How do I connect my Flip 3 or Flip 4 to Bluetooth sources?

To put it in pairing mode, hold down the Bluetooth button for atleast 3 seconds, until the light flashes blue. You are now in pairing mode. Locate the FLIP on your device and pair them together. The two devices will sync together and you will hear a tone from the FLIP indicating it is successful.
