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.
- Tap Settings > Connected devices > Connection preferences > Bluetooth.
- Switch Bluetooth to On.
- Make sure the other device is switched on. You may need to start the pairing process from the other device. For details, see the user guide for the other device.
- Tap Pair new device and tap the device you want to pair with from the list of discovered Bluetooth devices.
- You may need to enter a passcode. For details, see the user guide for the other device.
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.
