    Bluetooth possibly stopped working - Soul 2013

    Hi.
    I've had my Soul for a few months, and 2 days ago when I started the radio, I got the message "Pairing failed". I've had my phone paired and working well with it ever since we got the car.
    When I put the car in Pair mode and search for it on my phone, I do not see the car anymore - my phone cannot detect that the car is transmitting a Bluetooth signal (yes, the car does display its Bluetooth designation and code, so the radio at least "thinks" it is working). I also deleted my phone from the car, but that didn't help, either.

    It is possible that my phone is going nuts - it's one of the less reliable Samsung Galaxy Fascinate phones - but with the OS I installed on the phone it has been fairly reliable.

    Is this a known issue?
    Is it more likely my phone than the radio?
    Is there anything I can do myself to attempt to fix this?
    Do I have to bring it into a service dealer, and would this be covered under warranty since the car is only a few months old?

    Thanks!

    Gah, turns out it was my phone after all...
    No idea what happened - I didn't do anything with the phone other than leave Bluetooth turned off for a few hours to save battery.
    But when I turned it on again, all of a sudden everything worked again.
    Sorry to cause confusion here...
