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

    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!

    Hope this helps. Couldn't connect my bluetooth earbuds to my S5 until I held the on button down on the earbuds until it said "pairing" and then it showed up on the phone and paired with it.

    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!

    Thanks a lot Curtis Reddehase. You are a life savior. I thought my device had some issue with Bluetooth and so i was about to take it to service center. But your post made my day and thus saving my time going to service center and waiting there till i get it back. Thanks a lot......

    Me: mine was connecting perfectly to WiFi and Bluetooth and suddenly stopped now I can't get it to connect to anything & I've tried all of these suggestions in this Thread

    UPDATE: I just tried force stopping ALL Bluetooth apps and clearing all their caches then tried to pair like they we brand new devices and connection made and working! YAY!

    So how do I force stop Bluetooth and clear caches?

    Hi all. I've got a LG4 that wasn't pairing with my blue piston BT speakers for the first phone. What finally worked was that I had to hit the "search" icon on the bottom right of the Bluetooth screen on the LG4. It didn't automatically start looking for devices like my iphone had done. Also, not sure if this was related but when the speaker wasn't connecting, there was a cable connected to the speaker (the same one that connects to the USB on the computer for charging) when I unplugged that, It seemed to pair. It's worth a try anyway...

    Verizon fixed this for me quickly. Turn phone off. Now hold down on button ten seconds. This soft reset fixed the problem for me.
