Did you install Kies software, because the drivers are generally get installed with that software ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No because it came with other bundled software i don t want and it hijacks my home page i dont care for hijackers. are you saying i have to have

this ?. And gaurantee a fix ?

Expert:  Sudipto replied 2 years ago.
I personally do not like Kies, as it creates more problem. But Samsung had provided the drivers with that software. You can also check the disc, which came with the phone for the drivers.

Before trying anything. Please let me know, if you see the Bluetooth icon on the taskbar of your PC, at the right bottom of the screen ?
