    Hi, my Samsung Galaxy s3 wont connect Bluetooth to my Anker speaker. My son gave me this phone and I know it was connecting to his Bluetooth speaker. Any ideas?

    Some devices aren't compatible, different versions of Bluetooth sometimes won't work. I assume you tried to pair the speaker with the S3? ...

    Bluetooth is a method of sending data from one device to another. The format of the data, even the data itself, isn't specified - so some devices will pair and transfer, some will pair but not transfer and some won't even pair. We're years from full Bluetooth compatibility. (It took years before you could send a picture by MMS from one carrier to another.)

    However ... I suspect that your phone itself is defective. Pairing and using a speaker or headset is usually available in all Bluetooth devices.

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks for your reply. Yes I tried pairing the speaker with the phone but the phone doesn't discover the speaker. It immediately finds and pairs my laptop but not the speaker.

    Hi Rukbat,
    Thanks for your reply. I don't think the phone is defective as my Son had his BT speaker paired and working with this phone. Maybe I haven't got the settings right.
