Hi everyone. This is my first post and I usually don't bother with forums as they seem long-winded and hard to wade through, so I feel like I'm stuck in a treacle maze at the moment. Tried to find an answer, but I think either people are just not having this issue, or I am using completely different words to describe the issue - I haven't found anything here. Whenever I turn on my Bluetooth radio, it tries to automatically reconnect to a previously connected device (no pattern to which device it tries to connect to, as yet. I thought it was simply the previous device, but it seems to be the previous 'headset' and not just a speaker connection for media, nor my hi-fi BT receiver.) IMHO this misguided attempt by Android to connect to a BT device which is not even there is bafflingly stupid! Is there a config option to make the Android phone either check before it connects, or just doesn't try to reconnect at all? I've seen a suggestion for installing another app on my phone to do this, but am loathed to just continually adding software to customise my device, when it should just be a configurable option. Is Google really that convinced that this feature is needed and wanted by everyone without exception and nobody will have any issues with waiting 30+ seconds before being able to use their BT? I am incredibly frustrated by this every time I try to use BT - It looks unprofessional and desperately cludgy. I have rooted my device (as I think that any lesser access would make the phone 'not mine') so I can access all system files, etc, to change this abhorrent and infuriating behaviour if at all possible. Many thanks for any help or pointers. James I presume this is a 'thread' (question) so I will click 'Create Thread' (ask question) Let me know if it's just a normal post or if I do anything wrong, won't you?
