So today i installed the newest update on my s21 ultra.  When i try to activate bluetooth it bounces back and forth, on - off - on - off for a long time til it pops up "bluetooth stopped working" then i have to close the app.   Anyone experiencing the same problem? A bug within the newest update? 
And yes i tried to switch off etc etc etc....

Help would be appreciated!

Try rebooting into recovery mode, clear the cache, and run the repair apps option, and your phone should restart. Test out. LMK if this helps! GL!

Just tried it and it didnt work. The first thing that happends when i turn it on again i get this -bluetooth keeps on stopping-     Then the only choice is to close the app again... and the same procedure all over again 😞

Turn the phone off and then wait a few seconds then press and hold the volume up button and power button at the same time it should bring up the recovery mode use volume keys to move up and down and power button for "ok".

Same issue. Bluetooth shuts off and turns on randomly. This started after updating to Android 13.

I have the same problem.. but mine started after Android 12 upgrade.. I can't even enable my Bluetooth.. then after a week it pops up for 30 mins or so then goes dormant again. Samsung has messed something up with the Bluetooth stack and they won't do anything to fix it.

I finally solved my issue. I have a card tracker linked to the app "Chipolo". My tracker eventually malfunctioned, therefore I disposed of it but kept the app installed on my S21. The app kept using Bluetooth in the background and I assume that was causing the random on/off issues that I was having, because they haven't occurred since I uninstalled the app.

Oh that's great. Ya mine is the actual phone.. I've factory reset it many times.. I've also tried other firmwares.. all the same. So it's been like 6 months with no Bluetooth.. so annoying
