Want To Use Bluetooth? Here’s How:

Find out what Bluetooth is, how to use, and why you should use it.

Ready to see what else your phone can do? Bluetooth is a common feature that Tracfone customers love to use. If you’re not familiar with it, Bluetooth is a type of technology nearly all phones come with. Yours probably does, too! The great thing about Bluetooth is that it’s super convenient and easy to use, and it can really help enhance your life in ways you might not expect, from enjoying your favorite tunes to finding unfamiliar destinations and even staying healthy.

What is Bluetooth, anyway?

You’ve probably heard of Bluetooth before, but you may not know exactly what it is. Essentially, it allows you to connect two devices to each other. Instead of using cables to connect them, Bluetooth does it wirelessly. Here are some examples of devices you could connect your phone to via Bluetooth:

  • Headphones/earphones
  • Speakers
  • Computers/laptops
  • Cars

Bluetooth makes it easy to do a number of things.

Once your devices are connected, Bluetooth makes it easy to do a number of things. For example, you can connect a Bluetooth headset to chat hands-free as you shop, work, or run errands. When you head to the gym, a pair of Bluetooth headphones will let you listen to music without the hassle of cables to restrict your movements.

How else can you use Bluetooth? It’s an easy way to wirelessly transfer the photos on your phone to your computer or other compatible devices, as well as any other files you’d like to share. If you use a fitness tracker, heart rate monitor, or other tracking device with Bluetooth technology, you can sync data with apps on your phone for easy data sharing. And if your car’s stereo system is compatible, you can connect via Bluetooth to stream music, make and take calls, and use navigation apps.

How to use Bluetooth

Excited to try out Bluetooth? Follow these steps.

Step 1: Turn on Bluetooth on your phone (Not sure how? Tracfone has tutorials available in the Support Center)

Step 2: Find another device you want to connect your phone to (earphones, speaker, car, etc.)

Step 3: “Pair” the devices together (the Bluetooth device, such as earphones, will come with instructions on how to do this)

Step 4: Enjoy!

After you’ve paired them once, your phone will remember that device from now on. So, the next time you want to listen to music on your Bluetooth earphones, it will be as simple as turning them on and pressing “play.”
