* Preventing Passkey Prompt

1. When BlueTxT connects to your printer, the Blackberry™ Bluetooth® Manager checks security before making the connection. The Bluetooth® manager then prompts the user for the passkey to be entered. This can be an annoying event. To prevent this from occurring, setting your printer as a trusted device in most cases will prevent repetitive prompts for the passkey. Most cases because in some instances this procedure has no effect on this prompt.

2. Open the Bluetooth® manager and highlight your printer as shown in the image on the right.

3. Open the menu and select [Device Properties].

4. Change the [Trusted] option to [Yes] as shown in the image on the right. Save and exit.
