From the BlackBerry home screen, click on Options (wrench icon)> Networks and Connections > Bluetooth Connections. Turn the Bluetooth option to On.

Next, go to Paired Devices, click on Add a new device, and then click on Search.Your Android device should be detected.

Once detected, select your Android device and click on Submit to prompt your device.
