Send Information Using Bluetooth

You can use Bluetooth to transfer information between your phone and another Bluetooth-enabled device such as a phone or computer. The first time you transfer information between your phone and another phone, you need to enter or confirm a security passcode. After that, your phone and the other phone are paired, and you will not need to exchange passcodes to transfer information in the future.

Important: Before you begin, set the receiving phone to discoverable mode. You may also need to set it to "Receive Beams" or "Receive Files." Refer to the phone’s documentation for instructions on receiving information over Bluetooth.

You can send the following types of information, depending on the phone you are sending to:

  1. On your phone, open the application that contains the information or file you want to send.
  2. Follow the steps for the type of item you want to send:
