  1. My note 8 isn’t working with my Oakley Radar Pace glasses. The phone bluetooth connects but the media toggle won’t bluetooth connect. My note 5 worked great. I tried the fixes people have been reporting for vehicles who have the same problem with the media toggle, but nothing is working. Super irritated.

  2. I’ve been having problem for about a month. Galaxy Note 8 used to stay connected to my car (reconnect after the car started.) Now the car always says that there is no phone connected. I can connect it manually, but Bluetooth turns off (on phone) approx 7-8 minutes later. I turn it back on, get the music playing again, and 7-8 minutes later the Bluetooth is off on the phone again. Was working fine with this vehichle for 4-5 months before this problem occurred.

  3. I got the Note 8 preordered and I was very happy and excited I got it and and now im so upset at samsung and my Note 8 and that it let me down, im having Bluetooth issues and I did every step to fix, I even reset my phone to factory default setting and wiped out everything and it still continued, my phone connects to any device but it auto disconnects itself from device connected within seconds, my provider is tmobile and I called samsung directly and told them of my issues with the Bluetooth and they stated they did not have any reports of Note 8 Bluetooth malfunctioning, and I stated that there are several blogs online of people complaining of this situation, and the only resolution samsung gave me was to send my phone to them to get it fixed and I said no because I could do that with my phone provider, and I’m very upset cause being a very expensive phone, I never thought it would let me down, but I don’t like iPhone but I know it won’t let me down like this, I understand if I broke or had water damage I would understand. Samsung checked my imi number to verify I didn’t have any damages, which I didn’t. So maybe Samsung needs an update patch or something.

  4. Hi, my galaxy note 8 does not have an “application manager” in the settings and nowhere can I find clear cache for bluetooth. For some reason, I can’t connect to my car now. It was connecting a few days ago and now it won’t even discover my car. It still connects to my speakers in the house. I have tried everything in the settings over and over, restarted the phone……nothing works. Can you help? I am starting to wish i hadn’t spent all that money on a new phone. My old windows Nokia Lumia 1520 phone still connects to the car. Thinking of putting my sim card back in that and not using my new phone. Changed over because the apps are crap for windows phones and the new apps are never made for windows, but if that’s the only thing that is better, then maybe I should have not wasted my money.

  5. Thank you ever so much for step 2 instructions! Before I followed your instructions, my Note 8 was not found by any bluetooth device. Now it works with the two I have tried and I am really happy that it works with my car.

    I have spent so many hours trying to fix this, but thanks to your tip, my problem is solved.

    Kind regards,


  6. Have done it exactly as above – still not working.
    This Bluetooth issue (Galaxy NOTE 8) has nothing to do with Cache/Data and will NOT work without a update/patch from SUMSUNG directly.
    My NOTE 8 is not even finding my SAMSUNG Smart TV or the SAMSUNG Soundbar
