"Was able to fix this with my Plantronics Voyager Legend by simultaneously pusing the answer and on button on the headset and holding the answer button down until it turned red."
(Ugh, really?! I'll feel like an idiot if this works)
- "Go back and read the iPhone manual, Bluetooth section.
- Don't try to do this while driving.
- Take a deep breath and relax.
- Unpair/delete your old phone, although I don't think this is necessary.
- Make your iPhone 5 Bluetooth undiscoverable.
- IMPORTANT - Make sure you can see BOTH your car interface and your iPhone 5 display.
- From your car interface, tell your car to look for a new Bluetooth device.
- Now make your iPhone 5 discoverable.
- Look at your iPhone 5 display, NOT your car screen, your iPhone 5 will list your car and you must acknowledge by tapping the button.
- Once you acknowledge the link on your iPhone 5 first, THEN your car will pick it up.
- From here, everyone knows how to complete the pairing process."
It's normal to lose the BT profiles saved in the iPhone when switching to a new iPhone and restoring from a backup.
On the Voyager Pro HD you can force it to go into pairing mode by starting with it OFF. Then pesss and hold the power button for several seconds until the LED flashes red/blue alternately.
Then go to Bluetooth in settings on the iPhone make sure BT is ON, and look for "PLT_VoyagerPro" under devices and tap it to pair them up.
