          Bluetooth Wireless Headsets

          Your phone supports the use of Bluetooth wireless headsets. Enable the Bluetooth setting on your phone before performing tasks such as scanning, pairing, and unpairing.


          Note


          Before pairing the Bluetooth headset with the phone, follow the instructions in the headset documentation to enable it for operation.


          Tips

          • Only one Bluetooth device can be connected to the phone at one time.
          • A Bluetooth device must remain within 10 m of the phone to keep the connection.
          • A Bluetooth device disconnects if the phone is turned off or if Bluetooth is disabled on the phone.
          • If a device that was previously paired with the phone is used to connect to another Bluetooth device, you must first unpair it, and then pair it again with the phone.
          • If a Bluetooth headset becomes disconnected (it goes out of range of the phone or the phone battery loses power), it should automatically reconnect when it is in range again or the battery is recharged. If it does not reconnect, you can tap the Bluetooth headset once to reestablish the connection.
          • If a Bluetooth headset is in power-save mode and becomes disconnected from the phone, you may need to tap the headset once to "wake" it to reestablish a connection.
