I have recently purchased a GE Bluetooth Telephone Adaptor Model 21518. I have recently given up my ATT Landline phone service and they gave me a new number for ATT DSL ONLINE ONLY Service. I purchased a Verizon Bluetooth Accolade Cell Phone and am using my old home phone number on it. I was hoping to pair my Verizon cell phone with my now unused landline phones in order to use the old phones at home. I followed the instructions but the Verizon Accolade phone never asked me to enter the default PIN 0000, but the adaptor blue light came on and the Verizon phone both indicated the two systems were paired. However,I am unable to call out or receive calls on my landline phones although I get a dial tone.
Do you have any suggestions or thoughts? I have to use phone jack filters at each phone jack in order to get on line using my ATT DSL; could this blocking the pairing?
Hi, well it simply MUST, exchange passcodes, for it to work, this is indeed the "Reason" you cannot, make or receive any calls, the land Line Phones MUST be connected directly to the Line, the "Filter" allows the DSL to work, it doesn't Stop, nor Allow, the phone to work.
When you connect up to the Version phone, first you must pair the Phone with the Headset, then pair with the Phone, with the Bluetooth on the 21518. It is the Phone you need to pair NOT the actual headset?
I couldn't find in the documentation, any mention of a BT headset and BT phone, that would also mean the there has to be two BT transceivers IN the Version phone too. While this is usual, I guess you had better check?
As I say, see if you can use the BT'ed Version with OUT the BT headset first, then, after you establish a good connection, that way, then try to "Add" the BT headset to the phone, again you will need a passcode.
However if you phone ONLY has ONE BT transceiver, then maybe you can only do ONE BT connection, either BT headset, OR BT connect to the device?
The 21518 should "Ask" the Version, for a passcode, & vice versa... once that is done, enter in the passcode from the Phone then connect the BT headset and then Pair them... then, see if that works.
You may have a manual but the below link is for your convenience.
