Default Bluetooth hoses up after a few hours...

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB 7250 running the most recent Handheld Software, and I've had nothing but problems with Bluetooth. It works fine, but it seems to lose its connection when sitting idle for a while. Worse, the BB still thinks Bluetooth is working and will not let you disable it. If you disable it from the ribbon menu, it still says Enabled from Options / Bluetooth. The only way I can disable it is to reboot the device.

Anyone else have problems with Bluetooth on these 4.0 devices? I hear the 4.1 devices are much more reliable.

My Verizon 7250 works very well with the Jabra BT500 headset. I've had it on for 4-6 hours at a time, while driving, and it never loses the connection. Is it possible that you are blocking the signal with your body - bb on left side, bt on right ear - or possibly walking too far away from the unit? Also, do you have it paired as handsfree or headset? This could make a difference. Have you tried it with other BT headsets?

I've owned 2 different headsets. I forget how I'm pairing it (handsfree or headset), but I'll check. It happens with both.

Also, even if I do get too far away, it should just simply disconnect, then when I get in range it should reconnect (if it's set to trusted). And Bluetooth doesn't need line-of-sight, so it shouldn't matter what side I wear the headset on and where the BB is... Right?

Yes, I'm very much hoping the 4.1 OS will help. Unfortunately, Verizon has not released it yet...
