    Curtis - that was it! Holding down the Bose speaker's button worked! I never had to do that before to pair it with other devices, so I hadn't thought of it before reading your post. Thanks!!

    Okay...I have figured out why the S5 is not connecting as easily as my Iphone was. After you got to settings and you turn bluetooth on and then check the square box to make your phone discoverable before you hit scan make sure that the object that you are pairing with is in the pairing mode or else it will not pair with that device. I just did my car, my portable Bose speaker my plantronics headset...etc...etc.. all is working perfect!

    Hope this helps everyone!

    Definitely helped me. The salesman paired my previous device when I bought the car so I didn't have to know that - until now. LOL Thanks much.

    Thanks Curtis. Worked for me! I've just bought a Bluetooth wireless headset from Red dot and couldn't pair it. Once the headset was turned on just holding down the on/ off button until the blue light stopped flashing enabled my S5 to find it and pair up. Why can't this be a basic instruction?

    Wow, I searched a long time to find this method except I have a cheapo (but decent) JABRA bluetooth headset. It has a single button and yes you must hold down the button while beginning to scan. The S5 found my device. Thank you so much!

    but once you got them synced, did it work the next time you tried to use it, like the next day? my s5 shows that it is paired with my car and even shows it being connected, but there is no sound coming out of the speakers.

    This worked for my Phillips bluetooth headphones. Continues holding the button down when you turn the headphones on.

    I found the answer!!!

    Hold the bluetooth button down on your Bose speaker while you are searching for it.

    It is not good enough just to hit the button and connect if it does not see it.

    Something about holding the button down while searching allows the phone to see it.

    I am finally back in music!

    I hope this helps!
    After months of searching online to no avail, you have given me the answer! Thanks SO MUCH, my Bose speaker is now usable once again

    Hi Folks! I don't have an S5 but I was looking for answers re: pairing my S4 with my platronics. It always worked then suddenly I lost the connection and couldn't get it back. Saw the 'holding down the on/off button' on the headset which didn't work.BUT I held down the 'answer call' button and 'voila'! It works! Thanks guys xxxxxxx

    Smt you need to buy special bt adapter for better sync between devices and it's possibli that samsung can use bt only for sync with some devices not with all.

    I'm trying to connect my s5 to a Sony sound bar, it uses an app to connect BT. My phone will not connect but my husbands note 3 works just fine. I'm not getting the same prompt to connect as he does, any suggestions?

    I had a similar issue and just resolved the issue. I went to the Bluetooth setting and unpaired what had already been "paired" and just paired/synced everything over again. Like starting everything over.

    Try holding down the Bluetooth button on your device while your phone scans for it. Got that advice from this thread and worked like a charm =)
