    Bluetooth not pairing

    Hey all,

    Hate for my first post here to be in the tech issues forum, but I'm having an issue pairing my Droid to my brand spankin new Sennheiser VMX-100 BT headset. I enable bluetooth on the Droid, turn on the headset which flashes blue and red, telling me it's in pairing mode, hit the scan for devices on my Droid and it shows up. However, when I hit the button to pair it, it just sits there saying "Pairing..." and doesn't actually pair or ask me for the keycode. After about 15 seconds, the button to pair it comes back.

    Any ideas?

    ^Make sure that the DROID is visible,
    and make sure you set BOTH devices into Pairing mode!

    I have not - From what I hear, it's supposed to be fixed with the 2.0.1 update. I just installed the update and will try pairing it when I go home for lunch. Will let you know if it works.

    Then did you return it to the Salesman and ask him about compatibility?

    Nope. The 'salesman' was woot.com and they didn't have anything about it being incompatible with the Droid. I may RMA it or I might just sell it on CL since it retails for $75+ and I bought it for $25.

    I tried pairing it a few minutes ago after the 2.0.1 update and still no luck.

    Question

    Did anyone ever have luck pairing with this headset? sellout.woot.com has these for $24.99 today.

    Nope - I opened up support tickets with both Sennheiser and Motorola and they both basically told me I'm screwed.

    You don't need to make the handset visible, that's only if your trying to pair something to it. Bluetooth is a two-way pair but only the side that you are trying to pair needs to be visible (In most cases). Since your trying to pair the headset, that's the only thing you need to make visible (This is how all headsets work). Have you tried only making the headset visible then trying to pair them?
    Resistance is futile.
