I have a Samsung bluetooth that for some reason won't connect to my SGS2. It was connected and working fine and I walked out of range with it and haven't been able to get it to connect since. My bluetooth is charged and on...it's recognized as a paired device under my bluetooth settings, but it won't connect for calls. When i try to connect it, it just says "Connecting..." and then nothing happens.
Anyone have advice??? I appreciate the help!
So sorry you are having this problem! Have you already tried powering off the phone and the bluetooth and turning back on? And if so, have you tried re-pairing the bluetooth to the device?
I have run into that problem also. I have to restart my phone in order to fix it.

Turning my phone off worked, thanks!
Glad to hear that fixed it!
I have had the same problem and it is very frustrating. My phone list also doesn't show up on my car Bluetooth. BOO!!!
Is this a bluetooth that is built into the car? If so what is the year make and model of your car? and i'm assuming that you are using a samsung galaxy II? If not what are you using? With this information we can check compatibilty.
Also your phone bluetooth needs to be on AND discoverable or visible, have you set this to on?
I seem to be having a problem with this as well. When i do restart my phone it will sync to the car for a few mintues before the bluetooth on my phone turns off. I didn't have any problems with this until just recently.
Are you using a samsung galaxy II? and what is the make and model of your car? and you said the bluetooth on the device turns off, do you mean you would have to go back into the settings and actually turn it back on?
I have the same problem with my Plantronics Voyager 520 headset - I have to restart my phone or headset to get it to connect sometimes. It'll see it and say they are paired, but refuses to connect. Annoying.
Yes its the the Galaxy S II. My car is a 2010 Mazda3. I have to turn the bluetooth on the phone back on and if that doesnt work i have to restart the phone again.
Okay well I checked mazda's website and the galaxy II is indeed compatible with your vehicle, do you have the option of pairing and using the phone with a different bluetooth device say like an earpiece for testing purposes? This will tell us if this is an issue with the phone directly or specifically with the link to the car.
I have a 2009 Hyundai Genesis. I had the galaxy Vibrant prior to this phone. The bluetooth would connect and stay connected. When I got the Galaxy S 2, I have my phone paired to my car. I can get into the car and have the bluetooth connect. If I make a call right away, the bluetooth will stay connected through the call no problem. If I make a second call immediately following the first call, again, no problem. The problem is when the phone is idle for a few minutes (2 or 3), the bluetooth disconnects for no reason whatsoever, then the only way to be able to make a bluetooth call again is by turning the phone off then back on again. Otherwise, the only way to make or receive calls is by holding the phone to my ear, which I really don't like to do when I'm driving. There has to be some resolution to this.
gonna reply to a few of these Bluetooth threads so T-Mobile will address the issue in an update. the BT is flakey. both mine and my brothers sgs2 have issues... random ones. resetting doesn't fix it. pass this along, Keith M. lots of people having problems
I am having problems with the SG2 connecting to bluetooth in my 2011 Toyota Sienna. Very lame. Clearly there is a problem with the bluetooth. I have to reboot the phone, turn on and off bluetooth (which can take forever).
The phone will show it is paired with the car, but it is not. My old HTC never had a problem. I am using the SIM that came with the phone.
Samsung/Tmobile need to get a software upgrade out to fix this. Bluetooth is effectively useless in my car it takes so long to connect if ever.
Can't believe such a basic feature in a phone today does not work, especially since so many states require hands free to drive.
off topic: (The wifi calling upgrade on my wife's HTC Amaze today works well, her bluetooth also works) Wonder how long SG2 owners will have to wait for that, something I need for my basement home office and one of the prime reasons I switched last month)
