    Unable to change time of bluetooth discoverability

    Trying to download movie to phone. Doubletwist can't find device with airsync, thought try bluetooth. Discoverable time out stops the transfer. Went to settings and changed time out period to "never". Well, now it won't discover at all! And I can't access time out menu to change it back! Please help me restore timeout setting. And please leave out "usb cable can download movie file" advice. Of course I've already done that! My problem is making device discoverable again!

    Hi there,

    In android device you cannot change the DISCOVERABILITY of the BLUETOOTH device.
    Its a fixed setting which cannot be altered.

    Its a fixed time of 120 seconds when you can keep your device discoverable.

    regards!!

    hey..
    i dont think that you can manually assign the discoverable time for Bluetooth..
    its a fix 2 minutes.. that is 120 seconds..

    120 seconds is the fixed time for Discoverability for Bluetooth in Android devices..
    you cant change that..
    if you are having problems in making it discoverable again..
    you should try 3rd party apps to do so..
    go to play.google.com.. look for 'Bluetooth File transfer'..

    You can download movies with the help of USB cable.You need to connect your phone & PC with USB cable.first you have to download movie in your computer & then on phone.Or you can directly download it in your phone.Mostly in android phones there is visibility for bluetooth.You can receive files without making your device visible but if you want to send then have to discover the device.In some phones for both visibility is needed.If you are not able to make it discover again then better to go service centre & there tell your problem.They will solve it.

    You just reset your device. Then, your issue may be solved. For reset, go through the following steps.
    1. Turn your phone on and go to menu.
    2. Then, select "settings" and click on it.
    3. Now, go for the option named "privacy".
    4. In that, you will have an option called "Factory reset" and click on it.
    Enter the usual code 1234 and reset your device. That may solves the problem. Thank you:-)
