Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a short-range communications technology that connects your device wirelessly to a number of Bluetooth devices, such as headsets and hands-free car Bluetooth systems, and Bluetooth-enabled computers, printers, and wireless devices.

Note: The Bluetooth communication range is approximately 30 feet.

Turn Bluetooth On or Off

Use the settings menu to turn your device's Bluetooth on or off.

  1. From a Home screen, tap Apps|Settings.
  2. Tap Bluetooth, and then tap On/Off to turn Bluetooth on or off.

Bluetooth Status Indicator

Status bar icons indicate your current Bluetooth connection status:

  • When Bluetooth is turned on, Bluetooth is displayed in the Status bar. 

Scan for Bluetooth Devices

When you want to pair with another Bluetooth device, you can scan for nearby devices that are visible. 

  1. From a Home screen, tap Apps|Settings
  2. Tap Bluetooth, and then tap On/Off to turn on Bluetooth.
  • When Bluetooth is first turned on, it scans for nearby Bluetooth devices and displays them.
  • To manually perform a new scan, tap Scan.

Pair Bluetooth Devices

The Bluetooth pairing process allows you to establish trusted connections between your device and another Bluetooth device.

Pairing between two Bluetooth devices is a one-time process. Once a pairing is created, the devices continue to recognize their partnership and exchange information without having to re-enter a passcode.

  1. From a Home screen, tap Apps|Settings.
  2. Tap Bluetooth, and then tap On/Off to turn on Bluetooth.
  • Make sure that the target device is discoverable so that your device can find it. Refer to the instructions that came with the device to find out how to set it to discoverable mode.
  1. Tap the name of the target device when you see it displayed in the Bluetooth devices section.
  • Your device automatically tries to pair with the target device. If automatic pairing fails, enter the passcode supplied with the target device.

Note: Due to different specifications and features of other Bluetooth-compatible devices, display and operations may be different, and functions such as transfer or exchange may not be possible with all Bluetooth-compatible devices.

Rename a Paired Device

Once you have paired your device to another device, you can rename the paired device to make it easier to recognize.

  1. From a Home screen, tap Apps|Settings.
  2. Tap Bluetooth, and then tap On/Off to turn on Bluetooth.
  3. Tap Settings next to the previously paired device.
  4. Tap Rename.

Delete a Paired Device (Unpair)

When you unpair from a Bluetooth device, the two devices no longer recognize each other. To connect again, you have to pair the devices.

  1. From a Home screen, tap Apps|Settings.
  2. Tap Bluetooth, and then tap On/Off to turn on Bluetooth.
  3. Tap Settings next to the paired device, and then tap Unpair to delete the paired device.
