You can connect wirelessly to other compatible devices, such as phones, computers,
headsets, and car kits.
You can use the connection to send items from your phone, copy files from your
compatible PC, and print files with a compatible printer.
Since devices with Bluetooth wireless technology communicate using radio waves,
they do not need to be in direct line-of-sight. However, they must 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.
When your phone is locked, only connections to authorized devices are possible.
Tip: You can also manage your Bluetooth connections in the status menu. To open
the status menu, swipe down from the notification area, then select
Bluetooth is not displayed, select .
Tip: You can add a Bluetooth widget to the home screen. To quickly turn Bluetooth
on or off, select the widget.
Operating the device in hidden mode is a safer way to avoid malicious software. Do
not accept Bluetooth connection requests from sources you do not trust. You can
also turn the Bluetooth function off when you are not using it.
