Use a Bluetooth Headset with Your Droid Bionic

To make the Bluetooth connection between the Droid Bionic and a set of those earphones, you pair the devices. That way, the Droid Bionic picks up only your earphone and not anyone else’s.

To pair the phone with a headset, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that Bluetooth is on.

  2. Turn on the Bluetooth headset.

  3. At the Home screen, press the Menu soft button and choose Settings.

  4. Choose Wireless & Networks and then Bluetooth Settings.

    The Bluetooth Settings screen appears.

  5. Choose Scan for Devices.

  6. If necessary, press the main button on the Bluetooth gizmo.

    The main button is the one you use to answer the phone. You may have to press and hold the button.

    Eventually, the device should appear on the screen, or you see its code number.

    Bluetooth headsets that appear on the Droid Bionic’s Bluetooth Settings screen feature the Headset icon by their names, as shown here.


  7. Choose the device.

  8. If necessary, input the device’s passcode.

    It’s usually a four-digit number, and quite often it’s simply 1234.

When the device is connected, you can stick it in your ear and press its main Answer button when the phone rings.

After you’ve answered the call (by pressing the main Answer button on the earphone), you can chat away.

If you tire of using the Bluetooth headset, you can touch the Bluetooth button on the touchscreen to use the Droid Bionic speaker and microphone.

  • You can turn the Bluetooth earphone on or off after it’s been paired. As long as Bluetooth is on, the Droid Bionic instantly recognizes the earphone when you turn it on.

  • The Bluetooth status icon changes when a device is paired. The new icon is shown here.


  • You can unpair a device; locate it on the Bluetooth Settings screen. Long-press the device and choose either the Disconnect or Disconnect & Unpair command.

  • Don’t forget to turn off the earpiece when you’re done with it. The earpiece has a battery, and it continues to drain when you forget to turn it off.
