How to turn Bluetooth on and off on a Samsung Intensity
Like many other cell phones, the Samsung Intensity (SCH U450) is Bluetooth-capable. Turning Bluetooth on and off on the Intensity is easy to do, as is configuring the phone's various Bluetooth options and setting up new connections.
To turn Bluetooth on, press the Menu button (the round button in the upper center of the numeric keypad). On the main menu screen, select the Settings & Tools submenu in the lower right hand corner. Then scroll down to item #3 (Bluetooth Menu) and select it.
If Bluetooth is currently disabled, the option in the lower left corner of the screen will say "Turn On." Press the left option button to turn Bluetooth on; you'll see a box pop up that says "Bluetooth power on." Now you can pair your phone with other Bluetooth devices, either by initiating a connection (choose Add New Device from the Bluetooth menu, or if you've paired with the device before, select it from the list of devices) or by making your phone discoverable (click the right option button, select Discovery Mode, and turn it on).
To disable Bluetooth, go back into the Bluetooth menu and just hit the left option button ("Turn Off"). A box will appear that says "Bluetooth power off."
If you're not sure if Bluetooth is on or off at any given time, just look at the status bar at the top of your Intensity's main screen. If you see the Bluetooth icon -- a sharply-angled white "B" on the blue background -- then Bluetooth is currently enabled.
