Connecting the Belkin Keyboard via Bluetooth®

Whenever you need to use a different tablet with your Belkin Keyboard, pairing must be performed to ensure that your keyboard is in control of the correct device. 

IMPORTANT:  Before using your Belkin QODE Keyboard, make sure to disconnect the Bluetooth® devices previously connected to it.  Also, if the keyboard layout of your device is different from that of your Hardware Keyboard, you must change the keyboard language to update the output.  Modifying only the iPad® or mobile phone language will not change the keyboard output.  For more information on how to change this on your Android™ device, click here.  For more information on how to change this on your iOS device, click here.

The steps below will guide you on how to properly pair your device with the keyboard via Bluetooth.

NOTE:  Make sure the keyboard and tablet are close to each other before pairing.
