Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
If the symbol looks sort of like a
K
only made out of two triangles:
http://www.pixempire.com/images/preview/bluetooth-ios-7-interface-symbol-icon.jpg
then that is the symbol for 'Bluetooth'.
I suspect that, if you cannot connect, you need to switch Bluetooth to 'On.'
But if I have guessed wrong about the identity of the symbol, or how it looks, let me know, and I will venture on a different answer.
