Turning On Bluetooth on Your Mobile Phone
Now that your computer is correctly configured, it’s time to turn on Bluetooth on your mobile phone. How to do this depends on the type of phone you have. We will try to help by sharing a few examples.
On smartphones running the Android operating system (version 2.1 or 2.2), go to Settings -> Wireless & Networks, and then simply select the Bluetooth check box.
On Sony Ericsson phones, go to Settings -> Connectivity -> Bluetooth, and then choose Turn On.
For Nokia phones (which are more popular in Europe), the setup is very similar to Sony Ericsson: go to Settings -> Connectivity -> Bluetooth. Here you simply need to change the value of the Bluetooth field to On.
