How to connect Nokia BH-503 to Ubuntu 10.10


Hi guys,

I'm having troubles pairing Nokia headset BH-503 to my linux box. Here is what I tried:
1) Installed Blueman
2) searched new devices and found my Nokia BH-503
3) Set PIN code to custom and entered PIN 0000
4) Of course the headset is on pairing mode

However the pairing is always failing. In Blueman I get "Page Timeout", I also tried it with the other Bluetooth application which gives me the message "Setting up Nokia BH-503 failed"

Any idea what am I doing wrong?
Thank you for the help

Try pairing it without using a custom pincode. Since it is a bluetooth headset, most headsets you can pair without setting a specific pin.

Are you able to pair anything else to your computer without any problem?
