Learn how to use Bluetooth Settings on your LG G2. Bluetooth is a short-range communications technology that allows you to connect wirelessly to a number of Bluetooth devices, such as headsets and hands-free car kits, and Bluetooth-enabled handhelds, computers, printers, and wireless devices. The Bluetooth communication range is usually up to approximately 30 feet.

How to send data from your phone via Bluetooth

You can send data via Bluetooth by running a corresponding application, not from the Bluetooth menu.

Note

  • The supported Bluetooth version is Bluetooth 4.0 and certified by Bluetooth SIG. It is compatible with other Bluetooth SIG certified devices.
  • 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.
  • Supported profiles are HFP/HSP, A2DP, AVRCP, OPP, FTP(Server), HID, PAN, MAP and PBAP.

To switch between a Bluetooth headset and the phone

When a Bluetooth headset is paired and connected to your phone, you can conduct calls on the headset for hands-free conversation. During a call, you can opt to use the Bluetooth headset or just the phone. When using the Bluetooth headset during a call, the Ongoing Call notification icon is blue in the Status Bar (the icon is green when using the phone).

Note: Tap the Bluetooth button to switch the call from the phone to the Bluetooth device, or vice versa.
