Bluetooth

Learn how to connect wirelessly to other compatible phones or devices, to send and receive content, such as music or pictures.

About Bluetooth connectivity

Select Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Bluetooth.

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 metres (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, it is only possible to connect to a paired device that has been set to Auto-connect.

Tip: To quickly access the Bluetooth settings, on the home screen, press and hold the Bluetooth key .
