Samsung Galaxy S4 Bluetooth Headset Problem

Galaxy S4 Bluetooth Headset Problem

We have been receiving numerous reports about the Samsung Galaxy S4 Bluetooth headset problem. In fact we have already published an article that tackled this problem titled, Galaxy S4 Problem in Pairing with the Nokia Bluetooth Headset.

But, as mentioned, the questions related to this issue just keep on piling up in our Mailbag, so we decided to conduct further research about the problem.

According to one contributor in the DoubleTwist forum, Samsung has already acknowledged this problem. Then, the same contributor was apparently advised by Samsung to perform the necessary steps to resolve the issue. Below are the steps mentioned by Samsung, but it should be noted that these haven’t been tested yet:

Step 1 – Starting from the Home screen, select Applications.

Step 2 – Go to Settings.

Step 3 – Proceed to Applications Manager.

Step 4 – Choose the All tab.

Step 5 – Scroll down the list until you get to the Bluetooth Share portion.

Step 6 – Tap Clear Data and Clear Cache.

Step 7 – Shut down the Samsung Galaxy S4 normally.

Step 8 – Wait for around 10 to 15 seconds.

Step 9 – After the mentioned time lapses, switch your device on.

Another contributor stated that turning off the Samsung S Voice feature will also solve the Galaxy S4 Bluetooth headset problem. However, it seems that this solution only worked for a number of users.

Based on the XDA Developers forum, you can access the option to disable S Voice through Settings followed by App Manager.

The Galaxy S4 Bluetooth headset problem can also be fixed by unpairing the device and pairing it again. This process can be performed under the Bluetooth configuration of the phone which can be accessed through Settings.

  1. This is sort of obvious but easy to miss. I had problems with pairing some BT headphones to my Samsung S4 phone. I tried clearing the cache, restarting etc but it was just not working. Then I thought, I’ll test them in my Nexus 7 tablet. Haha, then I found they were already paired to that device. So I unpaired them and, voila, they worked fine in my S4 phone. So don’t forget to check the obvious: are they connected elsewhere?

  2. I did all of these suggestions and it worked. Before, I could get maybe 2 minutes of good music with my LG HBS-730 before it started to “skip” A LOT.. So far it has been playing for about 6 songs or more and still playing good.
