You can connect wirelessly to other compatible devices, such as phones, computers, headsets, and car kits. You can also send your photos to compatible phones or to your computer.
You can connect your phone with many useful Bluetooth devices. For example, with a wireless headset (sold separately), you can speak on the phone hands-free – you can continue what you‘re doing, such as working at your computer, during a call. Connecting a phone to a Bluetooth device is called pairing.
Since devices with Bluetooth wireless technology communicate using radio waves, they do not need to be in direct line-of-sight. Bluetooth devices must, however, be within 10 metres (33 feet) of each other, although the connection may be subject to interference from obstructions such as walls or from other electronic devices.
Paired devices can connect to your phone when Bluetooth is switched on. Other devices can detect your phone only if the Bluetooth settings view is open.
Do not pair with or accept connection requests from unknown devices. This helps to protect your phone from harmful content.
If you want to share your photos or other content with a friend, send them to your friend's phone using Bluetooth.
You can use more than one Bluetooth connection at a time. For example, while using a Bluetooth headset, you can still send things to another phone.
The passcode is only used when you connect to something for the first time.
If you no longer have the device that you paired your phone with, you can remove the pairing.
