MicroBit Bluetooth pairing not working with code from online mbed compiler. Help needed.

I'm trying to connect my MicroBit to my phone via Bluetooth. All works smoothly and as expected on a brand new microbit (or one that has the original hex code re-installed), but any other hex I try to load from the mbed compiler (or other online tool) fails at the pairing stage. It won't do the passkey generation stage, so the phone won't pair. Any ideas? It seems like the standard microbit platform on the mbed compiler is missing something to allow pairing to work.

Question relating to:

The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized, codable computer that allows anyone to get creative with technology. Made possible through a major partnership with 31 organisations, a micro:bit has been given ...

I am having this problem also. I haven't got another MicroBit to test on, but have used code from one of the BBC provided compliers and can get pairing to work then.
