    Turn bluetooth with one step

    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).

    If I turn my Bluetooth headset off and back on it will not connect without going through settings and Bluetooth settings.

    mine connects whenever its on, dont need to do anything in settings.

    does it unpair everytime? or do you just have to go into settings and tell it to connect.

    I set up a shortcut on my homepage for Bluetooth

    Hold a vacant spot on the home page
    Select Shortcuts
    Select Setting
    Select Bluetooth

    This will put a Shortcut icon on your home page

    The way is to:

    Hold a vacant spot on the home page (as Don mentioned)
    Select Widgets
    Select Power

    This will add a bar with 5 buttons. One of those controls Bluetooth. Press it either turn it on or off.

    That is a nice widget, but I need to get to the Bluetooth connection icon to search for my ear phone.
