        1. Touch Apps Image 
        2. Touch Settings
        3. Under Wireless & Networks; Turn Bluetooth on Image

        Tip: To extend battery life, turn Bluetooth off  Imagewhen not in use.

        8. Touch the device name again to connect to it. (If it doesn't automatically)


  • 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.
