Question about Brookstone Big Blue Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Open Question

Samsung S4 can't locate Brookstone Big Blue Live even though speaker is findable

I previously had an iPhone 4 and had that paired with my Brookstone Big Blue Live speaker. Now I have a Samsung Galaxy S4. I turn on the Big Blue Live and the blue lights underneath are flashing. I assume meaning that it's connectable. But when I scan for devices on my S4, the speaker never comes up as a pairable device. Please help! I love these speakers.

    I figured it out. Needed to reset the speaker and didnt know how to do that. But it has finally connected. I'm so relieved!

    Before I saw your comment above, I was about to suggest resetting the speaker. That was the same problem I had.

It seems many people use only the term "paired" when talking about CONNECTING two Bluetooth devices. Connecting two Bluetooth devices means first "pairing" them and then "connecting" them. Pairing is a one time process done only the first time you try to connect the devices. It is like the two devices getting to know about each other. Next step is to actually connect the two and this process is done the first time after the pairing and then every time you want to use the speaker from your phone. When you open the Bluetooth tab on your phone's Settings menu you will see the names of all the Bluetooth devices it has been paired with previously and a "Paired" word next to it. If you want to use the device/speaker, tap on the name and it will CONNECT to it. You will see the word "Connected" instead of "Paired". Now you should have the music that you play on the phone coming out through the speaker. If you still can't hear the music over the speaker after a successful connection, turn up the volume on your phone (and on your speaker, if it has its own volume controls).

Big blue won't pair with iPad even though the iPad shows it's discoverable. Also, when I connect speaker it ipod using cable, it beeps but won't play.

That's because the speakers are broken. Look in the User guide for reset instructions. If that doesn't work buy new speakers.

Will not pair with my macbook, iphone or samsung s3 the device doesnt even show up in bluetooth to even connect to it. I follow all the steps. I am not pleased.

I was having the same problem until I read the instructions again. When you turn the speaker on press and hold the power button until the ring starts flashing. Once its flashing try pairing your S3 to it again. It came right up once I did this. Hope this helps. Good luck.
