    I am guessing both of these aren't rooted... completely stock right? Have you tried factory resetting them?

    Well if you rooted it u can do the zip to repair it or you can copy and paste the bluetooth apps from the rom or from a factory zvd file . And paste them in the systems file and when it ask u if you want to override the apps that are present just click yes to all and power off device and power back on and u should have blue tooth ......you can do this for both phones the one rooted and the nonrooted one

    do you know what rom it has on it? if you go to settings and then about phone and scroll down to build number it will tell you what its running.

    what part of Michigan are you from? I'm from south east.
