    Just wondering why it asks "Enter numeric Passkey for ". When trying to pair up to another phone or some devices?
    Just curious.

    It's for security purposes

    Most I've dealt with are all zeros by default.

    I know that there is a way to change the code from all zeros, but I have not quite figured that out yet.

    I have never seen any Passkey that is not 0000. However you can change this if you wish to any other 4 digit number. Mostly your best defense is to not make your Blackberry discoverable.

    My advice for security purposes is keep your Blackberry's "Discoverable" setting set to No as mentioned above and keep your "Address Book Transfer" setting to No to ensure no one can see your Blackberry and even if they somehow find it, they can't steal your address book.

    The 0000 passkey is there so you can verify you want your device to pair with another device and your phone doesn't just go pairing itself with whatever device asks for a pair up.

    I was just curious because I've haven't seen this on my other non-BB phones. Just noticed it since I've had the Curve.
    Thanks all.

    I usually keep the bluetooth off untill I need it then turn it on. Trying to save on the battery life. Since I'm on it all day long.

    Everytime i have paired with another phone, both with my curve and the pearl i had, the last four digits of the phone number of the phone i was trying to connect to was the password i had to enter on both phones. I tried entering every common 4 digit number i could think of (0000 1111 1234 etc.) until i got it. Hope this helps.

    I currently have the Blackberry Curve 8330 and my hubby just got the Curve 8350. Our problem is when we try to connect them together so I can send him my contacts, it says connection failed over and over. It also asks for a passkey for each device and I've entered 0000 and 12345 but still get connection failed. Am I missing something? Please help, all of my hubby's business contacts are in my phone (we sent them to mine before we deactivated his old phone) and I really don't want to transfer them manually because there are over 300.

    I answered your question in your other thread. It can't be done.
