How do I pair a device with my Jolla using Bluetooth?

Jolla -

Note: Before you start 'pairing' a device with your Jolla, please check your device manual to see how to pair them. It is common that with accessories such as headsets or speakers you have to press the power button of a Bluetooth-device for a long time until the notification LED blinks rapidly (often in blue colour). Then the device is ready for pairing.


To pair a device:

Tap on Settings icon-launcher-settings.png

  • Then tap on 'System'
  • Under the ‘Connectivity’ headline; tap on ‘Bluetooth’ [#]
  • Tap to switch Bluetooth on. Change the device name if you want.
  • Pull down and search for Bluetooth devices
  • You can now see a list of all devices you can connect to
  • Tap on the device you want to connect to in section Other devices nearby.
  • Your Jolla will now ask you to ‘accept’ the connection. Your Jolla and the device to-be connected should show the same 6-digit code (if the other device has a display).
    -Do accept the connection if the codes match.
  • Decide if you always want to allow connections between these devices automatically. Otherwise, you will need to set the connection on in this menu page every time you need it.
  • Now this device appears under Paired devices. Tap and hold it to see that there is a contect menu with actions for this device.


[#] Note that you can make Bluetooth one of your favourite settings by tapping and holding the word Bluetooth here. This means that you can later set Bluetooth easily on and off by tapping on the relevant switch light at the top of the Settings menu.


Problem solving

Some intelligent devices (having a display and buttons) may also be able to intiate the pairing. This may help in cases where pairing started from the phone does not succeed. Remember to set the 'Visibility' of your phone on in this case before trying to pair.

Should the pairing repeatedly fail, restart both Jolla and the other device. Try again.
