    Thank you for your patience with this - I have been out of office due to the national easter holiday here in Norway, but now I am back.

    Could you confirm that you had the phone and PC configured as an advertising central while you were scanning for them?
    The default of PCs and smartphones is to be a central, and so when you select the native 'pair a new device' option it will begin to scan for advertising packets from the other device. Since a scanner only receives radio communication, and never transmitts any of its own, it will not be possible to find scanners that are active (it is not possible to 'scan for scanners'), and so you need to explicitly configure the smartphone or pc to be a peripheral / to be advertising. You can do this by using the nRF Connect application, for instance.

    Best regards,
