View Full Version : Bluetooth drops connection on verizon 8830

I've done some searches (here and google), and could find anything that could confirm...

I'm running os, and I can't maintain a BT connection with my freedom GPS puck. Whereas prior to the os upgrade I could, albeit not without a fight. I can't hold a connection with my macbook as well, although I never tried with prior to the upgrade. I haven't had the chance to test my ear piece.

What happens is that it will connect for a few seconds and then drop.

Has anyone had this problem? I've seen posts on other boards that suggest there is a bug with BT on the 8830, but I couldn't confirm this.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

So apparently I didn't search hard enough, as I found a thread that was discussing my issue... http://www.blackberryforums.com/bluetooth-connection/95640-bluetooth-problems-os-after-4-2-0-a-4.html

However that thread is about 7 months old, and lots of people have seeming upgraded to some iteration of 4.5. Has upgrading to 4.5 helped folks. Did I place my post in the wrong forum?

Oh well, I think its time for me to start the process of what my next phone will be and if I want to change carriers...
