    I just got my droid last night and am having a problem pairing it with my bluetooth headset. I turned on my bluetooth headset and then I turned on bluetooth on the droid and then hit scan for devices and nothing. It doesn't find it. Am I missing something?

    Thanks for your help!

    If your headset is like mine and most others, you will need to activate pairing mode. Normally, you will start with the earpiece powered off. Press and hold the power/sync button for about 3 1/2 to 4 seconds or until the status light (usually blue) stays on steady vs blinking. It should then be in pairing mode. Search with the Droid. When it finds the headset, tap the selection. You should be prompted for a passcode. Default is normally "0000".

    Is you blueant V1 working ok with the Moto Droid? I stopped using mine due to loud hissing. Blueant is working on firmware upgrade, but no solution as of yet?

    I am struggling trying to get my Verizon droid (without keyboard) pairing with the Z9i headset. I've followed the manual which are the steps described above. I've rebooted my droid and bluetooth and can't seem to get my phone to discover the headset although I have my phone in discoverable mode.

    Are there any other settings on my phone or on the bluetooth that need to be set? This seems like it should be straight forward but for some reason it's not working. Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated.

    I got a response to my email to Blueant customer service about a week ago. They have some software difficulties with the Motorola Droid, but are working to try to resolve them. I'm hoping for a firmware update for my V1 soon. They indicated that they have varing levels of difficulties with most of their product line and Droid, so I would imagine that would inclued your z9 also.

    I would suggest contacting Blueant customer support to let they know you are having a problem. They are really good at supporting their product.

    I found out that the blueant z9i has a limited number of pairings available (5 devices), you have to reset the blueant to overcome this. To reset, short press all 3 buttons, this clears all previous devices, then try to pair.

    Blueant Q1

    Got my droid 1 week ago went on ebay and got a BlueAnt Q1 For $34.00 Used I also had a small problem pairing it until i read the freakin instructions for the BlueAnt its voice activated so you have to tell it to go into pairing mode first then turn on the bluetooth for the phone i dont know if the Z9i is like that but try it it might just work.

    I have never heard of that brand but I know Verizon and Motorola will not help you. You should go to the vendors website, see if they have a FAQ, forum or way to contact.
