Hey all, questions, I did a search and couldn't find the specific answer, so I'm starting a new thread to see if anyone can help. I am having problems getting my BB Storm to connect to my HL. I have tried the basic connection setup from the phone where it discovers the car BT, but when I click on it through the phone and get the option to type the passcode in, it immediately disconnects from the HL, and I wind up with a lost connection. So I can never get the HL to accept a code from the phone b/c it disconnects. Anyone else seen this? I have tired Toyota's instructions for other BBs, but it gets the same problem. Anyone know what I am doing wrong? ugh.:headbang:

I am not an expert here but did you make your BB discoverable first??

Make your BlackBerry device discoverable
  1. In the device options, click Bluetooth.
  2. Press the Menu key.
  3. Click Options.
  4. Set the Discoverable field to Yes.
  5. Press the Menu key.
  6. Click Save
Also from the BB getting started (must have been written by Toyota:D)

Pair with a Bluetooth enabled device
Some Bluetooth® enabled devices have a passkey that you must type before you can pair
with them.


1. In the Bluetooth setup application, click
Search or Listen.

2. If necessary, click a Bluetooth enabled device.
3. If necessary, type the passkey for the Bluetooth enabled device on your
BlackBerry® device.
4. If necessary, type the passkey for the Bluetooth enabled device on the Bluetooth
enabled device.

Summerwind, thanks for the reply. I did not have my phone selected as "discoverable", so I changed that and still got the same disconnect problem.

I did find a solution, for those who may have had a similar problem. Before making any changes my HL would show up on the BB named "1", as its registered name on the phone. When I looked through the menu options on the nav menus for the BT, I noticed the HL's BT had no name registered, but it still showed up as "1" on my BB. For some reason this does not affect my wife's RAZR phone, but it does the BB. I decided to give it a shot and name the BT on the HL "Highlander". I ran through the set up connection process again, and "Highlander" showed up. I entered the passkey and away it went! I am all connected. Now I just need to make the changes to the gain and I will be all set! Thank you for jogging my thought process, your suggestions got me to the final solution. So for those who have this issue, name your BT on your car something, instead of leaving it blank by default. Thanks again!

This sounds like the start of a thread in Common Problems and Solutions or Maint and M.

could start with the How to adjust the volume link

http://mojavetrail.webng.com/Non_Nav_Bluetooth_Volume.pdf

and add your finding and those from others that have "survived" pairing their phone.

Sounds like a collective for the BT stuff is in need. I am glad it works, hopefully others won't be scratching their head so hard in the future.

Yup, got my ears on, son. :D Be glad to add it...PM me any necessary details as I'm clueless regading Bluetooth. BTW, the warranty info sticky is coming (perhaps included in Problems and Solutions?)...just been sidetracked and it fell by the wayside.

:thumbsup:
