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 meters (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 an unknown device. This helps to protect your phone from harmful content.
If you don't need to keep your phone connected to the other device anymore, you can disconnect them.
When you switch the other device on again, the connection reopens automatically.
If you no longer have the device with which you paired your phone, you can remove the pairing.
You can use Bluetooth to wirelessly connect to your friend's phone, to share photos, and much more.
The passcode is only used when you connect to something for the first time.
When you want to share your content or send photos you've taken to a friend, use Bluetooth to send them to compatible devices.
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 device.
The location of the received files depends on the other device. For details, see the user guide for the other device.
