It should show on one of your devices, if this is not the case type in 0000 (4 zeros) see what happens...

Hi Mat have tried that and other numbers but still says on my phone unable to pair with pc enter passkey

  MAT ALAN 20:24 03 Jul 2010

other forum suggests 00000 or 1111

Have to say 0000 is usually a default paskey for items like this...

Still no luck, not sure if i have given a passkey previously for the PC to pair with something else but i cannot remember it is there a way round this to start afresh

I don't know of any method of reset there is one more number to try which is 1999.
If that does not work i am at a loss.
If you enter 10 wrong codes your BB is supposed to wipe all info on it, (you are prompted when this is going to happen)

might work...

Disable Bluetooth passkey
Open the bluetooth control panel applet.
Go to the "Options" tab

Check - Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer
Check - Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer
Un-Check - Alert me whenever a new Bluetooth device wants to connect
Check - Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area

On the occasions that I have paired a phone with a PC, I have had to enter a number (which I create) into the PC's Bluetooth application and then enter that same number into the phone. There has never been a pre-existing default passkey.
