    • Answer
    • Connect a Bluetooth enabled device

      Watch the video

      You can use Bluetooth® technology to connect your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet to a wireless keyboard, mouse, mobile phone, headset or other device that uses a supported Bluetooth profile. The first time you connect to a device, you pair it with your tablet. Your tablet remembers paired devices and usually connects to them automatically whenever they're in range.

      For information about connecting your tablet to a BlackBerry smartphone, see the BlackBerry Bridge section of the Help.

      1.  On the status bar, tap Settings > Bluetooth.
      2. Set the Bluetooth switch to On.
      3. Tap Add New Device > Search.
      4. Tap a device.
      5. If necessary, do one of the following:
        • Type a pairing passkey of your choice on both the device you're pairing with and on your tablet.
        • On your tablet, type the pairing passkey that appears on the device you're pairing with or in the information that came with the device. If you don't know the passkey, try 0000.
      After you finish:

      Reconnect to a paired device

      In the list of paired devices, tap the device > Connect.

      Change options for a paired device

      In the list of paired devices, tap the device.

      Delete a paired device

      In the list of paired devices, tap the device > Delete.

      Make your tablet discoverable

      To allow other Bluetooth enabled devices to search for your tablet and attempt to connect to it, you can make it discoverable. Set the Discoverable switch to On.

      To help protect your tablet against unauthorised access, you can make it discoverable for 2 minutes only. Tap Add New Device > Listen.
