    Thanks, a factory reset was all that was needed.

    Ok, I know now what caused the issue - enabling internal storage encryption. Anyone care to try that to confirm?

    Did I ever! I described this issue in greater detail on XDA too. Waiting to hear owners' replies.

    my HTC One X worked fine on bluetooth in my BMW M6 until two weeks ago when it simply quit working on the car's bluetooth; I deleted each device from each other and attempted in vain to pair... now the phone claims the car rejects it? All other bluetooth devices work with the car and BMW confirms nothing wrong on that end.

    Does anyone know of a solution?

    Thanks

    Had a problem pairing in a noisy garage once. Electronic noise from equipment in the garage. I could pair anywhere else but in that garage.

    Tune the am radio off station and if you hear lots of loud noise, not just the usual static, it can prevent pairing.

    This looks like the case with Samsung Galaxy S4 too. When I remove encryption, the bluetooth works fine. I have posted a detailed question on this forum, but I cant paste the link as I have very less post count.

    Its good that HTC fixed it. No clue when Samsung is going to fix it.

    I noticed my Bluetooth stopped working in our new car. So, I tried fixing it in the car, then looked on my Droid Maxx, and seen it stopped working on that device. Should I reset it to factory settings, and what will happen if I do that? Everything else works great on the Droid, but I can't figure out why the Bluetooth settings stopped. Any suggestions is appreciated.

    When did it stop working? Was there a change in the software on the droid when it stopped?

    Is there any other phone that you can test pairing with the car?

    You have to determine where the problem actually is before you start fixing things. It could be just that the car was already paired with another phone at the time.

    One other possibility I ran into was trying to pair with my car while it was sitting in the garage. So much radio noise out there it could never pair, but If I just backed the car out and away from the garage it worked fine. (Cordless tool battery chargers make a hella radio noise. Looking at you RYOBI ).

    Its unusual for bluetooth to stop working once you get it working. They never seem to burn out or anything. And my bluetooth connections remained after I upgraded to Marshmallow without me having to set them up again. So its unlikely a factory reset is necessary. Simply power all the way off, and back on again, and try pairing with any other device to prove it works.
