  1. I was so frustrated trying to get this to pair. Then I found you… Thank you. Took me literally milliseconds to pair and connect. With my Bluetooth working I am whole once again.

  2. Thanks so much Jay for your steps-by-steps instructions. This time I attempted 5′ to pair HS850 to I6 phone but did not pick up the signal at first till I googled & found Jay’s clear instructions. While struggling to get the light on steadily (not splashy) by holding the CALL button down for few seconds & open up the boom pointing the microphone of HS850 towards the I6 phone so that the pairing can come in contacts easily. No need to input the psswd for pairing with I6 phone since HS850 Motorola Bluetooth device automatically gets in the list, ready for me to tap on it & complete their pairing.
    For testing out its connection, it works like a charm with clear reception (sharp ringing tone.)
    I received HS850 Bluetooth as a gift many years ago using from Motorola phone to LG phone & now is connected to my 1st I-phone (I6) Still happy that the Motorola device is working perfectly fine. Please turn the Bluetooth signal off from the phone settings & close the boom from HS850 in maintaining their battery lives.
    Thanks so much again, Jay & have a terrific day. 😀

  3. Worked with my Sony Z1 Compact. It was a matter of turning off the Z1 and using your instructions and then turning on the Z1 in order for them to pair.
