    Tring to pair my Galaxy S Firmware Version 2.3.3 with Parrot Minikit Slim Bluetooth car kit. In Bluetooth settings device is visible under Bluetooth devices. When I select pair with this device I get an audio reply "Pairing Failed" and an onscreen error message. They are supposed to be compatible any ideas.

    Parrot support telling me that I need to wipe any recognition of Parrot Minifit Slim from phone. No option in Bluetooth settings for this. When you press and hold Parrot Minikit Slim in bluetooth device listing only option that comes up is Pair & Connect.
    Is there any app available that might allow more bluetooth options than Samsungs Settings option.
    Please help!!

    Just checked on my SGS and when I go to the bluetooth options and look at the devices my Minikit is shown (paired but not connected) and pressing and holding on this I get the option to 'unpair' the device.

    Ensure your Minikit is turned off before trying this.

    Unfortunately mine did not get as far as the initial pairing where you enter the password 1234.

    What version of Android is on you SGS.

    2.3.3 though I might add that I had no problems pairing when on 2.2 either.

    Don't know if you've tried power off and remove battery for 5 mins then insert and restart and see if pairing process works.

    seems like problems have arisen with bluetooth since 2.3 update, having niggles with my bury kit as well. either android or device manufacturers should sort it out.
    not sure if applicable but have you got the latest firmware for the minikit?

    Yes I powered of the phone and removed the battery that was one of the suggestions that Parrot Support made. I updated the kit to the most current version 1.31 I think.
    Parrot support have offered to check out the kit if I send it back to them. I tried it with my wifes Nokia phone (not sure of model) and it paired perfectly. Seems like it is a compatibility issue with the S.G.S. or its latest OS system so I am not sure if Parrot will be able to do anything with it.
    Thanks for the suggestions folks.

    Bluetooth pairing is has always been a problem though these days it seems less so.

    I've had problems with various handsets and bluetooth devices in the past.
