information   Information
Bluetooth lets you use all sorts of wireless devices with your phoneóBluetooth headsets, headphones, a hands‑free system in your car, speakers, fitness trackersójust to name a few. You can pair your Bluetooth device with your phone.

Currently in Windows 10 Mobile build 15031, you will be unable to pair a Bluetooth device. Bluetooth quick actions from Action Center also does not work.

Starting in Windows 10 Mobile build 15043, Microsoft has fixed the issue causing the Settings app to crash when navigating to Settings > Devices and you should be able to pair a Bluetooth device without any issue. The Bluetooth quick action from Action Center should also now work again.

If you don't use Bluetooth, then turning off Bluetooth wireless communication will help improve the battery life of your phone.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Bluetooth wireless communication on your Windows 10 Mobile phone.

While you have airplane mode turned on, you can still turn on Wi-Fi, FM radio, Bluetooth, and NFC sharing separately.
