    How do I set up blue tooth?

    Got the radio in the truck which is blue tooth enabled. Can't figure out how to get it set up though.
    My phone found the device but I still need to register it with the radio and the instructions say to enter the PIN code from the cell phone. Have no idea where the PIN code is. The phone also asks for a passcode which I also don't know what that is. I hate technology. Any help or at least a direction I can go to get it set up?

    phone is a samsung SGH-A877
    HU is a Kenwood 945U

    well i know when i did it it on mine i turned off the pin code option on my phone and their should be a code in the instruction manual under blue tooth set up like 0000 or 1111 something of that nature but if that doest work call the kenwood tech help line they should be able to help.

    Is that in your f-body? Have you tried playing with the mic gain at all? I figure it'll be a POS to use but the radio had it so I want to at least set it up and give it a try. I've already stuck it to my column so I'll just have to start it there for the time being because I don't want to have to tear the dash back apart right away. Hopefully since it's in my truck it'll work a little better. We'll see.

    watch for an alert on your phone when it says that, you may have to allow it by pressing 'OK' or something.

    thanks.....I'll look at it. I haven't messed with it since yesterday and it's not a huge deal. I can put in favorite numbers on the radio and just dial them from there if I need too.
