First thing you need to do is to go into your Bluetooth settings and make sure that your phone is set up to pair with a device. Next, make sure that the device your are pairing to your iPhone, is in pairing mode. After both of these steps are complete, the phone should recognize the device and you can complete the pairing process. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I recently bought the new iPhone 5 and it already has much more scratches than I had on my iPhone 4S. I'd like to return my phone. Is this possible?

It depends where you bought the iPhone from. If you purchased outright from your carrier or a reseller, then you would have to find out what their return policies are. If you purchased it from the Apple Online Store, then you would have to contact the Online Store Support Team to get it rectified as soon as possible.

Hi. I may be able to help you, but I will need more information. Specifically, which device are you trying to pair to your iPhone? I assume you're talking about Bluetooth, right? You can use Bluetooth devices with your iPhone, including headsets, car kits, stereo headphones, or an Apple Wireless Keyboard.

To specifically answer your question, I would need more information about what you are trying to pair with your phone. Note that the documentation that came with your device (headset, car kit, etc) should contain instructions. Is it a Plantronics that you're trying to pair by any chance?

Also, from the title of your post, it appears that you're trying find free manuals for your iPhone. You can access the iPhone Manual from this site: http://support.apple.com/manuals/
If that link doesn't work for you, just go to www.apple.com, click on the Support tab located in the bar at the top of the screen, then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and look for Manuals under the Resources column in the rectangular "Support" box at the bottom. From the new page that opens up, select "iPhone User Guide -- For iOS 7.1 software." You can download the manual or simply view it. It is very long! Bluetooth Devices are located in Chapter 3: Basics, page 35. BUT, the manual doesn't really tell you anymore than what I've listed below.

Here are some basics, if that is all you're needing:

Turn Bluetooth on. Go to Settings > Bluetooth.
Connect to a Bluetooth device. Tap the device in the Devices list, then follow the onscreen instructions to connect to it. See the documentation that came with the device for information about Bluetooth pairing. (For information about using an Apple Wireless Keyboard, there are different instructions.)

iPhone must be within about 30 feet (10 meters) of the Bluetooth device.

More basic instructions are here:
Return audio output to iPhone. Turn off or unpair the device, turn off Bluetooth in Settings > Bluetooth, or use AirPlay to switch audio output to iPhone. See AirPlay on page 34. Audio output returns to iPhone whenever the Bluetooth device is out of range.
Bypass your Bluetooth device. To use the iPhone receiver or speaker for phone calls:
Answer a call by tapping the iPhone screen.
During a call, tap Audio and choose iPhone or Speaker Phone.
Turn off the Bluetooth device, unpair it, or move out of range.
Turn off Bluetooth in Settings > Bluetooth.
Unpair a device. In Settings > Bluetooth, tap next to the device, then tap "Forget this Device." If you don't see the Devices list, make sure Bluetooth is on.

I believe the only way to make Bluetooth not discoverable is to turn Bluetooth off all together. It's designed to search for discoverable devices when turned on. I only turn on Bluetooth when using specific devices, else it's a battery hog. Google some sites for saving battery life on a 4S and you'll be surprised what is on that you may not need.

While using Bluetooth I hit forget this device. I need to use the device now but it won't recognize it. How do I reset the Bluetooth?


Easy; Go to settings and tell the device to scan for devices. Obviously make sure the device you want to use is turned on first and all going well, your phone will tell you your ready to use that pareticular bluetooth device. Good Luck. George

When I turn my iPhone Bluetooth on it won't find the Craig blue tooth speaker!


Any Bluetooth device MUST be discoverable for the phone to find it.
Does your Craig have any setup program / configuration where you can set it to be 'discoverable' ?

Hi I have an iPhone 4 and jabra bt3030 worked perfect on my iPhone but in my iPhone I tap forget this device and the device was gone! now I can't find it again! what should I do?


    • 1. Hold the "Answer/End" button on your Jabra Bluetooth headset down until the LED light on the headset turns solid blue. It is the button that has an image of a telephone on it.
    • 2. Click on the "Settings" icon from the main screen of your iPhone.
    • 3. Click on "General" in your iPhone's "Settings" menu.
    • 4. Click on "Bluetooth" to access your iPhone's Bluetooth menu and then click the option to turn on your iPhone's Bluetooth connection. Once your iPhone's Bluetooth is turned on, it will search for available Bluetooth devices.
    • 5. Select your Jabra headset by clicking on the icon that appears on your iPhone's screen.
    • 6. Enter the passkey for your Jabra Bluetooth headset. The default passkey on Jabra headsets is "0000."
    • 7. Click on OK on your iPhone

Need iphone 3g to recognize car stereo bluetooth, told phone to forget device, how can i get the phone to "remember" it again?


The bluetooth device in the car must be put into "search" mode. it is different with different devices but it needs to make itself discoverable. This keeps just anyone from picking up your bluetooth signal while you drive down the road.
