    Ok, so at least the phone doesn't shut down when you turn off Bluetooth, right?

    Go to Settings>Location and tap Menu>Scanning. Is Bluetooth Scanning turned on?

    By menu, where can i find it? Do you mean the options 'High Accuracy, 'Battery saving' & 'Device only'?

    I looked at an image of your phone -- it looks like it has capacitative buttons at the bottom. Is the left button a Menu button or a Recent apps button?

    The actual phone has off screen button, but at the settings it looks the same. The button on the right you mean is the recent apps button. Also the phone is called the Cherry Mobile J1s. Forgot to put the S.

    Oh, I see. The J1s has a different button setup, with the Back button on the left and the Recent Apps button on the right.

    Go to Settings>Bluetooth, then tap the menu button at the upper right. Is there an option for Advanced or Scanning there?

    This is the screen shot of his actual phone. There's no option for Advance or Scanning.

    It doesn't happen in safe mode. I can turn it off just fine.

    Welcome to Android Central! This would suggest that some app you installed is causing instability, and forcing a shutoff for some reason when you turn off Bluetooth. Unfortunately, unless you have some idea of which app might be the problem, you'd have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem goes away.

    Welcome to Android Central! You're jumping onto a thread that's 9 months old, and all you replied was "Yes." It's hard to know if you're having the exact same issue with the exact same phone as the OP, or if you might have a different situation. Please give us more details, thanks!
