and all other nearby Bluetooth devices are powered off before beginning.
4. In the phone’s Bluetooth list, two devices will be found, “BTH-600” and “PTT-U.” Both of these Bluetooth
devices must be paired to the phone for the BTH-600-KU’s audio and push-to-talk features to work.

Reconnecting a Previously Paired Speaker Microphone and Radio Adapter/Cellular Phone
Once the PRYMEBLU BTH-600-KU speaker microphone and Bluetooth radio adapter and/or cellular phone
have been successfully paired together, both devices will remember that connection. The speaker
microphone and radio adapter/phone will attempt to reestablish their link whenever they are both
powered on and in within range of each other. Re-establishing this connection can take 10-60 seconds.
Once setup, you will be able to use the speaker microphone with the AT&T ePTT app, even if ePTT is
running the background.
• To activate ePTT's push-to-talk feature, press and hold the PTT button on the speaker microphone.
• When ePTT is transmitting a call, audio will be picked up by the BTH-600-KU’s built-in microphone
unless a wired accessory with a built-in microphone is plugged into the speaker microphone. In that
case, the accessory microphone will be used instead..
• Incoming calls received by ePTT will be heard over the earphone that is plugged into the
BTH-600-KU's accessory port.
Making and Receiving Phone Calls
You can also use the speaker microphone to make and receive phone calls.
• You can initiate a phone call by using the Phone Dialer app in the phone.
• Phone audio will be routed to the BTH-600-KU's accessory port and microphone.
• To answer an incoming call, press the phone button on the speaker microphone.
• While on a call, you can press the phone button on the speaker microphone to hang up
the phone and end the call.

SUPPORT AND WARRANTY
OPTIONAL EAPRHONES
Although the BTH-600-KU has a built-in speaker for listening to received calls, some users may prefer to use
a listen only earphone for enhanced privacy. The accessory jack on the speaker microphone will accept any
mono earphone with a 3.5 mm audio plug. When an earphone is used, the front-firing speaker is disabled.
