Phone Pairing

Recommended Posts

I have just gone back to my trusty HTC phone after endless battery issues with my Samsung Galaxy. 

The sim card I have just transferred also but when i attempt to pair up to the car there is no response at all.

I own an XF 2010 model and it did pair up ok with the Samsung.

 

As 2 devices are trying to connect to each other I have no idea which way to go.... :( 

Has any other XF owner had experience of this annoying problem.?

 

Cheers Mickiep

Mick,

 

Been trawling through various forums and some peeps seem to have trouble with HTC and Vodophone software . I seems to take several attempts to pair up.

 

" It took several attempts to pair with the car. After 3
attempts (offering the same 4 digit key) a different key was displayed,
which enabled a successful pairing."

 

Or get a teenager to do it might be the best way. Personally I can't stand the things and don't have one.

Thank you Trevor & Peter for your responses.

I have made several unsuccessful attempts and as yet zilch...not even the appearance of a 4 digit number.

Trevors suggestion to find a tecky teenager might turn out to be the best possible solution.

 

Cheers

Hi Trevor - My guitar strutting 32 yr old nephew has sorted me out....Apparently under the settings of bluetooth on my HTC phone there is a 'discoverable' box

which should have been ticked which I wasn't aware of as I'm not much of a tecky guy so at least all is up and running now.

 

Thanks again..

 

Mickiep.

Mick,

 

Glad you got it sorted, don't get me started about music, I am obsessed according to the wife and daughters , I'm also a retired music researcher.

 

Took the XKR out for a spin over Exmoor yesterday, to a place called Withypool in Somerset . Got a lot of compliments and questions about the car, I don't think it was because it was a Jag, but more likely it is the first time they had seen a car !

 

Mind you the petrol was cheap, I got five gallons for a pound .

Although the bridge could do with updating, it was murder to cross !
