There should be an antenna icon on your device. That will turn on/off the wireless. To turn bluetooth on/off normally there is a bluetooth on/off icon on the main screen. If there isn't you can go to options >bluetooth and turn it off there.

haha, thanks... I mean code wise. I thought that would have been implied being this is the developer forum.
Sorry to miscommunicate ... and confuse.

Sorry. Carry on!

For the wireless. Not sure about bluetooth.

Thank you for those code snips. I googled and found a huge database of all the api calls.
I didn't see any bluetooth calls, so maybe it's not possible.



Thanks!
