iPhone 6 | Won't Discover and Cannot Pair with My S4 - FIXED
Damian Turco — Oct 18, 2014 11:03AM AEDT
Updated to iPhone 6 and it wouldn't pair until i reset my S4 by holding the volume up and volume down buttons for 6 seconds. If anyone else has the same issue, do this and it will fix your issues.

Thanks for this info. Blue Ant closed and couldn't figure it out. Nothing on their "knowledge base". Sandi

I just did the reset by holding the volume up and down buttons together for 6 seconds and it worked with my Iphone 6.

If you can’t pair your iPhone to the BlueAnt S4, please close all the background application:
1. From the iPhone’s home screen, press the Home key twice . Recently active applications are displayed. Scroll right to view additional applications.
2. To close an application, swipe the application up. Once all the applications are closed, tap the home screen.
Note: Make sure there are no other bluetooth open when trying to pair the the phone to the BlueAnt S4.
Turn on the S4, press & hold the Vol + and the Vol – together at the same time and wait for the S4 to announce it has been reset.
Turn the S4 off and back on again.
Make sure the handsfree trigger is on (there is a green light beside the + symbol of the S4) then say, “BlueAnt Speak To Me”, wait for the S4 to ask you to Say A Command and then say “Pair Me”.
Follow the voice prompts to pair the S4 with your phone. The pairing code is 0000 (four zeros) if requested by the phone.

I tried everything to get my iPhone6 to discover BlueAnt - nothing seemed to work. You saved my day with the solution:
reset the BlueAnt headphones by pressing the + and - button. -
I LOOOOVE your headphones!!!
