    When I go to the running apps on my Samsung galaxy s5 active it shows blue tooth running even though I have it off on my phone. I force stop it but it does not stop. What can I do?

    Something must be invoking the BT service.

    Your second images shows "GattService" as the running process, and that it was "started by application". GATT (Generic Attribute Profile) is a BT specification that essentially describes how individual BT devices interoperate.

    Do you, for example, have S-Health enabled? This may have invoked the BT service in an attempt to find and connect with a heart rate monitor using the HRP profile.

    I realize that you posted this answers years ago, but I was seeing if you could help me with a follow up question? If so, when the GattService is running in the background even with bluetooth turned off, you mentioned that other apps can trigger it to try and pair with a monitor, etc..

    Is there anyway to go in and search for the specific app or apps that are the culprit? You can email me at chrisdemon2007@gmail.com (likely to see first) or reply on this forum. Please and thank you for your time.
