A different phone yes. But it is also a Samsung Galaxy s5. The same as mine. The HFL just keeps sayong mo phones are paired, and returns to the main menu.

O.k.,if this is occurring with more then one phone I suspect this is an issue with the HFL/bluetooth itself.I have seen some of these faulty or fail before and cause this type of fault here.In some cases a dealer may have to program or code the vehicle in order for this to operate properly if you just installed this yourself.But if this was checked into or is not the issue here I suspect an internal problem with it.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
