    Bluetooth® wireless technology

    Bluetooth® wireless technology

    Use the Bluetooth® function to send files to other Bluetooth® compatible devices, or to connect to handsfree accessories. Turn on the Bluetooth® function in your device and create wireless connections to other Bluetooth® compatible devices such as computers, handsfree accessories, and phones. Bluetooth® connections work better within 10 metres (33 feet), with no solid objects in between. In some cases you have to manually pair your device with other Bluetooth® devices.

    Pairing with another Bluetooth® device

    When you pair your device with another device, you can, for example, connect your device to a Bluetooth® headset or a Bluetooth® car kit and use these other devices to share music.

    Once you pair your device with another Bluetooth® device, your device remembers this pairing. When pairing your device with a Bluetooth® device, you may need to enter a passcode. Your device will automatically try the generic passcode 0000. If this does not work, refer to the user guide for your Bluetooth® device to get the device passcode. You do not need to re-enter the passcode the next time you connect to a previously paired Bluetooth® device.

    Note

    Some Bluetooth® devices, for example, most Bluetooth® headsets, require you to both pair and connect with the other device.

    Note

    You can pair your device with several Bluetooth® devices, but you can only connect to one Bluetooth® profile at the same time.
