Connecting a Bluetooth Device to Your Calisto P800 Series Speakerphone

Question: I like the Calisto P800 series speakerphones for my home office using a single line telephone system, but sometimes I need to keep my conversations private.  I read that you can pair Bluetooth devices, like headsets, to them without using any adapters.  That’s just what I’m looking for, but how is it done, and can you pair more than one device at a time?

Answer: While the Calisto P800 series speakerphones have excellent sound quality, we appreciate that at times conversations need to be private and confidential, so to answer your question, yes you can pair multiple Bluetooth devices to the speakerphones without external adapters.  We’ll discuss pairing a mobile phone in a minute, but for now here are the steps for pairing a Bluetooth headset to a Calisto P800 series speakerphone.

1)      Press Menu (right softkey under screen) > Bluetooth (OK) > Connect headset (OK), it will ask you if you want to pair a headset now. Answer YES. (optional: Press Menu (right softkey under screen) > Settings (OK) > Bluetooth Setup (OK) > Select Headset (OK) > Pair New Headset (OK))
