I have an Emerson Wireless Headset EM229 that is supposed to pair with any phone with Bluetooth. It worked fine with my previous phone, a Pantech. I just bought a Fusion 2 and it will not find the headset when scanning at all. Has anyone else had Bluetooth issues with this phone? Can anyone provide some advice? I really don't want to have to buy a whole new headset, especially if it's the phone that is the problem.
Hopefully this works, here is a trouble shooting list try try.
