Yes I agree. We have worked through the sequence of steps many times with two different Samsung devices.
- Tablet SM-P610 – Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
- Phone SM-A705YN – Galaxy A70
With both devices, the outcome and steps are the same. We get to the point where I should enter a code number from the microBit in the app. The microBit show a success image and the app says “Paired”.
However the phone won’t connect after rebooting. What we are not doing is entering a code because no code is shown.
Is there a way to independently connect via bluetooth without using this app? Just as some kind of smoke test, to confirm that it is working properly.
Another thought was that something might have remained “connected” during one of the failing attempts in memory. Is there a setp to perform a “factory reset” and wipe all state? Is there a different way to get the microBit started – Say from a PC or something?
I have bluetooth on my PC but I don’t have an app to use. If someone know of an app or program to connect that would be very good non-Samsung device to test with.
Open to sugggestions, the steps to get this to work do not seem complicated.
Many thanks for checking-in.
