Undo "Forget This Device" Bluetooth

I was trying to pair my headset (Jabra BT2045 ) but accidentally pressed " Forget This Device. "
Now my iphone4 can't find the headset.
I had reset my network setting in reset option in iphone one time but it doesn't work.
How can I retrieve my device ?

I doubt this can be undone. Did you forget the password for pairing the headset?

Actually very easy. A little inconvenient, but easy.
Just go to settings>general>reset>reset all settings. This will undo the "forgotten" device and allow you to re-pair it. Be careful not to hit "erase all content and settings"..you just want to reset all settings. You will NOT lose any content or data, but u will lose all ur current settings. You will also lose ur icon layout. But that's about it. Much better then a full restored.

Thanks sulpfiction.
Can you tell me the exact items that will reset ??
I want to write it down before reset all settings and set them
after resetting.

You will lose all settings on the phone. Anything you left as default will remain unchanged, but anything you modified will have to be re-done. If you'd like to have a record of everything so you can go back and enter it, just take screen shots of all of your settings pages and you can go back and reference them if you need to once you reset it. It really shouldn't be that big of a deal.

There is no need to do a reset like sulpfiction suggests. Thats using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut, and I'm not sure it would even work for you.

Just put your headphones into pairing mode again and search for them again on the phone, as already suggested earlier in the thread.

If you know my headset (Jabra BT2045) it doesn't have any pairing mode
or password entrance. Only on/off switch.
Now what should I do?

Try reading your manual.

Put the headset in pairing mode manually
In case of unsuccessful pairing, put the Jabra BT2045 into pairing
mode manually . Make sure the headset is off . Press and hold the
answer/end button for approximately 5 seconds until the LED has
a constant light . The LED will flash before the light is constant
keep holding down the button until light is constant . Then follow
the steps 2 and 3 above

Took me 10 seconds to google this and find out. All bluetooth devices will have a pairing mode.

I very much doubt that. Hold the power button for 5 seconds. It's in the manual. Took me 3 seconds to Google it.

If you can't get the headset into pairing mode (as described in the manual I linked to earlier), then you have a faulty headset and there's nothing you can do with the phone to fix that.

Thanks everybody specially for helpful seconds
I changed my headset and put it into pairing mode and problem solved,
without resetting all settings.

All bluetooth devices have a pairing mode. A bluetooth device is useless if you can't pair it.

I'm amused lately that it's often faster to use Google to learn how to use a new gadget than it is to open the gadget's instruction manual from the box.

I myself am guilty of having done this a few times.

Smile Earbud re-pairing after pressing forget device on Iphone

I had the same problems with Plantronics ear buds. I tried everything above and finally downloaded the Plantronics user manuel and pressed the correct BUTTON ( one only, once only) not all buttons repeatedly, problem solved. By the way, i'm technically retarded so this is quite an achievement for me.

Reset

The only thing that restored my device was to reset all settings. Nothing else was successful. Just fyi.

None Work

None of these tips have worked for me. I have reset my Apple 5c, I have my Jabra in reset mode, still doesn't show up. Any more ideas?
