    No easy way to turn off bluetooth headset?

    Ideally I would like to have an icon/button right on my today screen that would let me toggle a bluetooth headset on/off without turning off bluetooth. ie: a button to replace going into bluetooth manager, right click on my bluetooth headset, go to settings and check/uncheck the "use hands free for telephone calls".

    I am not looking for a bluetooth on/off button, rather a bluetooth headset on/off button. I have searched on here, as well as on google and handango and have found zilch.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Doesn't it disconnect when you turn the BT Headset off?

    I'm not near my phone right now, but I believe "turn flight mode on" turns off BT.

    If you click on the little headset thingy there's a link/button thing that you can click to quit using the bt headset... or at least there is DURING a call.....


    That's a little quicker... but still kinda crazy when you're making the other person listen to either silence or really muffled screams from accross the room.....

    Yes yes I know about the "continue call on the handheld" message you can click on. But I am looking for a big fat button right on my today screen that my big fat finger can press once to turn off/on the headset without affecting bluetooth. That little headset icon, and even worse the text are really really small to get to with a finger.

    And why would I want to turn flight mode on just to turn bluetooth off?!?

    Well.. that would be cheating...

    And I don't think that the person suggesting flight mode understood what you were looking for....


    Big buttons aren't any fun. You can actually get to those


    I just saw that you said you had to go the BT manager and stuff.... didn't know if you knew about the other thing.

    Oh well....

    I guess I'm not offering a fix for it so I'll shut up...

    The man is looking for a way to disbale his BT headset without turning BT off. Basically he needs a special app that toggles the "Hands-free Settings" of the Bluetooth headset.

    Everything I have seen just turns BT on/off.
