Does anyone know how to turn on and connect a paired headset without having to go through Settings everytime?
i leave my bluetooth on all the time and it hasnt affected the battery. or if you want to turn if off and on, you can use the power widget, then as long as the paired bluetooth device is on it will connect(aleast mine does).
The way is to:
Hold a vacant spot on the home page (as Don mentioned)
This will add a bar with 5 buttons. One of those controls Bluetooth. Press it either turn it on or off.
