How to set up and use Bluetooth on the Motorola Milestone

Setting up and using Bluetooth on the Motorola Milestone Android-powered smartphone

With Bluetooth onboard, the Motorola Milestone can hook up wirelessly and communicate with other Bluetooth-enabled devices over short distances. It can link up over a range of around 10 metres to a range of Bluetooth devices, including mobile phones, handsfree headsets, PCs, in-car hi-fi systems, printers, wirefree speakers and headphones.

The Milestone's Bluetooth capability enables users to send and receive files, such as music, images, video, contacts, documents and so on, transferring data wirelessly to other Bluetooth capable devices that are within range of the smartphone. You don't have to line up the devices - if they're within approximately 10 metres of each, they can communicate, and files can be transferred or audio streamed at high speed.

Here's how to turn on and operate Bluetooth on the Motorola Milestone.

Setting up Bluetooth

  1. From the home screen, press the App Tray panel on the bottom of the display.
  2. The Applications menu appears. Press the Settings icon.
  3. Alternatively, from the home screen, press the Menu key under the display (second from left, marked with four horizontal lines). A menu appears. Press Settings.
  4. In the Settings menu, press Wireless & Networks.
  5. In the Wireless & Network Settings menu, press Bluetooth to turn Bluetooth on.
  6. A green tick appears in the box in the panel to indicate that Bluetooth has been turned on.


Settings and pairing with other Bluetooth devices

You can pair your Milestone with another Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a headset, PC, mobile phone and so on, so you can automatically connect when you are within range. You only have to pair once, and the process is straightforward.

  1. To change Bluetooth settings and pair with other Bluetooth devices, in the Wireless & Network Settings menu (Step 5), press Bluetooth Settings. A list of options appears. You can make your Motorola Milestone appear to other Bluetooth devices searching within range by pressing Discoverable.
  2. When you press Discoverable, a green tick appears in the box, and the Milestone will be discoverable to other devices for two minutes.
  3. Other Bluetooth devices will see the default name of your device - Milestone - unless you want to change this so that it's more personal. To do this, press the Device Name option. Type in the name you want using the slide-out Qwerty keyboard (or, if you prefer, press the panel to use the soft keyboard).
  4. Once completed, press OK. Your new name changes in the Settings panel, and this name will be visible to other Bluetooth devices within range when your Milestone is in Discoverable mode.
  5. The Milestone will automatically scan for other Bluetooth devices within range, and their names will appear onscreen. You can refresh this list by pressing the Menu key under the display and pressing the Scan For Devices button that appears onscreen.
  6. To pair with another Bluetooth-enabled device, press the name of the device with which you wish to pair. On some devices with more recent versions of Bluetooth, you will get a message asking you to confirm that the other device is displaying a particular passkey code number. Press Pair on the Milestone to confirm. On the other device, you may get a similar procedure onscreen to confirm the passkey code.
  7. Alternatively, for some Bluetooth-enabled devices, when you press the name on the Milestone's screen you will be presented with a panel prompting you for a PIN code.
  8. For a device such as a headset, the PIN code required should be in the set-up instructions (something default like '0000' or '1234'). For a PC or phone, you can type in anything you like (you don't have to remember it). Type in your chosen code using the slide out keyboard or press the panel and type in the code using the onscreen soft numberpad. Press OK.
  9. You will be prompted by the paired device to type in the same code to accept the pairing. Type it in and press OK. The device will be displayed on your Bluetooth Settings menu with its Paired status indicated.
