The most common Bluetooth devices used together with mobile devices are headsets for making calls or listening to music or hands-free kits for cars. There are several Bluetooth profiles that define the features and communications standards for Bluetooth devices. For a list of the profiles supported by your device, refer to the guide of your Bluetooth device or accessory. The first time you use a new Bluetooth device, you must pair it with the device you wish to connect to, so that both devices know how to connect securely with each other. After that, they should always connect automatically without further configuration. To connect to a Bluetooth device: 1. Turn on the connecting device's Bluetooth radio (e.g. Bluetooth headset-refer to your Bluetooth device’s user manual). This is usually indicated by flashing blue and/or red lights. 2. Go to Settings > Bluetooth on your Starmobile device. 3. Turn on Bluetooth by toggling the On/Off slider. The Notifications bar should indicate that Bluetooth is now on. 4. Click on the device you wish to connect to. This step may require you to enter a code or passphrase. (Please refer to the Bluetooth device’s user manual). 38

To enable 3G services: 1. Go to Settings > More > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names and select your network’s access point. 2.

Data Usage Data usage refers to the amount of data uploaded or downloaded by your device during a given period. To monitor your data usage, adjust your data usage settings. First check your Internet plan and determine what data limits may apply. NOTE: Your device measures the usage displayed on the data usage settings screen. This means that your carrier's data usage accounting may differ. Depending on your plan, you may be charged additional fees when your data usage exceeds your plan's limit. Usage in excess of your carrier plan's data limits can result in steep coverage charges.
