Am I missing something or does the Samsung S Pen that comes with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE don't do the Air Actions and isn't Bluetooth compatible? Why does the tablet say I have to connect my S Pen but when i follow directions there is no blue light blinking on the S Pen when i hold the button down for 3 seconds???

It doesn't have Bluetooth. That's likely the message if you don't lose it.

this does not answer the question. What does losing it have to do with the OP question ? Do I need to buy a different Pen to do the air actions? Why is that Not mentioned in the original documentation when Samsung is trying to Sell it to you? Is there a way to use the Pen that Comes with my tablet to do the air action?

Sorry, but no.  In the manual it only describes Air Commands which are the normal non-Bluetooth commands.  It even describes the magnetic storage area on the back of the tablet as a pen holder and not a charger. 

If you don't find Air Actions in your settings then the firmware won't work with a Bluetooth S-Pen.

I have Air Actions in my settings on my S7FE, so that's not right either.

Then a BT stylus should work but the question is whether or not the  Pen Holder is actually a pen charger.

Again, you're missing the point.  Why is it a question on a tablet that is over a year old?


What stylus comes with the S7FE?

What are it's capabilities?

Does it charge?

This should not be a guessing game.  The tablet came out over a year ago.  Why doesn't Samsung have definitive answers?  

Also, if your answer is "I'm a volunteer on the forum, and I don't own an S7FE, that's not an answer.  SAMSUNG support doesn't even know the answer.  That's a PROBLEM.

I don't think I'm missing the point.  All of those questions can be answered by doing some product research before purchase. 

Someone asked if they needed to buy a BT S-Pen and I was trying to do some research to see if that would work.

And, Oh by the way, research revealed that the the 5G version comes with a BT S-Pen.

Me, too. It's actually just a glorified stylus

Just bought this tablet.  When I saw it wasn't paired, I contacted Samsung Support via phone, and they had no clue.  Took me through 30 minutes of problem solving, calling me "Mr. Richard" the whole time, and finally gave up and told me to call Sales to get a new tablet.  Then I chatted with Support, and he proclaimed he was an expert and a Samsung customer, and kept cutting and pasting Samsung PHONE answers.  It's amazing that after being out for over a year, the documentation is so poor and the support is worse.
