Are you trying to pair them using the Bluetooth settings or within the Voiceover settings?  

When I first tried pairing the iPhone and Focus 40 Blue, I was trying to do it within the Bluetooth settings and getting similar
problems.  Then I realised you ignore the Bluetooth settings and do the pairing within the Voiceover settings.

That said, I have heard others complain particularly about problems with the BN.

I hope this helps.

Why is pairing between an iPhone and an BN apex such a nightmare?  Both devices have bluetooth on and can find and identify each
other.  However, when I try to pair, first there's the obstacle of the incredibly short time limit for entering the PIN code which
means that pairing is denied because it took too long.  Then, once you've cracked that one, connection fails for no clear reason.
I'm told to make sure that Apex is turned on and in range.  The proximity of the phone to the BN is pretty much immediate.  It does
annoy me that things like this appear to be such a lottery.
