Another feature that you will find after upgrading is the option to increase the time of your Bluetooth visibility. If by default, Bluetooth visibility time is only within 2 minutes, then now with this option you can increase it up to 1 hour, even you can set it to always visible.

How to change Bluetooth visibility time?
To adjust this option, kindly follow the steps listed below:
  1. Go to Apps through Home screen.
  2. Scroll to Settings, then tap on it.
  3. Slide the switch next to Bluetooth option to the right to turn it on.
  4. Tap Bluetooth.
  5. Tap the Menu key.
  6. On pop up menu select Visible time-out.
  7. Now you will see four options available. They are:
    • 2 minutes
    • 5 minutes
    • 1 hour
    • Never time out.
  8. Tap the required visible time-out option. When the dot indicator next to the option shows green means the option is selected.
  9. Tap Home button to return to the standby mode.

By knowing how to adjust the visible time out, now you can set your Bluetooth to visible longer or even set it not to time out. So, have you ever tried this option once you've upgrading your phone to the Android Jelly Bean?
