    To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up.
    Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We first need to make sure that we have paired a device to our HTC One M8, to allow us to transfer files between the phone and a device. Let's swipe the notification panel down.

    We need to tap on "Bluetooth" in the "WIRELESS & NETWORKS" section.
    We need to make sure the Bluetooth is turned on. If it's not turned on, we will not be able to transfer files or connect to other devices. If it's on, the Bluetooth icon will be green, and the switch on the right-hand side of the screen will say "ON".
