Support Bluetooth controller problems

view story

http://androidforums.com – Recently bought a Steelseries Free video game controller for my prevail and my phone can't find it when I scan for it. My phone picks up my roommate's macbook bluetooth signal as well as that of his android phone. His phone has no problem picking up the controller's signal. I can't find anywhere where it says these two devices can't be paired ... What am I missing? (General)
