If you upgraded tp IOS 10.2.1, that is probably the source of your Bluetooth problem. That is a widespread problem which Apple has not yet addressed. Good luck.

Some hit on your phone recently ? Sounds like a fault of the wifi & BT IC, or on the joints soldering it to the logic board. Quite a common issue on 5Cs as Russ pointed out, but it's most probably a hardware failure.

With a little luck and skills it might get fixed by a reflow of the chip.

How do I do a hip reflow ? Gordon

Easier said than done, as usual. Best advice I can give is to find a phone repair shop where the basic tools should be ready available and they can give a try the proper way. Some reported having had some success with home tools such as a oven or a heat gun, but the risk of trashing the entire board is pretty high. Since you don't have much to loose, you might want to give it a try anyway. If you are brave enough you can google a bit to find the way that suits best the tools you got at home.

To remove the board you can use this guide: iPhone 5c Logic Board Replacement
