This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What device are you using? Is it an 'official' gingerbread release or have you installed it yourself? – Adrian Mar 15 '11 at 11:56

Exact same issue here. With froyo on my device I could pair my BT hands free car kit just fine. Now with gingerbread 2.3.3 the pairing/PIN dialogue doesn't appear and I can't pair my device. The car kit is a Parrot built in device in a Peugeot 207cc. boba – user4045 Apr 2 '11 at 18:37
On Inspire 4G and LG P500 there aren't such problem. But they are also bases on 2.3 android. If PIN=0000, devices such as handset is connected automatically. You need only to select it in BT menu of Android phone. – George Gaál Aug 12 '11 at 10:06
