Echo's Bluetooth announcement
« on: December 25, 2015, 04:17:15 am »
This problem started about a month ago; I.e., it wasn't always present.  When my paired tablet (7-inch kindle) hibernates, echo repeatedly announces, "Connected to Bluetooth" and a few minutes later beeps to announce the disconnect.  This happens 5-6 times an hour.  The only way to stop it is to turn the tablet all the way off.  Can be kind of annoying.

This question (or variations of it) has been asked here a few times, and I have replied a few times.  This is what I wrote this past week to someone who's iPhone kept connecting to Echo:

Too many BT signals on can cause issues, not just w/Echo.  You need to turn off BT signals on your phones when not using them; you can't just leave them on constantly in the house and paired with say, the Echo.. 

I just told Alexa to turn off Bluetooth.  She replied, "There aren't any devices connected.  You can un-pair your Bluetooth on your mobile device." So, try that, and un-pair your BT from phone with Echo.  You can re-pair when needed.

(The above also applies to Kindle tablets, iPads, etc.  You also can likely just disconnect the Kindle BT from Echo.)
