Hello All,

Do you have the pairing agent turned on?

Hello, yes it is turned on and the phone can recognise the device. A Bluetooth dongle is attached to my Raspberry Pi. 3B+. Can this cause the problem?

Any technical support question should be accompanied with technical details. Otherwise we're just shooting in the dark.

What, for example, is the make/model of your phone? None of my recent Google-branded Android phones has this behavior, nor my iPad or my partner's iPhones. The patch referenced by Tim addresses an issue found by a user of a Xiaomi phone, so we know at least some devices still depend on a PIN in certain cases.

What is the purpose of the Bluetooth dongle on the RPi3B+, which has a perfectly good Bluetooth adapter built in? Which are you trying to connect to? If the external adapter, then is the integrated adapter disabled?

Since I don't have an affected device, I can't explore whether the proposed patch works. You could try it to see if it solves your problem. What I can do, I suppose, is explore whether the proposed patch interferes with the devices I do have which work without it.

Regards,
Kent

ETA: I posted this just as you posted your response. Glad you solved your problem.
