Your phone can connect to other devices wirelessly, using Stereo Bluetooth® technology Class 2, v4.0 LE + EDR technology with several Bluetooth® Profiles.
Turn on and connect to a Bluetooth device
To turn on and connect a Bluetooth hands-free headset(s), car kit(s), or other Bluetooth devices:
1. Touch Apps
2. Touch Settings
3. Under Wireless & Networks; Turn Bluetooth on .

- If your device is not connecting to the Bluetooth accessory, it is recommended that you try to reset the Bluetooth device. Check your accessory user guide for reset details.
- During the Bluetooth pairing/connection process, some car kits will require you to accept the PBAP and MAP notifications to successfully establish a connection. Ignoring or rejecting the request may cause the car to disconnect and again try to establish a connection. This can result in you seeing a continuous sequence of connections and disconnections.
To avoid this situation, you should allow the PBAP and MAP requests and also click the "Always Allow" check box so you only need to accept these requests once. If you are already experiencing this situation, please disconnect (un-pair) the phone from the car and reconnect again. This time being sure to accept the PBAP and MAP requests and click the "Always Allow" checkbox.
To manually reconnect your phone with a paired device, touch the device name in the Bluetooth devices list.
