Nokia 7.2

Bluetooth®

You can connect wirelessly to other compatible devices, such as phones, computers, headsets, and car kits. You can also send your photos to compatible phones or to your computer.

Connect to a Bluetooth device

You can connect your phone with many useful Bluetooth devices. For example, with a wireless headset (sold separately), you can speak on the phone hands-free – you can continue what you're doing, such as working at your computer, during a call. Connecting a phone to a Bluetooth device is called pairing.

  1. Tap Settings > Connected devices > Connection preferences > Bluetooth.
  2. Switch Bluetooth to On.
  3. Make sure the other device is switched on. You may need to start the pairing process from the other device. For details, see the user guide for the other device.
  4. To pair your phone and the device, tap the device on the list of discovered Bluetooth devices.
  5. You may need to type in a passcode. For details, see the user guide for the other device.

Since devices with Bluetooth wireless technology communicate using radio waves, they do not need to be in direct line-of-sight. Bluetooth devices must, however, be within 10 meters (33 feet) of each other, although the connection may be subject to interference from obstructions such as walls or from other electronic devices.

Paired devices can connect to your phone when Bluetooth is switched on. Other devices can detect your phone only if the Bluetooth settings view is open.

Do not pair with or accept connection requests from an unknown device. This helps to protect your phone from harmful content.

Share your content using Bluetooth

If you want to share your photos or other content with a friend, send them to your friend's phone using Bluetooth.

You can use more than one Bluetooth connection at a time. For example, while using a Bluetooth headset, you can still send things to another phone.

  1. Tap Settings > Connected devices > Connection preferences > Bluetooth.
  2. Make sure Bluetooth is switched on in both phones and the phones are visible to each other.
  3. Go to the content you want to send, and tap share > Bluetooth.
  4. On the list of found Bluetooth devices, tap your friend's phone.
  5. If the other phone needs a passcode, type in or accept the passcode, and tap Pair.

The passcode is only used when you connect to something for the first time.

Remove a pairing

If you no longer have the device with which you paired your phone, you can remove the pairing.

  1. Tap Settings > Connected devices > Previously connected devices.
  2. Tap settings next to a device name.
  3. Tap FORGET.
