Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know of a way, an app maybe, to turn the bluetooth connection on/off on blackberry according to the time of day?

Thanks!

Well, I would assume you would want to turn it off to save the battery!!

I was wondering the same thing. Having just upgraded to a 9900 I can see I'm going to have to keep that in mind.

The only thing I need bluetooth for is to connect to my handsfree in the car. I wont remember to turn it on and off everytime so I leave it on. Some sort of automation would be very useful!

The battery usage when not actively in use is minimal.

Well, for me, bluetooth is an enormous drain on my battery when it is not connected. Turning bluetooth off when I'm not using it is the only way I can get through one day without a charge.

Ideally, an app would work something like SmartWifi.
