    Default Palm Bluetooth Keyboard

    I have the old Palm-branded Bluetooth keyboard 3245WW. It looks exactly like the Freedom Bluetooth Folding Keyboard, but has the Palm branding.

    I would like to use it with my Galaxy SII. I've tried pairing them. The phone sees the keyboard. When I try to pair, it tells me to type in a 6-digit PIN. I type it in (using the Bluetooth keyboard) and nothing happens.

    Any ideas?

    Can you type it in on the phone?

    No--there's no way to make the soft keyboard come up that I can figure out.

    I had the same issue with my HP touchpad bluetooth keyboard, type in the 6-digits and hit enter.

    YES! Hitting Enter made all the difference. w00t!

    I notice I can't use shift for punctuation on the number keys, though...have to use Alt. No biggie.

    Thanks so much, Ogre840! You are one of those Shrek kind of ogres that are really not ogreful.

    I had a similar problem trying to connect the same keyboard to a Samsung Galaxy 3 when no number request appeared on the galaxy and the handshaking process just gave up without connection, even though the phone could see the keyboard. I took a chance and typed in 4 zeros (a common code) and then enter and presto it connected. Like you it was the ENTER that did it.

    I've been using a refurbished Apple wireless BT keyboard for a very long time and its amazing. Great battery life super portable and so easy to type on. Plus was only 32.00!
