    Okay I own a nokia bh-900 and when I try connecting it to the g1 it doesn't even pick it up I've never had a problem with my old SE k800I, I've also tried using my room mates plantronics headset and it didn't pick that up either. Can anyone help?

    Connected mine with a Nokia BH-803 and a SE HBH-PV712 without any issues.

    I know this is probably teaching you to suck eggs but normally it's the basics that people forget. you have switched the G1 to discoverable before you try to set up the headset connection haven't you?

    I had to tell my BT headset to initiate a new connection with a device before mine worked.

    Not that my BT headset understands voice commands, but you know what I mean

    how would i go about doing that? i usually just turn mine on and have the phone do the search and voila it pops up but with the g1 its a no go.

    Press and hold the power button of the headset, and adjust and hold the volume wheel up in about 10 seconds. The headset will beep twice and the indicator RED-BLUE-GREEN will flash for several seconds. Than your headset is clear of history of pairing.

    I found that on google, seems this issue has plagued a lot of people with different phones, that seems like the common solution. good luck
