As we all know, the iPhone can TRANSMIT audio via bluetooth, but is it possible for the iPhone to also RECEIVE audio? Particularly from a TV or computer (assuming they also have BT)? Any know if this is possible, and if so, how to do that?
I'm having audio issues with my 3gs when bluetooth is turned on. I'm running 3.1.2 and jailbroken. My BT device is a Jabra Stone.
When in the car I connect my 3GS to the car and let my headunit control the audio. After about five minutes of playing music the music will stop playing from the car and start playing through the BT earpiece. I can still control the play functions through the car's headunit. If I turn off the headset the audio returns to the car speakers. I can't find a setting on the phone to NOT play music through BT.
On all my Windows Mobile phones in the past you could select which services to associate with BT. Seems with the Iphone it is all or none. Anyone know a workaround?
Since i updated my Iphone 4S to 5.1.1 my bluetooth audio does not work with my pioneer avic930bt head unit. Phone calls work fine over the bluetooth, but i cannot stream the audio to the pioneer. Yet if i take my iphone to my wifes Acura, it streams fine.
My iPhone 3GS used to work well with a Motorola H700 headset and the bluetooh in my Lexus. All of a sudden, I could connect with the H700 or the Lexus and place a call but there was no audio received or sent even though the screen in the Lexus said it was being sent/received. I have checked all settings; I have removed and re-setup the iPhone on both devices and to no avail. Is there something I am missing? I know the bluetooth system in the Lexus works because i can connect my Morotola SLVR to it and get audio both ways.
iPhone5 drops audio (music) playback to the handsfree built into my car.¬ This happens about 40% of the time and after a few seconds.¬ I have to disable bluetooth, wait and reenable.¬ I've seen it drop after longer, but typically it's seconds into connecting and starting playback.¬ Before upgrading to iOS 7.1.1 this never happened.¬ Phone is placed in cup holder in center console so signal strength should not be an issue.¬
Not sure if the phone's handfree part would still work.¬ I am suspecting that it does not.¬
I am unable to connect iPhone 3GS to car audio system via Bluetooth. When I turn in bluetooth in settings (in iphone) the icon appears on the top bar, but as soon I turn away from settings screen the bluetooth icon disappears. I have been trying to connect to my car audio system via Bluetooth which used to work properly a few weeks back.
After upgrading to 5.1.1 - my handsfree kit connects with iPhone still fine, but it has become impossible to hear any calls through it?! Whereas, I used to have an option to "choose audio output" (iPhone, speaker, or handsfree device), there is now only the standard built-in speaker option - as though no Bluetooth were connected. The handsfree device (Blueant S4) is connected and contacts synced, and still allows me to make calls - and yet, the audio of the phone calls can only be from the iPhone itself.
My iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1.1) no longer displays the audio source selections after successfully connecting via Bluetooth in my car. It appears that the Sources button has been replaced by a FaceTime button that I have not activated. Any suggestions for correcting this so I can talk hands free?
I have been unable to send or receive text messages and audio/mms. After some investigation, I believe the issue is a memory one. Once I change the "Memory in use" setting to phone memory rather than my 8GB microSD card I can send and receive messages.I tried to delete text messages from the memory card but nothing happened, they will not delete.
So ever since I updated to Lollipop in March (I'm with MTS) my Bluetooth audio with my pioneer double din stereo in my truck only works for about it a minute and a half then the signal seems to go weak and it gets really choppy and skips really bad. If I pause the song and wait 30 seconds itll sound fine again but only for about another minute and a half. Bluetooth audio works fine with my little Bluetooth speaker.
I have paired my HTC One "AT&T" with my 2012 Toyota Highlander. During the process I setup it up as a phone plus audio device. I can receive and make calls just fine without issue.
The problem is when I try to play pandora. No audio at all. Whats strange is thats its actually paired, i see the music symbol plus the connection strength bars on my console. It does not display any artist info or songs. When I play a song in pandora no audio on either my car or phone. Whats even stranger is I can use my car to skip songs in pandora but still no sound.
I have checked everything. Made sure bluetooth audio is setup in pandora. I have deleted my phone from toyota and the connection from my phone and repaired back up. Rebooted my phone.
I've seen hundreds of topics about this, but they're all very old and possibly irrelevent given the state of the android platform. My G1 is running Cyanogenmod 5.0.8 with firerat's AnySPL patch. I bought a bluetooth headset(Wireless Blue) hoping to listen to music and play videogames with it, but then I tried it and it wouldn't give the desired results. After a little research, I found out about A2DP. I'm aware that this mono bluetooth headset does not support A2DP. Is there any way to get audio output to my bluetooth headset without A2DP?
Is there any program that would allow the iPhone to connect to the internet over another phone's bluetooth connection? I know you can do the reverse - create a bluetooth for others to get the Internet.I would like to cancel my AT&T plan, but I want to access data on the iPhone when not around WiFi.
i bought my nokia c3-00 two weeks before, i have connected my phone via bluetooth to my car audio (ford figo), there is no problem in connecting the phone, i can make calls and receive and use all the features of the phone, but i coudnt play my music /mp3 files via blue tooth to the car audio. earlier i was using samsung star 3g, and there was no problem in it.
I can not get music to play via bluetooth in my cars. When I go to the bluetooth setting there is no option for media audio. I have a gs5 with lollipop. The cars I am trying are 2010 Chevy Traverse and a 2012 Chevy Cruze. Is it the car bluetooth? I found on my search where it looked like others have been able to do it on these vehicles.
I just bought my first smartphone , a Galaxy S5. While I new to smartphones, I am not new to tech. In my car ( a 2015 Subaru Forester) I was powering my S5 with the USB cable plugged into the car's USB port. I had the phone playing Pandora. I sort of assumed that I would get the music signal on the USB line but found that the enabled BT was overriding the USB so I was getting the music with my radio set to BT-A. The problem was that the every few seconds the volume would drop and the phone would make two beeps. If I disconnected the USB cable and ran off battery, this issue went away.
On further inspection, I noticed that on every volume drop with beeps, a USB connection notification was appearing in the notification lists. I just wanted the USB for power but it seemed to be trying to connect over and over and each time, the notification was interfering with the audio. I could not find a setting to stop the S5 from trying to connect to USB data.
I have 9 9550 and it will not Send audio over my Bluetooth connections. I have deleted and added Several times but No luck. It does Work when I Connect those devices to Other receivers. Must be a Settings in the Phone or something is Broken.
I'd like to use my E71 for streaming music via Spotify and I have been using a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter with various speakers and headphones, but the sound quality is always bad. The sound quality is equally as bad when playing high bitrate mp3s via real player, so I don't think it's just Spotify.
There is also some hiss produced, but this can be mitigated by having the E71 volume turned up to maximum and using an inline volume control on the headphones to turn the volume down. But the audio quality is still bad and seems to be missing a lot in the mid range.
If I were to get a Bluetooth headset or a Bluetooth to 3.5mm adapter so that I could use my own headphones, would this improve the audio quality as it bypasses the 2.5mm plug on the device completely, or is the audio still going to be bad due to some underlying problem in the way the E71 decodes MP3s?
My new Z2 D6503 is on .167 (4.4.4 KK) firmware, and when I connect it to my car's bluetooth audio system, sometimes it stutter really bad that I cannot enjoy the music. ¬†My car is 2014 and it also has the ability to read text messages.So after some investigation, I found a temporary solution to the dropouts:
1) If I just disable throw and reconnect, stuttering still exist. 2) If I just disable BT and re-enable, sometimes it fixes it but sometimes I lose AVRCP (control via car) 3) going into bluetooth setting, and disable MAP (text message), dropouts improved dramatically (from every 10 secs to every 1 mins or so) 4) disabling bluetooth Phone audio (so the only thing left is Bluetooth media audio) completely solves the dropout.
I'm trying to throw music audio to bluetooth speakers with¬†the Z2 and it doesn't work. The weird part is¬†phone calls work perfectly through the bluetooth speakers, but throw doesn't¬†work when playing music. The device also seems confused - the throw icon is highlighted in cyan, and the device under the menu is also highlighted, but the audio continues to play through the phone's speakers. ¬† It has the same behavior with my UE BOOM speaker and with my car's system (mObridge MOST). My phone's software build number is 17.1.1.A.0.402.
I have a Nokia. Lumia, blutooth on calls is ok, tho I do have to press blutooth again when making outgoing call wich I find odd as...... As soon as I pick my phone up and unlock it stops audio in car, so even if checking Mai l, mesage, wHatsapp etc the audio drops off in car, I have to keep pressing the fm button to get off bt audio,
I recently updated my Nokia 928 to a Nokia Icon. Ever since, I have had intermittent problems with my Bluetooth audio in my Acura TSX. The song will sometimes breakup or skip, almost like an old record with a scratch. Despite reminiscing about the good old days of record albums, this is a real nuisance.
if I turn Bluetooth on before I get in my Ford Mondeo it connects to ford audio and starts playing media via Walkman BUT if I exit car and go.back in, say 20 mins later the Z3 auto connects, and the media starts playing but I get no sound except the odd crackle, the currently selected track is visible on the car radio screen and tracks can be skipped etc, the phonebook also works and I can make receive calls with no audio problems.
Never had this issue with my iPhone, you could leave the car and get back in and it would automatically start playing from where it stopped when you got out.
A few days ago my pebble arrived. After pairing my pebble to my phone I noticed a noticeable drop in Bluetooth audio quality.
This has to be a problem that's addressed. I don't know if it's a android problem or just the device specific but what I found out is that this occurs on the LG G4 as well. Seems happen when your phone is paired with a Bluetooth LE device while also paired to a Bluetooth Audio device.
I switched from my s4 to the s6 and I am having bluetooth complications with my pioneer avh p4400 headunit. I did some google-ing around and found that a a few others are having the same problem but seeing as the phone came out a few days ago not everyone is inquiring about it. Bluetooth audio does not auto connect/play like it did on the s4 and there is no song info/description displayed which then renders the track skipping buttons useless on the headunit. I found an app to fix the auto connect issue at least.
I am using Google play music so this is kind of unusual. I am not sure if it is an s6 only issue having something to do with the new touchwiz or if android 5.0 is using different bluetooth protocols than prior. Everything is updated to the latest firmware. I was debating on upgrading to the 4100nex but if this issue is going to be present there also I would rather not have an extra expensive paperweight.
I was pulling my hair out trying to get media audio to stay connected on my S6 and Ford Sync audio system. I tried everything until I realized I had overlooked the obvious. Media audio would not stay connected, but call audio would. You have to select Bluetooth as the input on the Sync system. Only then will it say media audio connected on the phone and music will start playing assuming you have songs on the phone. So for those having trouble with media audio, make certain Bluetooth is selected on your car audio.
I've had my ATT S6 64GB since the release day, and my biggest peeve is that the bluetooth audio seems to incessantly stutter. I've narrowed the issue down: - Happened independently of proximity between phone and speaker - Not a streaming bandwidth issue, as it happened regardless of streaming a song or playing a song that was stored locally on the phone. Using (wired) headphones, this is never an issue. - An issue on several speaker models (Bluetooth speaker names are: Bose Mini SoundLink, DNX6190HD, SC-HTB580, Fugoo Speaker), and other phones had no issues streaming to these devices.
I've been using my Spotify app. I'm not sure if this is part of the issue. It may be some sort of lag in the app processing the sound in conjunction with the bluetooth module? Not sure...
