Bluetooth Shield (V1.1 2014/05/09) help

I have the bluetooth shield model that I have stated in the subject line but when I plug the shield into my ardiono uno r3 it won't connect.(the Bluetooth connection option isn't shown in the Bluetooth settings when I try to find and connect to it) Is there something wrong with my Bluetooth, or is it just that I have to code using software serial. If I do have to code, than what pins would my rx and tx be?

It would be a major help if someone has an answer. I have been struggling to find the answer for this question for too long.
