Re: Bluetooth Problem

Re: Bluetooth Problem

@Stegadon

 

whatsapp, line, bbm are not Sony apps. For what you described is that those apps have not been customized to work on the C5, a way to test this, try to make a voice call or video call on hangouts if it doesn't work then 

 

boot on > > > safe mode try to make a voice/video call with hangouts, if it works then it could be that either a third party app its causing this

Re: Bluetooth Problem

So here is the deal, Bluetooth works with two protocols: media (A2DP) and telephony (handsfree and headset).

Try this, connect your Bluetooth device, go in settings, Bluetooth and verify settings: You should enable both telephony and media.

Check if it works.

Re: Bluetooth Problem

Did that way before, if the phone is incopitable than its fine by me. I can sell the phone and get a new one, but I will be sick if I am the only one has the problem, especialy in Indonesia service center is bad, service can g up to months, why I ask in this forum because I want to know is it only my phone has problem. And of course I like the phone but it seems has problem everytime than I am afraid to buy the same brand.

Re: Bluetooth Problem

Hello,

 

So I just connected my stereo-non-sony bluetooth headset to the C5 ultra and tried a Whatsapp call with it and it worked.

 

Long story short, it could be a Lollipop 5.0/5.1 (not 5.1.1) issue/limit with setting and this make all the bluetooth devices NOT REALLY compatible with all protocols. You said it that you tried it with a Z3 and it worked, was it with Lollipop 5.1.1? I bet yes. 

 

... or it could be that your headset is not fully compatible with the profiles available in the C5. You should try other bluetooth headsets to see if it works or not but I am almost sure that an update to Lollipop 5.1.1 (it's not going to happen) and to Android 6.0 will fix the incompatibility issue.
