My new S9 won't autoconnect either. I have tried the suggestions earlier in the forum, but with no luck. Model: SM-G960U Baseband: G960USQS2ARF4 Service: Verizone I am trying to connect to a Mercedes Bluetooth unit AND my Kenwood car sterio. I can connect manually, but when I leave the car and come back, it will NOT auto connect and I have to connect manually (kind of defeats the safety purpose of hands free driving). I have spent 2 hours with Samsung support (deleting network settings, clearing Bluetooth cache/storage, unparing/repairing, etc.), I even downloaded the Samsung "Smart Tutor" app allowing Samsung support to access my phone, but still with no luck! My old S6 would auto connect every time. Also, my contacts on the S9 would NOT download to the Mercedes, despite saying "downloading" when manually connected? I have contacts "allowed" on my S9, but they do not download. On the Mercedes, I can't find where to delete device (and then attempt to re pair the phone). Regardless, it doesn't auto connect in the Kennwood either! I believe this is a BUG rather than a settings issue, or "glitch" as Samsung support stated. Please help.
