How to pair your Fairphone 1 to another device
- Go to System Settings > Bluetooth. Make sure your Fairphone 1 is set to ‘Visible to all nearby Bluetooth devices’
- Go to Settings > Bluetooth > Search for Devices. Wait for the other device to appear on the list in your Fairphone 1 and select it. (it’s called ‘Android AP’ by default, but you can change the name if you’d like something more personal.)
- Wait for the devices to pair. You will get a confirmation code on the screen of your Fairphone and on you other device. If you see the same code on both, you can confidently accept the pairing
- Once that’s complete, your devices are successfully paired and you can find each other whenever Bluetooth is activated.
