From the manual, page 58 in the troubleshooting section:
“iCom can be paired to a maximum of 8 different Bluetooth devices. If the internal memory is full, new pairings will overwrite previous pairings.”
Also from the manual :
The following summarizes the priority given to different audio sources:
1 Bluetooth phone call
2 Audio jack
3 FM receiver
4 Bluetooth stereo headset
The key thing to remember is that pairing means that the iCom and your other bluetooth devices have negotiated with each other provide permission to communicate with each other. It needs to be completed only once for each device you wish to use with your iCom.
Maintaining an active connection and connecting to each other is a different thing.
Just to be clear about this do you mean you are running your PC audio through the 3.5mm jack on the bottom of the iCom?? If not please explain step by step how you accomplish this. .
There are several ways I do this. I have several different bluetooth devices. Obviously a bluetooth ATT phone as described to JennyB, a Samsung MP3 player that has bluetooth built in, and a bluetooth adaptor (Jabra A120s). Each of these is paired with the iCom. But only one active connection is maintained at a time. The bluetooth adaptor I plug into my computer’s 3.5mm sound output port (I hate using a cord, too restrictive), and listen to music, video and whatever other sounds I have output from my compuer via bluetooth. Since I’ve paired the iCom with the phone, the priority settings mentioned above are still in place. The iCom will connect to whatever is active based on the priority setting.
As I explained to JennyB here’s a typical scenario:
I listen to music from my computer using bluetooth through the iCom, while the iCom is also paired with the ATT phone. When a call comes in, the iCom will trigger my hearing aids to chirp to notify me that there is a call. If I accept it by pressing the iCom button, it will switch to the phone call. When the call is done and I press the iCom button to end the call, it will switch back to the music from the computer automatically. The only bummer is that the music isn’t paused while your on the call. You won’t hear it on the call, but when you switch back, it will be still playing as if you had been listening to it all the time. If instead you use the audio cable, the same thing will happen, since the phone has the highest priority setting of all devices.
I do the same with my MP3 player using bluetooth. The key thing to remember, two devices of the same type can’t actively be working at the same time. So if I had my MP3 player and my bluetooth adaptor both on at the same time, the iCom will only stream from the first device it was active with. Same with phones, if you have a cell phone and a landline phone both using bluetooth, only one of them could be active at the same time. It a common complaint for the iCom, but not unusual for bluetooth devices.
Hope this gives you some clarity
