I have a samsung Galaxy S2 here is a method to get info on your bluetooth version

  1. Turn on bluetooth by going to the home screen, clicking menu->settings bluetooth. Pull that to enabled. Make sure it is on.

  2. On the home screen, click menu -> settings -> applications -> 'running' tab.

  3. An item appears called: "bluetooth share".

  4. A screen pops up with information about the program, but it is sparse.

Following these directions there is still nothing show on my Samsung Galaxy S3 from Straight Talk. 4.1.2 Android but no idea about Bluetooth version. – user97614 Mar 11 '15 at 1:30
"A screen pops up with information about the program, but it is sparse." And... there's no information at all about what version of Bluetooth is running. So what was the point of suggesting this method? – Fran Mar 31 at 12:11

I have tried several searches for finding the Bluetooth settings on my LGL15G with no luck finding a solution that will get the answer on my phone.

I did find the information.

I searched for LG L15G Sunrise Specifications on Google

I went to a link called

I used the top of the page search for LG L15G

It gave me one result, which I clicked on:

I clicked on Tech Specs and searched the page for Bluetooth. It took me to

Bluetooth® Version 4.0

My point is, there doesn't appear to be a way to find the Bluetooth version, at least on many devices, but if you can find a manual on line, it might be in there. If someone comes up with a way to actually find it on the device, let us know.

Menu > Settings > under device, Application Manager > swipe to All > click on Bluetooth Share > version would be displayed under app info.
