phone then the S3 will instruct you to start sending contacts to the S3 manually. To do this:
2. Go to your phonebook and select the contacts you want to send to the S3. Choose
the option to “Mark All” or “Select All” if this is available on your phone (if this is not
available, you will need to transfer each contact individually).
3. Select the option on your phone to “send” or “beam” contacts, business cards, or
v-cards via Bluetooth, and select the S3 from the list of Bluetooth devices. See your
phone’s manual for help with this step.

make sure you configure your phone to treat the S3 as an “authorized” or “trusted”

The S3 supports A2DP audio streaming. If your phone supports the A2DP profile then
simply start playing music or any other audio (including turn-by-turn directions from a
GPS application on your phone) and it will automatically transfer to the S3.
Note: When there are two phones connected, only the primary phone can play music
through the S3 via A2DP.

The streaming audio mutes automatically if the phone rings.
From time to time we make firmware upgrades available on our website for you to
download and apply to your S3. Go to for full details on the
latest upgrades available for your S3.
