    I recently started having problems with my Note 3 phone where the bluetooth function will enable on its own. Even when I move to switch off bluetooth, it will turn on again after a few minutes. I have tried rebooting/restarting the phone after replacing batteries, but the problem comes back.

    I think there was some minor software upgrade for my phone recently, but I'm not sure what is causing this. Any help in terms of troubleshooting would be very much appreciated.

    Do you have NFC or S Beam turned on?
    Do you have any apps installed for hands free operation?
    Any file transfer apps with auto backup settings?
    Any apps that automate tasks?
    Do you see anything in your running apps or cached apps when this happens that use Bluetooth at all?
    Call apps, media apps, radio apps, anything that could have settings to use a Bluetooth headset?

    NFC/S beam are turned off. I don't have any hands-free apps or auto backup setting that I am aware of. I don't use any bluetooth devices with the phone so I have not installed any app that I am aware of that would enable bluetooth at this point.

    Is there a way to search for apps that might be trying to turn on my bluetooth? If it is a non-essential program I suppose I could try deleting it and see if the situation changes.
