My lg incite bluetooth does not detect the motorola S9 bluetooth
this took me nearly an hour to figure out, but here goes:
go to "settings icon" - tap "bluetooth" - turn it on - go to "accessibility" tab - make sure your phone has a "name" - then make sure "allow other devices to connect", "all devices" and "other devices can discover me" are selected - then go back to the "general" tab - tap on the "bluetooth manager" link - go to "active connections tab" - click on "menu" at the bottom right corner - click on "paired devices" when the menu comes up - click on "add".
Now quickly put your bluetooth headset into pairing mode and as soon as the device and passkey asking screen comes up, tap on the little windows "find" (or "search") icon next to the "device" field. once your phone detects your headset, it will take you back the device and passkey screen, where the name of your headset will now appear in the device field. all you have to do is input your device passkey.
Now go back to "bluetooth manager" screen, where in your "my shortcuts" tab, your "hands-free connection" icon should be present. if it's not, then click on "new" in the bottom left corner and select the "hands-free/headset setup". On the screen that comes up, select "next" which will take you to the next screen. Here your headset device icon will be present with a small red checkmark beside it. Tap this and your phone will establish a connection with your headset. It will then take you back to "bluetooth manager" - "my shortcuts" screen where your "hands-free connection" icon will now be green with two small arrows beside it pointing towards each other. If you click on the active connections tab, you'll see your headset device icon there. Also, a pair of headphones will pop up on your windows toolbar at the very top.
After this setup, to ensure your phone's security, go back to the "settings" - "bluetooth" - "accessibility" tab. Select "paired devices only" under the Accessibility heading, and deselect "other devices can discover me".
Hope this helps everyone...so far this is the only non-user friendly feature of the phone that I've come across, rest is pretty good and highly customizable.
