How To Pair Bluetooth - Samsung Galaxy Tab 4

Learn how to pair Bluetooth device on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Use the Bluetooth pairing process to establish a trusted connection 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.

To pair your device with another Bluetooth device:

  • Verify your Bluetooth is active.
  • Touch Scan. Your device will display a list of discovered in-range Bluetooth devices.
  • Touch a device from the list to initiate pairing.
  • Enter the passkey or PIN code, if needed, and touch OK.
  • The external device will then have to also accept the connection and enter your devices PIN code.

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: Pairing between two Bluetooth devices is a one-time process. Once a pairing has been created, the devices will continue to recognize their partnership and exchange information without having to re-enter a passcode again.

Rename or Unpair a Paired Device

  • Unpair a paired device to break the connection between the device and your tablet, but retain the knowledge of the pairing.
  • At a later point when you want to reconnect the device, there is no need to setup the connection information again.

Note: Disconnections often occur automatically if the paired device goes out of range of your tablet or it is powered off. Upon reconnection, you may be required to re-enter all the previous pairing information.

  • Verify your Bluetooth is active.
  • From the Bluetooth settings screen, touch Settings icon next to the previously paired device. This opens the connected devices menu options.
  • Touch Rename to change the name of the paired device.
  • Touch Unpair to unpair from the paired device.
