In states that have made driving while talking on a hand-held cell phone illegal, the use of a BlueParrott headset makes it possible to use your phone while driving.

Step 1

Charge your headset.

Step 2

Set your phone’s Bluetooth mode to discoverable. Turn your headset off and hold down the "Multi Function Button" (MFB) until the blue and red lights flash. Release the button after you hear two rising tones and four normal tones.

Step 3

Wait for the devices to find each other and select “Pair.” Enter “0000” when the phone asks for a password. Select “Yes” when the phone prompts you to connect with the headset. The headset will flash a blue light indicating that the connection is active.

Step 4

Position the headset comfortably on your head with the microphone near your mouth’s corner. Make calls as usual and hang up the call by pressing the headset’s MFB.

Step 5

Answer incoming calls by pressing the headset’s MFB.

Step 6

Adjust the headset’s volume by quickly pressing the "Volume Up" or "Volume Down" buttons. Mute the microphone by holding down the "Volume Up" button for two seconds. You will hear a beep every 10 seconds when the microphone is muted.
