    Hi all,

    I have a Samsung WEP870 bluetooth stereo headset which works fine with my old android phone. But TP is unable to detect it. I have tried all types (Audio, phone, .. , Other). It just does not detect it.

    I had a live chat with HP cust. care rep and at first he said only webOS devices can be paired via bluetooth. He probably did not know anything about TP. And then when I told him you can connect a keyboard and other devices that are not webOS devices, he gave me few samsung model numbers that are compliant.

    It's a 2 year old model that supports bluetooth 2.0 and A2DP. TP is 3.0.2.

    P.S. I do not have any patches or any thing of that sort installed on my TP. No Preware. Nothing.

    Will appreciate if someone could help me.
    Thanks.

    Did you put your headphone into pairing mode first? Been there, done that.

    If you want a good pair of stereo headphones that also have a mic (awesome for phone calls skype on TP), check out the Sony DRBT50's. Paired right up with my G4 TP, Veer and Pre3.

    How do you do that? I thought bluetooth headphones are ready to be paired. I can connect it to other devices. Here is the link for that headset.

    Not really, I think everyone that has used Bluetooth has at one time or another forgotten how to do the initial pairing, I know I have.

    Not foolish at all - I spent 20 minutes trying unsuccessfully to get my Bluetooth headset to pair with my iPod Touch before I checked online and found that Apple had deliberately crippled the Bluetooth stack on the Touch so it couldn't compete with the iPhone by using VoIP services.
