    This may belong on a different board, but I have a Verizon S4 so I'm starting here.

    My power button switch failed over the weekend. I had it repaired at a cell phone repair shop and now my Bluetooth doesn't work. It won't turn on and if it does it won't connect to any paired devices. I took it back to the repair shop and they found no hardware reason for this issue. I realize it could be a software/app issue, but it seems fishy that it started after the repair. Any thoughts? The issue seems to be intermittently affecting my WiFi and texting. If I can't find an answer I'm looking at upgrading.

    I already tried that. The WiFi is not staying connected or even on sometimes when it did before and when either the Bluetooth or WiFi are trying to connect, texts won't go through.

    If your wi-fi is off, does Bluetooth connect successfully?

    I got it to turn on and connect once when the WiFi was off, but otherwise. I think the antenna was damaged when the new power button was soldered on.

    Wi-fi can sometimes interfere with Bluetooth. It might be more noticeable on phones that have wi-fi calling (which I assume yours doesn't, since it's a Verizon phone). For example, I've noticed that on my Nexus 6P on T-Mobile, Bluetooth connections seem to drop out when wi-fi calling is turned on.
