Bluetooth is a wireless networking technology that enables you to connect your phone to other wireless devices, such as headsets, speakers, headphones, fitness bands and even other phones.

To pair with a Bluetooth device:

  2. Make sure the other Bluetooth device is in Discover mode.
  3. Select the appropriate Bluetooth accessory from the list of available devices.
  4. Enter your PIN, if requested.

Note: Common manufacturer-set PINs are 0000 and 1234.

Typically, once a Bluetooth accessory has been paired with your phone, it can be used with the phone anytime without needing to pair them again.
