  1. still unable to pair the bluetoothe headset to the phone. every time it apparently finds the device, the pop up says "settings has stopped".

    1. Hi Buddy,
      Thanks for coming.
      First, try pairing that Bluetooth headset with other device, if any, just to make sure that it has no problem.

      Next, try restarting your phone. If it didn't help, try performing reset app preferences from the app manager menu and then restart your phone. Once done, try pairing your phone with your headset again.
