When trying to pair an iPhone 5 with Kindle HEX I get an error on the Kindle that the bluetooth device is not compatible.

The Bluetooth on the HDX supports A2DP to connect with speakers, headsets and keyboards. It doesn't surprise me it can't pair with an iPhone. If you try pairing to the HDX from your iPhone, does the iPhone display a message?

I don't have an iAnything; what would you pair the Fire and the phone to do?

I'm guessing maybe for file transfer? Nothing else I can figure.

Are you trying to tether a WiFi-only Fire to access the internet via your phone? If so, that's not done through Bluetooth, you need to enable your phone's hotspot and then connect to the WiFi network that it creates.

Thank you so much. I have asked several people how to get an internet connection using the hotspot from my 5s to the kindle fire hdx. You are the only one to provide clear direction. And after following your directions, I feel like a genius.
