I have an Android 6.0 device and an Android 4.1 device.

I used Bluetooth to pair them (only a numeric code was shown, no input needed) and it worked, I can send files via Bluetooth.

However, when I click the paired device on either phone, I can't see any profile.

This is what I see:

As Internet Access is a crucial profile for tethering, it must be present.

Can you tell me why they are missing?

  • Have you enabled the "Bluetooth-Tethering" setting on either of the phones (the one which should share the connection)?

  • @Robert Yes, it says Sharing Internet connection…

It seems that my old Sony Xperia J phone does not have this feature: either by hardware limitations or by carrier modifications.
