How do I toggle Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc?

As nice as it is to have Wi-Fi, GPS, or Bluetooth running on our devices, it’s not always necessary. Every once in a while we need to turn on off or on to preserve battery or to connect with another device.

Early and existing versions of Android allow for easy access and toggling of our connections and options through the settings.  Open the app tray (usually an icon that looks like small squares) at the bottom of your phone and scroll until you see Settings.

Typically, the first things you’ll see here are wireless and network settings and you’re but a quick tap away from turning on Wi-Fi or enabling Bluetooth. New versions of Android  (4.2) have a second dropdown menu from the notification bar which can be accessed by swiping the right hand side. A menu of quick settings appears on top of the home screen letting users hop directly to the same toggles. Select handsets also make it pretty easy to access settings in the notification bar that displays your missed calls and email alerts. Simply swipe down from the top of your screen and you may see some of the more common settings right there.

Finally, there’s a chance that you can also hit the menu button on the homescreen of your Android to reveal settings. Samsung does this for a lot of their devices, providing one less hurdle between you and turning on Bluetooth.
