Activate Bluetooth on Your Droid Bionic

One type of computer network for the Droid Bionic that you can use is Bluetooth. Bluetooth is simply a wireless protocol for communication between two or more Bluetooth-equipped devices.

For your Droid Bionic, the primary Bluetooth peripheral you’ll consider using is one of those ear-clingy earphones. You must turn on the phone’s Bluetooth networking before you can use the headset, though. Here’s how to turn on Bluetooth for the Droid Bionic:

  1. At the Home screen, press the Menu soft button.

  2. Choose Settings and then choose Wireless & Networks.

  3. Choose Bluetooth.

    Or, if a little green check mark already appears by the Bluetooth option, Bluetooth is already on.

You can also turn on Bluetooth by using the Power Control widget, as seen in this figure.


Just touch the Bluetooth button to turn it on.

To turn off Bluetooth, repeat Steps 1 – 3, removing the check mark by the Bluetooth option.

  • When Bluetooth is on, the Bluetooth status icon appears, as shown here.


  • Activating Bluetooth on the Droid Bionic can quickly drain its battery. Be mindful to use Bluetooth only when necessary, and remember to turn it off when you’re done.
