Lumia Icon :: Bluetooth Connection Fails - Phone Does Not Recognize Radio
Aug 12, 2014
Nokia Icon received last week from Verizon. I generally like the phone and am excited about using it since I am a Windows user and want to take advantage of using my phone with Windows PC. Heard great things about this phone and wanted to try it after years of Android use. I have heard complaints about lack of apps but I am not an apps user except for the most basic ones. My problem is more with connecting to other devices. After receiving phone, downloading updates to installed apps out of the box, I have had problems with connecting/staying connected to WiFi. Had to reboot phone to get any recognition of networks. Working better now. Bluetooth is the current problem.
Phone does not recognize radio. Just searches and searches. Talked to both Verizon and Alpine Stereo. Alpine says I need to update a file since the head unit is four years old. Took Icon to my wife's brand new Escalade and it will not recognize it either. Just searches away. So, four year old or brand new units don't seem to have been set up for Windows phones.
I switched to a new bluetooth headphones and the new headphones show connected to the Icon but I am not getting sound.. I am not able to test the old headphones to see if they still have sound as they will no longer hold a charge.
PC: HP Compaq 8510w running Win XP Professional, SP3 with PC Suite 188.8.131.52 Bluetooth: Broadcom 184.108.40.2067/HCI 2.0/LMP 2.0 (HP integrated) E52 software ver 052.003, custom 052.003.247.05 (updated a month earlier)
They pair, but the phone insists my PC is an Audio Device ("Connect to audio device" on the menu). The PC responds somewhat strange - "Bluetooth Hands-Free device E52 Establishing Connection"...which FAILS - "Unable to establish Bluetooth connection" on the E52. So my PC also believes the E52 is a hands-free device. Apparently.Discovery of services on the E52 yields Data Transfer, Dial-Up Networking, Headset Audio Gateway, OBEX File Transfer+Object Push I recently replaced my original E52 with a new one and the first phone paired well and I could at least be on-line with text messages, calendar and contacts, although sometimes they would not connect automatically or the connection would be broken.This one's a mess.
I have got my Dell Vostro 3700 with Win7 (Pro-32bit) recently, have been trying connect my E72 with OVI via bluetooth, it only work when the first pairing, and the connection cannot establish once i restarted the computer.
My boyfriend has been trying to send me pictures from his n900 to my 8900 curve ,connection fails automatically, when tries to send me a file it asks on my bb if this code matches, and it never does.i can send to him,but he can't send to me.
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.
There is an app for android phones that prevents the phone from locking when it is connected to "approved" wifi or bluetooth connections.
Is there something like this for my Lumia Icon?
This allows me to keep it from locking while in the car or at home and then when disconnected it goes into the lock mode based on time frame selected as in when leaving the car and no longer connected to the bluetooth.
Having to enter the PIN every time I want to access the phone at home ( after time out ) is a pain. I would assume the app would be able to "disable" the lock timeout function when connected to specified wifi or bluetooth connections.
Lumia 1520 used to be flawless connecting to the paired Bluetooth in my car. Nothing has changed in the car. No updates or upgrades.
After the Denim update the phone will sometimes connect, and then after 1 or 2 successful connections, it will fail to connect although it still shows as paired. A reboot or re-pairing usually solves the issue and the cycle repeats.
i'm totally happy with my lumia 920 black for about 3 weeks now.I did successfully paired with my Kenwood DDX4021 BT (as i did before with my Lumia 800 and HTC Mozart).The phonebook and call lists were successfully transfered to the radio.
Yesterday i went home and activated blutooth on the phone.It showed message of the features it found and seems to connect (radio showed the connect icon) but then just did a reset and reboot.I tried several times. Every time after/while pairing with the radio the lumia just reboots itself.
I have this great bluetooth headset I use to work out with and I would love to be able to listen to the radio using these instead of having to plug in a wired headset. I know it uses the wired headset as a antenna so maybe there is a plug in antenna that will still let the music flow to the bluetooth headset?
I purchased a used icon yesterday and downloaded Lumia camera. The app said I needed denim and maybe 20 min later I got a notification saying welcome to denim (no loading screen or spinning gears etc). I try Lumia camera again and it says I still need denim. Extras and info says I have denim and resets haven't solved the problem (simple power down and the volume power button combo).
I have an icon running the developers 8.1.... So I am trying to stream radio stations on tunein radio and it works terribly. When the stream doe actually play it will stutter and skip, it will do that for a few seconds and then just go into a buffering loop. I even tored different streams of the station and got pretty much the same results. My signal is fine, I have full LTE so speed isnt not the problem. Also its just tunein radio....youtube Pandora and mix radio work fine.
This is an app I used a lot on the android phone and Id really like to be able to use it on the widows phone too but right now its absolutely useless.
So, a month or so ago I updated my phone to L without a hitch. This morning, I tried to begin moving to M, but I can't get my computer to recognize that the phone is connected to a USB port.
I'm running the latest Win 7 Pro build (current patches), I've tried using every USB port on the box, and I've tried four different cables. The Nexus will charge off the USB, but the PC will not connect to it, so I can't perform any of the flashing commands. Dev options are set on the phone, ofc.
I should note that I can't get the Device Manager to see anything connected, either, so it's not trying to update drivers or anything. Besides, I believe those are current, since everything worked a month ago.
Sometimes when I unlock my phone I see a round status icon (like a checked radio button) at the top of the screen next to the power, it disappears quickly. Can't seem to find any information on the status icons. What it is?
Yesterday I received in exchange for the Omnia 7 a Lumia 800. The first thing i did was to test the BT Connection to the BT speakerphone in an Opel Astra.Worthwhile the functions are different between the Omnia and the Lumia. The connection works. But with the Lumia I had no network operator display, no signal strength and can not even call from the car. How can that be for the same operating system? Unfortunately, this point is a big reason for a return of the phone.
My Icon Bluetooth isn't working in my car (928 worked great). It works in my little SUV, but the Bluetooth in the car cuts in and out. I've tried soft reset 3 times. Just having to reinstall everything.
My equipment is lumia icon, after pairing the bluetooth keyboard(apple bluetooth keyboard and it works well with other equipments) with my icon, I noticed that the connecting light of keyboard was flashing and I can't type letter through the keyboard.
I've never really used the Bluetooth on the icon before and wanted to know what the power drain would be like. I have the Denim update. A little background is that I want to use Bluetooth to connect to my car while commuting for phone calls. Do people just leave the blue tooth on all the time even when walking around? Or do you just turn it on when you get into the car
