Question about Apple iPhone 5c

Open Question

How do i fix my iPhone 5c Bluetooth setting that is stuck on the spinning wheel instead of the On/Off slide button?

I purchased an iPhone 5c online that is is great condition but I am having trouble with the Bluetooth setting turning to "ON". When I go into settings for Bluetooth it shows "Off" and when I tap on the setting to turn it on it comes up with the Bluetooth page and shows the spinning gear (or wheel) instead of the On/Off button and stays that way forever so I can not connect any bluetooth device. I purchased the phone and gave it to my son before I completely checked everything out and came to find out later he reported that the Bluetooth setting never worked for him. So I set out on my mission to fix it, thinking it would be a "piece of cake"! I have searched far and wide on the internet and have tried everything so far pertaining to Hard Reset, Factory Restore, Restore to New Set Up, Reset Network Settings, Reset All Settings , Turning Airplane Mode/Do not Disturb on and off again, etc. etc. but to no avail. Can this be a hardware issue instead of software issue? I have opened the iPhone and inspected inside for any signs of water damage but it is "clean as a whistle" and all three moisture indicators are still good.

SOURCE: Apple - SORT THIS NOW!! iPhone 3G Bluetooth problem

It's very simple! The iPhone doesn't have normal bluetooth!

Unlike most devices, the iPhone can only see bluetooth hands-free headsets, and can't be found by other bluetooth devices either!

How bad is that?!?! Apple release what is basically a pocket computer, similar in some ways to the various pocket PCs (such as the O2 XDAs for example) which run Mobile Windows, but don't include normal bluetooth facilities, even though we are paying £400 for the hardware and we are now in the 21st century (and this is Apples 2nd attempt at getting it right)!

And don't get me started on the camera, or "cut and paste", or compatibility with accessories, or ......................

SOURCE: my new iphone 4 doesnt

According to the technicians of Apple, Bluetooth in iPhone does NOT recognize other iPhones/iPods/other brands of phones, because this facility in iPhone is not meant for transfer of data from one phone to the other. It is only for call-hearing and music-listening without keeping the phone attached to the ear.

How to fix sticky home button on iphone 5c? Fix to turn on again?


So to make sure I am correct, you shut your phone off and cant get it to turn back on because your home button is stuck?

Try holding on to the lock button for about 30 seconds. If that doesn't work, try plugging it into your computer / laptop.

I can't turn my Bluetooth on on my iPhone 5c? Can anybody help me!?


You can slide your fingers from the bottom of the screen upwards and the quick menu will come up. Just touch the BT icon and it will remain 'lit' when it is on. And vice versa for off. Or you can go to settings and Bluetooth is Abt the third option from the top. Go into it by touching it and slide the switch to on/off.

I dropped my phone now when people call they can't


  1. Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
  2. While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port: ts1630_01.jpg

    To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
  3. If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
  4. If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
