How To Pair Bluetooth Devices On Samsung Galaxy Note 2

The Bluetooth pairing process allows you to establish trusted connections between your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 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:

Verify Bluetooth is active.

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.

Tap Scan. Your device displays a list of discovered in-range Bluetooth devices.

Tap a device from the list to initiate pairing.

Enter the passkey or PIN code, if needed, and tap OK.

The external device must accept the connection and enter your device’s PIN code. Once successfully paired to an external device, Bluetooth device paired icon displays in the Status area.

Note: Due to different specifications and features of other Bluetooth-compatible devices, display and operations may be different, and functions such as transfer or exchange may not be possible with all Bluetooth-compatible devices.

Note: If callers cannot hear you during a call while using a paired Bluetooth headset (with built-in microphone), verify the Call audio option is enabled within the entry’s Bluetooth Settings page.

How to disconnect a paired Bluetooth Device on Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Disconnecting a paired device breaks the connection between the device and your phone, but retains the knowledge of the pairing. At a later point when you wish to reconnect the device, there is no need to setup the connection information again.

Verify your Bluetooth is active.

From the Bluetooth settings page, tap the previously paired device (from the bottom of the page).

Tap OK to confirm disconnection.

Note: Disconnections are manually done but often occur automatically if the paired device goes out of range of your phone or it is powered off.

How to delete a paired Bluetooth Device on Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Deleting a device from your list removes its “connection record” and upon reconnection would require that you re-enter all the previous pairing information.

Verify Bluetooth is active.

From the Bluetooth settings page, tap Settings icon > Unpair to delete the paired device.
