the headset by pressing and holding the “On/Off” button if your headset is turned on.

2

Press and hold the “On/Off” button until the indicator light alternately blinks red and green. Release the button when the indicator light is blinking as the headset is in pairing mode.

3

Search for available Bluetooth devices with your cell phone. The method for Bluetooth device searching is different for each phone, but is generally done by opening “Settings,” choosing “Bluetooth” and then “Search for Devices.” Check the instruction manual supplied with your phone for further information about searching for Bluetooth devices.

4

Select your Ativa Bluetooth headset from the list of options. The phone will prompt you for a passkey.

5

Enter “0000” using the phone’s number keypad and select “OK” or “Yes,” depending on your phone. If the pairing is successful, the headset’s indicator light will blink green. If unsuccessful, repeat Steps 1-5 to try again.

Call Functions

1

Change the speaker volume with the volume buttons located on both sides of the headset. The up volume button is located on the left of headset, under the “DC In” jack, and the down volume button is located on the right side of the headset.

2

Mute the headset microphone by pressing the up and down volume buttons simultaneously. You will hear a beep every few seconds to indicate the microphone is muted. Exit the muting function by pressing both buttons a second time.

3

Answer incoming calls by pressing and releasing the “On/Off” button when you hear ringing in the headset.

4

Reject incoming calls by pressing and holding the “On/Off” button until you hear two tones, indicating the call was rejected.

5

Redial numbers by pressing the volume down button until you hear four beeps.

6

Use the voice dial command function, if your phone supports voice commands, by pressing the “On/Off” button until you hear a beep. You can now use the voice commands supported by your cell phone.

7

Transfer calls from the cell phone handset to the Ativa Bluetooth headset by pressing the “On/Off” button when a call is already connected. You can transfer the call back to the cell phone handset by pressing the “On/Off” button a second time.
