I wrote a couple articles about the Bluetooth Keyboard Setup with KeyPro Drivers. If you just jumping in see these previous articles listed from old to new.
We have had regular feedback from readers who have used the KeyPro drivers to setup Bluetooth portable keyboard on the Android and Blackberry platforms. The universal consensus seems to be that there are a couple of areas that catch people up. Reader Jeff Edwards points this out with his experience:
“After struggling to get a phone/keyboard pairing (I kept getting the message “Pairing refused by Freedom Pro”) I finally found some mention in the hardcopy instructions for OTHER phones that the “pairing button” should be pressed ” this button is not identified in the keyboard’s hardcopy instructions but it is a RECESSED button just above the SSP/HID switch; at first glance it LOOKS like a light (like the bluetooth and battery light below the switches) and I didn’t recognize it as a switch. Through some unrecorded/random pushings of this “Pairing” button during the pairing process my phone did eventually succeed in pairing I’m not totally clear what/when I did differently. In any case, I can attest that ONCE PAIRED and the other steps followed per the instructions, I was able to type on the keyboard and get the input to appear in a text field. Whew!”
I have taken the liberty to point out the specific areas that were problems in the diagram below:
The specific areas where these functions will be found will vary from keyboard to keyboard. However, all compatible keyboards will have them. Study your own keyboard until you know where they are, as you will need them for the setup process. Let us know if there are other areas where we can help.
