Samsung Galaxy Note Bluetooth connection problem

by vejlager / June 13, 2012 7:53 AM PDT

I have a Philips Bluetooth stereo headset SHB9001 which works perfect with other devices, but my new Galaxy Note GT-N7000 cannot find it. Android 4.0.3. Please help.

I would contact the headset manufacturer.....

I suspect the headset is incompatible w/ Android 4.0.3. They may be working on a patch to enable connectivity. I guarantee that Samsung would advise you do the same thing.

Make the call.

Call 1800SAMSUNG to ask for a fix, help and if not, return it as defective.

But I know a little too much about bluetooth. I find the industry misfired on this one. That is, why would we expect folk to go in controls, turn it on, pair with codes and more today? Setup alone is not easy enough and try as I may in my apps I can't count on the API to always work.

Make the call and be ready to give it back.

We can't connect an iPhone bluetooth to most data connected bluetooth devices.

WHY!!! Apple decided to mandate a communications coprocessor that your average PC, bluetooth device will not have.

So this locks out most bluetooth transfers.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
