The Bluetooth pairing process allows you to establish trusted
connections between your device and another Bluetooth
device. When you pair devices, they share a passkey,
allowing for fast, secure connections while bypassing the
discovery and authentication process.
Note: Pairing between two Bluetooth devices is a one-time
process. Once pairing is established the devices
continue to recognize their partnership and exchange
information without entering a passcode.
To pair your device with another Bluetooth device:
1. Verify Bluetooth is active.
2. From the Bluetooth settings page, tap the Visibility field
(shown by the device name).
Your device must be visible to successfully pair with an
external device. This is shown by a green check mark.
3. Tap Scan. Your device displays a list of discovered inrange Bluetooth devices.
4. Tap a device from the list to initiate pairing.
5. Enter the passkey or PIN code, if needed, and tap OK.

Bluetooth-compatible devices, display and operations
may be different, and functions such as transfer or
exchange may not be possible with all Bluetoothcompatible devices.
Configuring Bluetooth Device Settings
Some connected Bluetooth devices are capable of more than
just functioning as a headphone, but also have built in
microphones for picking up voice. Although both functions
are detected by the device and activated, there might be
times when you need to change or update these settings for
Phone and Media Audio:
• I can hear the other person but they can’t hear me...
• I want to use my Bluetooth device only as a headphone
