    Hello,
    My Samsung Galaxy S II is not detecting any Bluetooth devices after searching for devices , I turned on my other phone's Bluetooth it's a Samsung GT-S5233W...

    And when I search for Bluetooth devices using my other old GT-S5233W Samsung, it can normally detect the Samsung Galaxy S II device...

    Oh my god!! Galaxy S II cannot detect and the old can!!??

    It's only when I try to send a file via Bluetooth, when I click Send Via Bluetooth, then I get the screen:

    Bluetooth device picker

    Search for devices

    Bluetooth devices

    And the other Samsung is not detected.

    but I can see in the Bluetooth settings: Samsung (Paired).


    Any help please?

    It is a still new Galaxy S II just bought yesterday.

    Edit

    Yes, I discovered that I should use the choice: Share music via and select Bluetooth, it then shows up the available Bluetooth devices.

    But just why Bluetooth devices aren't shown when choosing Via Bluetooth ?
    So what is the Via Bluetooth choice used for?

    Not sure what you are doing wrong... But I know you suppose to make device visible, then find the device. Also suppose to have a code indicating you can connect, which is probably for security reasons.

    The share via bluetooth is just a quick shortcut so that if you have bluetooth connection, it will just go straight to that. At least that's what I found.
