Connecting to Bluetooth devices

Turn Bluetooth ON

The fastest way to turn Bluetooth ON and OFF on your phone is by using the Bluetooth shortcut from the Notifications panel (available in the Notifications panel as a default). You can also turn Bluetooth ON from the phone's settings.

To turn Bluetooth ON or OFF using the Bluetooth shortcut in the Notifications panel:

  1. Drag the Status bar down to open the Notifications panel.
  2. Touch the Bluetooth icon at the top of the Notifications panel to turn Bluetooth ON or OFF.

To turn Bluetooth ON and OFF from your phone's system settings:

  1. On a Home screen, touch the Menu key.
  2. Touch "System settings".
  3. Under "Wireless & networks", slide the Bluetooth switch to the ON position:

When Bluetooth is ON, a Bluetooth icon appears in the Status bar:

Pair your phone with a Bluetooth device

Before you can connect to a Bluetooth device, you need to pair your phone with it.

  1. On a Home screen, touch the Menu key.
  2. Touch "System settings".
  3. Under "Wireless & networks", touch "Bluetooth".
  4. Slide the Bluetooth switch to its ON position.

    The phone scans and displays the IDs of Bluetooth devices in range.

    If your phone stops scanning before your Bluetooth device is ready, touch "Search for devices" at the bottom of the screen.

    NB: Make sure the Bluetooth device is set to be visible (or discoverable). You may need to refer to the user guide for your Bluetooth device.

  5. Touch the ID of the Bluetooth device in the list to pair with it.
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete pairing.

If the pairing is successful, your phone will connect to the device and the device will be displayed as connected in the list.

NOTE: You may need to enter a passcode for the Bluetooth device - please see the product documentation that came with the Bluetooth device for details.

Connect to a previously paired Bluetooth device

Once your phone is paired with a device, the two will stay paired unless you unpair them. You can connect to a paired device manually - for example, to switch between Bluetooth devices or to reconnect to a device when it is back in range.

  1. On a Home screen, touch the Menu key.
  2. Touch "System settings".
  3. Under "Wireless & networks", touch "Bluetooth".
  4. Slide the Bluetooth switch to its ON position.
  5. In the list of paired devices, touch a paired but unconnected device that you want to connect to.

When your phone is connected to the Bluetooth device, the device is displayed as connected in the list.
