So whets the solution for this problem or any other Bluetooth related problem?


I’m including here best solutions to the problem. Hope you get them solved. Unfortunately, if not? Then move on to the Samsung’s service center or you can go to cellular carrier’s service center as well.

    1. You can reset your Bluetooth device so that all the settings get back to normal and then connect it with your device. Hopefully the problem will get solved.
    2. Check out the settings of Bluetooth. There must be something which you’re still missing to touch. Make sure the Bluetooth and device are sync well.
    3. When Bluetooth device is connected then you’ll see a notification related to connectivity. Tap on the settings gear there and make sure you check both media and call options.
    4. If you’ve paired your device and facing the problem then you need to unpair it first and then do the pairing again.
    5. This one you may like or may not. It’s an app known by Cyberon Voice. It is available in lots of languages but you need to pay for it. The app is worth of its price and available at the GooglePlay store. Installing this app will solve every problem that you’re facing right now with Bluetooth connectivity.

If nothing works then you should look for firmware update. Samsung has provided firmware updates for both the devices and fixed all these bugs. Connect device to PC with Kies running and check for firmware updates. If you find any update then install it.

    My S3 stopped communicating with my truck and my lg tone headset after a recent patch. They replaced my phone but it still does not function. I can force it to play but its like it does not exist. My truck says there are no blue tooth apps running on my phone over and over again.
