    I got a samsung Genio Slide gt-b5310 from Xmas. It works fine except for one MAJOR problem. I cannot get it to pair with any in-car hands free kit.
    To pair should be easy.
    1. Let the phone find the device. (not a problem)
    2. Select the device (not a problem)
    3. Enter the device's code (PROBLEM)

    Instead of asking me for a code after step 2 the phone immediately starts trying to pair with the hands free kit then says "unable to pair" and offers to "try again" In short. Step 3 never happens.

    I will be so very grateful if someone can solve this for me.

    Re: Bluetooth problem - Genio Slide

    SOLVED !



    Problem: Phone will not pair with device. Possibly not asking for a Pin Code.

    Answer: Check device has not previously been paired with similar Phone. If so wipe the device's memory of earlier phone. Better yet, remove all previous pairings.

    Problem: After Pairing the phone 'bricks' and a page of technical data appears on the screen.

    Answer: do a factory reset. Please note that if your phone is an unlocked one this WILL NOT re-lock it. It remains unlocked.

    NOT SOLVED - The fault redevelops and once again freezes if you pair it with the hands free kit. This is definitely a middle-ware/software fault on the phone. Anyone got an answer? Pretty Please

    Final Answer.

    The Samsung Genio Slide B5310 is NOT compatible with the Parrot CK3100. This information is direct from the Tech Dudes at Parrot.
