Where do I find the blue tooth connection?

hello there!

Like most smartphones, the iPhone has the ability to connect via Bluetooth devices. Unlike features like Wi-fi, Apple did not make activating Bluetooth obvious or quick.

Here are the steps on how to turn on and off the Bluetooth on your iPhone:

1. Select the "Settings" application from the main menu.
2. Select the "General" option in the settings application. It is usually in the second group of items.
3. Select the "Bluetooth" option. The option is located in the second group of options.
4. Select the off switch to turn on the Bluetooth. Then, Congratulations, the iPhone has now turned on its Bluetooth, follow the same steps to toggle this switch to the off position.

Hope it helps.

Hello...i am using sony ericsson k550 i had a trouble in that i cant send any files through bluetooth my bluetooth is not working pls any one tell how to solve this prob

Make sure your phone and the other Bluetooth device are charged, switched on and within range of each other. Make sure Bluetooth wireless technology is turned on, and that the devices are set to be visible for other Bluetooth devices. Check that the two devices are paired, and have found each other. If there are still problems, you'll have to reset the connection and pair the two devices again.

In some Bluetooth installations, you must activate a COM port manually in your computer. This is done differently for different brands and models of Bluetooth devices. Please see the manufacturer's product documentation.

If a COM port is not activated

1. In many cases, you can right-click on your phone icon in the window where all found Bluetooth devices are shown, and select a 'COM port activation' item in the menu. Make a note of the COM port number of the activated port.
2. Open Sony Ericsson PC Suite and click Tools/Phone Monitor Options.../Com Ports. Enable the COM port you activated in step 1.
3. Keep the Bluetooth wireless technology turned on in your phone, restart the computer and try to connect again.

Bluetooth problem unable to find other bluetooth devices and will not switch on

Perhaps a question of interoperability. Just check if you have infrared that this one should not be activated. You can also retreive the battery of the phone during a minute and put it on again and activate the Bluetooth.

But no one know if your bluetooth is still working, but most of the kit into the activation, the blue light is shining.

Check also the set up of bluetooth application to the phone and change it if necessarly.

Need to know how to pair my phone with uconnect phone it is a LG385

You can pair your phone with another phone if your phone has either bluetooth or infrared. If the phone does have any of the tools, then go to settings on phone, then look for connectivity, then select bluetooth if it has and select ON to activate your bluetooth, then search for the phone you want to pair with...the same method applies to infrared but your phone must have an infrared port for connectivity reason. Thanks

Bluetooth fault

There are two places where can be the problem. 1. Bluetooth module is faulty 2. Infrared module is faulty. Mainly there is a problem with bluetooth module. This module needs to be replaced with hot air. It needs to see repair center. But think...Repair will cost you at least 40 pounds. Is it worthy?
