Hello, i find this information very good but i want to know if this works too with the Nokia BH-503. If someone know
You can use Nokia BH-503 Bluetooth headset with Mac using same method.
you don’t have to make your computer discoverable unless you’re attempting to transfer files or something. you only have to make your headset discoverable. for the nokia headsets, you just hold the multi-function button for 2 seconds and it will rapidly blink blue — this means it’s discoverable.
having your computer in discoverable mode will just eat into the available bluetooth bandwidth. it’s actually a bad idea unless you’re using it, that’s why it’s off by default.
