yeah man, i found it too. But I want to discover what is my bluetooth version to check if it is capable to connect in large distances. – Jean Paulo Apr 12 '13 at 21:24
differ in distance is due to bluetooth class not version (A, B and C) take a look here to read more about bluetooth: – Mr.Me Apr 12 '13 at 21:33

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

Go to Settings>More...>Application Manager>All Click on Bluetooth Share version will appear below the heading "Bluetooth Share"
