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. Okay, so I’ve already asked this once, but there’s a bit of plot development to be shown here. Here’s the gist of this:

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 (T-Mobile jfltetmo variant) and it does not play sound whatsoever. Youtube and other video apps don’t play video, and if they do, one frame every few seconds. The dialer even freezes when playing the touch tones.

    Now for the new developments.

    So it was about 3 hours after i asked this question, and I decided I’d try a voice recorder app built into the ROM I was using. It was then when I figured out the microphone also wasn’t working. So, about 40 minutes later, I try hooking it up to my Bluetooth speaker. Low and behold, it was working. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “well that’s probably not gonna end well”.

    You’re right.

    When I disconnected, the speakers, earpiece and mic still didn’t work, but the Bluetooth audio worked fine.

    Anybody got any ideas? I’ve scoured the internet 18 hours a day for the past 2 weeks and can’t find anything, so it might be unique.
