    I had an S4 for 2 years and it worked flawlessly. I only paired once with my 2013 Hyundai. Since then, I upgraded to S6 and now I have to pair every couple of days because it says "pairing failed".

    One of the people commented that they used NFC to pair. How do you do that?

    Thanks!

    Just upgraded to a new S6 128GB on Sprint yesterday from an old S3. My old S3 happily pairs automatically with the Bluetooth in my 2013 Focus every day without issue. Paired the new S6 with the car yesterday and it seemed fine, auto paired again after work with no issue. This morning it would not connect to my car's Bluetooth, kept messing with turning Bluetooth on and off, telling the car to connect, messing with menu settings. Finally it paired after I rebooted the phone and fiddled with it some more, very frustrating. I found a thread on the Verizon community complaining about this very issue with the S6 pairing with in-vehicle Bluetooth.

    Anybody else having issues pairing the S6 with your car? Is there maybe something wrong with the Bluetooth radio or software stack? The device works fine with my Android Wear watch, stays paired without issue, but I haven't really gotten to try any other Bluetooth accessories yet (the BT adapter in my truck, BT speakers at home, BT headphones, etc).
    Have you tried removing the old device? I couldnt get my s6 to pair with my kenwood, when my s5 had no problem. Un paired my s5 and now my s6 is good to go.

    I have a 2013 Subaru Impreza Sport and my S3 and the 1st Gen Galaxy Nexus I had to downgrade to when I dropped and smashed my S3 both synched flawlessly with my car. With the S6 I have to do it manually every time I get into the car. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries to get it to pair. Sometimes it only pairs for media. Sometimes it pairs for calls and media. SO F***ING FRUSTRATING!!!
