Simplest of endeavors can sometimes be the hardest, strangely enough. The procedure outlined here is the same for all other Bluetooth Keyboard pairing. In the case of Think Outside keyboard, steps are important to be followed their order for the pairing to work. Once a heralded keyboard manufacture for Palm devices now relegated to oblivion by iPhones and Android created one of the best bluetooth keyboard. However, works fantastic with any phones devices that adheres to BT standard including all of Apple products such as iPads, iPods and iPhones all generations.
Android being the most fickle of the bunch can be paired but you should probably have Android OS of 2. Follow the steps in their specific order is very important and expeditiously as well as you have only small window of opportunity to pair. Whenever the Bluetooth on the phone and the keyboard is turn on. They will find each other, can take few minutes. I have mine always in my car just incase I have that itch! Hi, I have followed your instructions to pair my smartphone.
Could you please help me out. Thank you. Once paired you should be good to go. Yes, that is correct. Thanks, Jen. How can I help you? Worked great on my Nook Color running CyanogenMod 7! Had tried Blueinput before with limited success. This is Great!!! However, there is a possibility from whomever carrier you got the phone from specifically denied BT keyboard support.
But because your phone does support it. You should be able to pair by getting the BT drivers either from your carrier or from 3rd party like the app I pointed to above. When pairing with the iGo keyboard, the procedure seems to work and make the Galaxy happy shows paired , but the keyboard seems to go back to pairing mode rapid flashing green light.
Apparently Android 2. No input from keyboard in a note taking app at that point. Any ideas why the Android device seems happily paired, but the keyboard will not complete the pairing? I found a keyboard in my desk … Leftover from my Palm days. I usually keep my keyboard in my car so at any point of the day I can always pull it out and pound out something.
Thanks 4 advice. I have previously successfully paired my galaxy V happy BUT now although galaxy settings page states they are still paired it will no longer connect Activating the connection seems to stop the flashing light. Galaxy message when I scan fo nearby bluetooth device is thate there are none nearby, whaen actually the keyboardbis therevand flashing light on , but then light goes off during scanning process.
Would value any advice please. Same issue on my iPhone 4. When you start to enter the unique code, the flashing light goes out, like the keyboard strokes turn off the connectivity. Future foward to I bought this keyboard years ago. I am not sure what device I bought it for, but I know I never used it, but instead of tossing like may things because of getting busy or moving I held onto it.
I was holding numlock and not holding numlock-I would have never thought to hold FN blue! Just to say thanks for such a clear and effective guide to getting my dear iGo keyboard to perform on the next generation of phones — in my case a Galaxy S2. I started using the keyboard with an Ipaq and then various Windows mobile phones and the keyboard has just kept going — even the batteries last for ever!
Regards Andy. It generally works well to input alpha-numeric text. However, it occasionally throws foreign vowel characters into the text. I then must backspace delete to enter the correct English vowel. Is the a driver for the s3 to fix this problem? I contacted Samsung support and they declined to offer any support assistance to solve the issue. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem? BIG time sorry for the long no reply.
But first find a specific case where you can easily replicate this random character injection and see if it happens on both keyboards. These instructions worked like a charm after I finally got them right. At least so far so good. Yes you must hold down the blue function key while entering the numbers and the final enter to get it to pair.
I have an LG Nexus 4 with the new jelly bean op sys so was worried about whether there would be a driver for it. Thank you so much.
I was really surprised that they stopped making the stowaway. I have several other so called portable keyboards and nothing compares to the igo stowaway keyboard. I have this keyboard, which I purchased around I put new batteries in it, opened it, light is flashing, followed the pairing mode. Nothing seems to work. Any suggestions? Thank you! Your iPhone will throw up a dialog that has some random 4 digit.
You must type that in AND then press return. So the sequences goes like this: 1. Yes, I thought it would be that easy. I have tried entering the 4 digit numbers that the iphone gives, a good 10 times or more. Multiple code tries, along with trying the None of them have worked.
All end up saying that it is unavailable. I even tried entering , because I saw on another site that code works the iPad, just to see if it would work. It was still new, only had opened it once when I first bought it long ago. It should do something unusual like blinking LED somewhere. On my version of the keyboard it blinks green.
Steps were just as I first posted above. When I select it from the list it gives me a pairing code, 4 digit. Connection fails every time. It says the keyboard is either out of range or not on. Thanks for all your help. Just type the numbers as is. I was so excited when I read your last post. Or could it still be a user error? So sorry. I thought when I read your last statement about pressing FN keys while typing in the numbers was the culprit but I was mistaken. Just so we can be clear… I want to try again to maybe clarify something I may have confused….
Here is where we may still be questioning… a Here you were right, my apologize: Please do: Blue Fn left of spacebar then the 4 digits all the while you keep the Blue Fn pressed.. Good day, Awesome submit. There is a dilemma together with your web page inside i. Firefox is still industry leader plus a beneficial component to other people is going to miss out on your great producing due to this trouble.
The keyboard works great with my Droid X. Wonderful to have a keyboard that works with my pocket computer telephone. Yea there maybe. Well I may be having that problem with my keyboard. So, what do you think? A compromise between quick pair when you open vs. Inquiring minds of the Midnight Star wanna know.
