How to Connect a Bluetooth to TracFone
By Zach Dexter
Bluetooth technology enables cell phones, computers, headsets and other devices to communicate with each other without having to be physically wired together with cables. TracFone offers a number of phones that are compatible with this technology, and can be paired with any other Bluetooth device once that device is placed in "Discoverable" mode. You only have to do this once, and the paired Bluetooth devices will always remember each other.
Set the Bluetooth device to "Discoverable" mode. This will vary depending on the Bluetooth device, and must be done any time you wish to add a Bluetooth device to your personal area network (PAN).
Navigate to the phone's main menu and select "Tools," then "Bluetooth," then "Registered List," and you will see an "Add New Device" prompt. Select "OK."
Select "Yes" at the "Turn Bluetooth On" prompt. You are then prompted to place your Bluetooth device in "Discovery" mode. Since you have already done that, you may select "OK."
Select your Bluetooth device from the list, then select "OK." Enter the passkey for the Bluetooth device and select "OK." If no passkey is set on the Bluetooth device, enter "0000."
- The passkeys must be identical for all devices in your Bluetooth PAN.
