am having a dickens of a time trying to get a Verbatim folding bluetooth keyboard to pair with a Droid 2.
i do NOT understand how this pairing is supposed to go. I do the following:
power up the board. (get nice little blinking blue light that tells me bluetooth is ready to go.
power up the droid 2
go to wireless under settings.
tell the droid bluetooth enabled. (green check mark appears)
tell the droid I want it to be discoverable. (green check - 120 second count down starts)
go back to the keyboard, and with a pen, press the inset "connect" button for five (5) seconds.
tell the droid to scan for devices.
It comes back after a bit with Verbatim bluetooth keyboard.
tell the droid to pair with the keyboard.
everything seems hunky-dory until the damn droid comes back with a note telling me I need a passkey and to try "0000" or "1234".
the impression I have is that I'm supposed to type that in using the external keyboard. Nothing shows up when I do that. No sign that I've done anything. In point of fact, I'm locked there because my only option at that point is to either punt (cancel) or take a heavy shoe to the damn droid.
If I type the keycode in with the droid, ON the droid, I get 0000 or 1234 or whatever it is I type. The left had button (of 1; okay 2: cancel) becomes active and when I hit okay, the dialog goes away with a message saying that the droid is "pairing".
For thirty seconds or so and the I get told on the droid screen that the keyboard has told the droid to take a flying leap.
anybody got any ideas?
Preferably physically possible and not obscene?
[ particulars: note, I have installed on bluetooth keyboard v. 1.0 . it came with another keyboard "android 2.apk". maybe i should uninstall it, but when I DID uninstall it and tried, nothing seemed any different. same message, same result.]
