Bluetooth wireless technology
Bluetooth wireless technology enables short-range (about 10 m) communication, including voice, audio, and
data transfer, between Bluetooth-compatible devices such as phones, hands-free accessories, and
computers.
Bluetooth wireless technology allows you to take advantage of a wide variety of features. For example, you
can connect a compatible headset and talk on the phone or listen to music, or connect to your car stereo
and listen to music and other content stored on your phone through your car stereo and enjoy hands-free
phone conversations in the car. You can also use Bluetooth wireless technology to send and receive data
such as pictures, videos, and contacts with another Bluetooth device.
Bluetooth settings
In order to use your phone with another Bluetooth device, you must first register your phone and the other
device to each other. This is called “pairing”. In order to pair with each other, your phone and the other
device must be able to find each other using Bluetooth wireless technology. This is done by making your
phone “discoverable” by the other device, or vice versa.

Troubleshooting
The phone is hot
When you use apps that require more power or when you use apps for an extended period of time, the
phone may feel hot to the touch. This is normal and should not affect the phone’s life span or performance.
I cannot make or receive calls
• Reception may be poor in the current location. Move to another area and try again.
• Confirm that the phone is connected to the correct network.
• You may have enabled calling features such as call forwarding or fixed dialling, which are preventing
the phone from making/receiving calls.
Calls are being dropped
The signal may be weak or reception may be poor. Move to another area and try again.
I cannot make calls to contacts
Make sure you have entered the correct phone number for the contact.
I can only make emergency calls
• Confirm that the SIM card is inserted properly.
• Confirm that the phone is connected to the correct network.
The other party cannot hear my voice
• Make sure you are not covering the microphone.
• Make sure that you are speaking into the microphone and that the microphone is not too far from your
mouth.
• If you are using a headset, make sure the headset is connected properly.
• Reception may be poor in the current location. Move to another area and try again.
I cannot open or receive a file
The phone does not support the file type, or there is not enough available memory to receive the file.
I cannot play certain songs
Confirm that the file type is supported by the phone.
I cannot use Internet-based services
Make sure that the Internet and network settings in your phone are correct. See page
“Connecting to mobile networks” (page 21) for more information. Contact your mobile network operator for
more information.
The SIM card is locked
If you have enabled the SIM lock feature, the SIM card must be unlocked each time your phone is turned
on.
If the unlock code is entered incorrectly 3 times, it becomes PUK-locked and can only be unlocked with
the operator-provided PUK (Personal Unblocking Key). Contact your mobile network operator for more
information.
The SIM card is PUK-locked
Once the SIM card is PUK-locked, it can only be unlocked with the operator-provided PUK (Personal
Unblocking Key). If the PUK is entered incorrectly 10 times, the SIM card can no longer be used and you
must replace the SIM card. Contact your mobile network operator for more information.
