LG produces a line of cellular phones and smartphones as well as phone accessories such as Bluetooth headsets. Bluetooth headsets allow cell phone users to talk on their phones hands-free, making it much safer to drive or perform other tasks while talking. Before you can use your LG Bluetooth headset with your phone, you must pair up the two devices so that the phone recognizes and connects to the Bluetooth headset when you turn it on. This process is simple yet is slightly different for each type of phone.

1

Press the "Menu" button on your phone.

2

Select "Settings" then select "Connectivity." Note that you can select the Bluetooth option for some phones directly under menu. Skip to Step 4 if this applies to your phone.

3

Select "Bluetooth."

4

Select "On" for the Bluetooth option.

5

Press the "Power" button on the LG Bluetooth headset and hold it until a blue light appears on the headset. An option to select the Bluetooth device will appear on the screen once the phone picks up the signal.

6

Select the Bluetooth device on the screen. Note that some phones require you to select "Search new device" before the phone recognizes the Bluetooth headset.

7

Input "0000" (four zeros) using the number keys on the phone. This is the passcode for all LG Bluetooth headsets.

8

Press "OK."

9

Select the connected Bluetooth device and press the "Device Properties" or "Options" button on the phone.

10

Choose "Set as authorized" or "Allow without ask" (depending on your phone model) and press "OK."

11

Select "Yes" and press "OK." You can now use the Bluetooth device with the phone.
