My iPhone 4 will not discover anything via Bluetooth. There's an iPhone 4s in the room, iPod with Bluetooth, an ipad 3rd generation, and two Kodak printers with Bluetooth capability that it will not discover. The Bluetooth is on and searching for device but fails to find anything.
I have purchased an I Phone 4S 32 GB, however, it seems not to discover other gadgets via bluetooth....as i need this connectivity for me to transfer all contacts from my other phone to my newly purhcased I phone 4S
I've just recently switched iPhones from 3 to 5s and I can't seem to locate ANY available Bluetooth devices on it.
My iPhone Bluetooth is switched ON and is constantly searching for devices but nothing shows up.and the device is right next to the phone in pairing mode (Sony wireless Bluetooth speaker).I assure there is nothing wrong with the speaker as it still recognizes my old iPhone (3).Â
The only other way I can connect is with an app called NFC Easy Connect, which iTunes store doesnt have. What can I do to solve this problem?
I have an iPhone 4s on iOS 5.1. Its bluetooth seems to be working 'coz it is able to pair with my Mac, AND nothing else. It is unable to discover nor pair with my iPad or any other gadgets in the house.
BTW, my hubby has exact iPhone model and OS, but its bluetooth is working fine and uses it regularly with car's FM transmitter. He can't see my phone either, and I cant detect his.

I just bought the Bose Bluetooth Series 2 headset and connected it to my Tour 9630. But there is one BIG issue: when I get a call and turn my bluetooth on, the phone shuts off and reboots.I use Sprint PCS as my carrier and my OS is version 5.My phone is sitting on my desk so a static electric charge is not causing this. On screen, I see the incoming call noticification (the usual with caller ID) and when I turn on my Bose Bluetooth, I see the popup window that tells me my Bluetooth is connected, then the screen goes blank because the phone shuts down and reboots. This is my third Bluetooth earpiece but the first on that causes the reboot. By the way, if I leave the headset turned on, everything works fine--I can answer the phone with no reboots. However, this will kill the battery in the headset as well as my phone as it keeps the bluetooth connection.
Ever since a new software download about 3 months ago I cannot connect my Jabra handsfree to my sensation. I can make the Jabra search for it but I have lost the option in my Sensation settings to "discover" a new handsfree device. It just sits there and times out. I go into my settings and get bluetooth on and it connects to the in car handsfree in my partners car but it can't find the jabra in my car.
I recently ordered a Droid 3, which came with free car dock and home dock. But when the phone is hooked up to the car dock-which is suppose to help the phone be "hands free"- the sound won't work. In other words, when I get a text and it says, "say Listen to hear your text" I can't ? This also happens when I try to use the navigation. I can see and it works fine, but I can't hear the instructions unless I take it off the dock, which is where I need it to be.
Since the 2.3.4 update (and the factory reset that went with it) I'm getting my notification sounds at night while in the charging cradle. I thought the cradle software was supposed to automatically mute those notification sounds, but there must be something I've not set right somewhere. Anyone know how to fix it?
I've searched here and several other forums without success for an answer to how to suppress the notification sound that occurs when inserting the Droid 3 into the HD dock. I did see another thread that seems to mention this but it deals more with ongoing notifications throughout the night and I don't have any problems with that. don't want to use silent mode because I want calls to come through, but I don't want the notification sound to play on insert. I've tried the Bedside dock app becuase it selectively suppresses notification sounds (no email alert, can choose phone or SMS alerts). Bedside works great to handle email notifications but it insn't active until after the dock insert sound has played.This is a real nusiance when my wife is already asleep when I place the phone in the dock.
When my phone is not in the navigation dock, the voice-guided GPS navigation works fine. But when I place the phone in the navigation dock, the voice-guided GPS navigation is suppressed so that there is no sound emitting from the devices speaker.
I picked up a standard dock for the Razr today and I noticed something odd about the volume. If I have my headphones plugged directly into the dock itself the volume is considerably lower and have to have the media volume all the way up. When I have the headphones plugged directly into the phone the sound levels are normal. Would really like to be able to just keep my headphones plugged into the back of the dock - how to increase the dock volume?
I have managed to sinc my Nokia Lumia 1020 and factory car charger with my vehicle radio via Bluetooth and it works fine for phone calls. However, turn-by-turn audible directions do not function when Bluetooth sinc is enabled. Voice commands from the maps are totally silent in this mode. That said, turn-by-turn directions DO work when not connected to Bluetooth, but only then. I am guessing that it is a software issue having to do with the navigation application that I am using and that came standard on this phone, but I do not know that for sure.
I bought my iphone online, but it's simlocked. Apparently only the original provider can remove the simlock, but I dont know who it is. Is there a way to discover this provider (through IMEI or other data from the phone)? I am searching for a legal way (which probably involves paying for the unlocking), but it would really suck if I bought an iphone which I can't even use ...
I just bought a car dock. It works great. I can't seem to get the audio to be transferred to my blueant supertooth 3. The bluetooth works perfectly with the phone but the directions for the navigation won't come through. I don't have an aux plug on my car radio. Am I missing some setting or some nuance to this setup?
I have an iPhone 5 16gb with iOS 8.1.1 that I used last night with my LuguLake Portable Bluetooth Speaker to listen to music. I've used this particular bluetooth speaker for about 3 months.Â
I turned the bluetooth speaker off, like I always do, but the sound did not return to my phone. It has not made any sound since last night before I used it with the speaker.Â
I tried restarting the phone twice, using it with the bluetooth speaker again (works fine), tried it with headphones (works fine), but otherwise it acts like the mute switch is on - and its not. I've even tried restoring the phone and it didn't make any noise, so I restored my backup, still no noise... What do I do?!!!!!Â
I have an otterbox case on my phone and do not recall dropping it recently. I never use the headphone port so it's not dirty but I cleaned it with a q-tip just for good measure. I don't know what else to try.Â
It seems like the phone won't disconnect from the bluetooth speaker even with bluetooth off.Â
I used the Bose IE2 in-ear headphone and mic combo just fine with my old iPhone and LaptopI really like these headphones and there were not cheap! I would like to use them with my new Lumia 920 but the MIC wont work. Is there any was to fix this?
I've been struggling with this issue for some time now, and haven't found any explanation. The issue is that if I am using turn-by-turn navigation software (that speaks directions) while my iPhone 4 is connected to a Bluetooth device, and the software hasn't given me directions for a minute or so, the connection seems to "go to sleep." When the next directions are issued, I miss the first part. For example, if the directions should have said "Get ready to turn left at Main Street," all I might hear is "at Main Street." Quite unhelpful!
Some details: I have tried two different navigation programs. I used MapQuest's free app for a while, and now am using the VZ Navigator app. Both had the same issue. I have also tried three different Bluetooth devices: a Plantronics Voyager headset, a Jabra headset and my car's Bluetooth speakerphone. All show the same behavior. Also, if I'm playing music through Bluetooth in my car, the problem goes away completely.
My conclusion is that the iPhone 4 is letting the connection with the Bluetooth device lapse when not in active use for some length of time, and it takes a few seconds to re-establish it. But that doesn't lead me to a solution. Anyone else experience this, and know of a fix for the problem? Is there any way to keep the connection alive without playing music, which I would obviously prefer not to do with a headset!
so my land rover has built-in bluetooth capability and is paired with my iphone. when i get into the car it connects and i can play my itunes through the car speakers and take calls etc .. all very nice.
when i get back in the house, all sound is gone from itunes and Internet etc...
i have tried a hard reboot.. nothing...
it seems to get stuck thinking it is still playing sound over bluetooth to my car?? that's all i can think of...
I have an E52 and I just got Bose headphones MIE2i.But the sound from the E522 is distorted, are the products not compatible?(I understand that the microphone on the headphones won't work, but the audio out?)
