Step 5: Connect 700p and Laptop

On your MacBook, click the Apple icon in the upper left corner; then, select System Preferences (fourth row). When the System Preferences screen appears, look for the Bluetooth icon (the second row of icons on the left side), and left-click it one time. Then, choose the Set Up New Device option in the lower right corner.

If your Bluetooth hardware is turned off, you will be prompted to turn it on. If it is on already, the Bluetooth Setup Assistant Startup screen appears (shown in Figure 3), and you can click Continue to proceed.

Next, the Select Device Type screen prompts you to choose the species of Bluetooth device the Mac laptop should look for. Choose Mobile Phone, the third option (shown in Figure 4).

The Mac laptop will then search for the 700p. During the discovery and pairing process, you should consider moving to a quiet place that is away from heavy business traffic; though even in a quiet place, you'll still have to wait for the laptop to find the 700p. When I first tried to make the connection to pair the laptop with the 700p, I was at the Denver Airport, and there were so many Bluetooth devices in this environment that the laptop couldn't discover the 700p.

Click Continue after the 700p is discovered. Figure 5 below shows a Bluetooth Mobile Phone Set Up screen listing the name, wkm700p, I gave my 700p.

The Bluetooth Mobile Phone Set Up screen (shown in Figure 6) that appears next is purely informational, telling you that the laptop is gathering information about your 700p. Click Continue to dismiss the screen.

Next, an authentication screen (shown in Figure 7) appears with an authentication code for the Bluetooth connection between your 700p and your laptop and instructions on how to complete the pairing process.

After the authentication code (shown in Figure 7) appears on your laptop, an authentication dialog (shown in Figure 8) will automatically appear on your 700p. To connect the laptop to the 700p, read the code from the laptop's authentication screen (shown in Figure 7), and type it in the passkey field in the 700p dialog using the numeric keypad. Then, click OK. Your laptop and the 700p are now connected via Bluetooth.
