Can't pair with app?

Proper bollox this. I uninstalled app and then reinstalled. When it asks to enter the 5 digit code it fails to find the headset. Any pointers? Proper anti-climax I feel like throwing it out the window.

    Restart your phone and / or turn Wifi, Bluetooth off for a few seconds. Turn everything on again and try again to enter the 5 digit code from the Quests Display.

    Not working. Doesn't want to recognize the 5 digit number. All this phone crap has always been contentious for me and now this just reinforces that. I know many people hated this with the Oculus GO. A standalone headset which requires phone to work. It's just a dead weight right now until support can offer advice.

    Had the same issue with the Go and had to upgrade to a new phone(only had Windows Phones before....)
    If you have another phone, or a tablet with IOS/ Android - try that!

    May i ask which phone you are using and which Android version it runs?

    Galaxy S4 Android 5.0.1  - App works fine with the rift and GO connected.

    Can I use one of those desktop android emulator apps? I see that is just a pain in arse. Looks like I will have to use the missus phone then. Bummer!

    I tried almost all Emulators before buying a new phone - none worked. You can try Android x86 and VMWare, but you will have trouble getting the Oculus App installed and usable for your Headset.

    I just ended up with the cheapest android phone i could find, which was an Nokia 2(pretty bad to be honest for a "recent" phone). Cubot phones are cheap too, but .... the recent Huawei incident makes me not wanna buy those..who knows how long they are supported?

    Anyways..good luck!

    I just used the missus s6 Edge. I'm in. Still a royal pain though. After Oculus GO a shame Facebook doesn't offer a desktop method of updating the headset.

    Yeah it sucks :/ This isn't as standalone as advertised. And it also isn't a one time thing either. You have to use the app to pair a controller(also not one time...), to set it to developer mode and to update the Headset. 

    But still..when that is ou of the way you are in for a great time, so enjoy your Quest ^^

    I have a Samsung 8+ and had the issue where the Quest wasn't available as a headset to pair.  I logged out of the app and then logged back in.  This prompted an update and solved the issue for me.
