    Hi,
    I have phone with Android 5.0 . Since upgrade on this version of android, I have problem with Bluetooth. I cant find any device. I tried connect to my handsfree ( hands free is in pairing mode, in notebook I can see it). It starts searching, but no device was found.

    I tried any solutions, like turne of Smart lock, cleae cache. But the problem is still here :-/

    Please, can anybody help me, what to do?

    Just out of curiosity, when you updated to 5.0, did you happen to factory reset to rid any bugs?

    BT can be a very aggravating animal..
    I have nearly always had problems getting it to pair up properly...

    what I have finally deciphered is the sequence you use.

    First, get the phone into Search/Scanning mode.

    Then press and hold the BT device to force it into Search mode....
    that, for me, has been working most of the time, the first time now.

    As it's been factory reset. Are we sure that the 5.0 update didn't break Bluetooth on this device, i.e. a bug. Could be worth checking with the manufacturer about it. Like they might need to push another update to fix it. What phone is it?

    Oh yeh out of interest, what manufacturer is now only just updating to 5.0. Most upgrade updates are now either 5.1.1 or 6.0. 5.0 Lollipop had some serious issues with it, like a memory leak, as well as Stagefreight vulnerability.
