Default Bluetooth causes reboot

Please Login to Remove!

I have an issue with my blackberry. When I run the bluetooth and the Wifi it causes the BB to reboot periodically. Just the Wifi doesn't do it- it's only until I engage the bluetooth.

I haven't tried JUST the bluetooth because I need the WiFi as my signal is real low where I live. So any real solution would have to enable me to keep the WIFI on at all times...

I did a little research and found that there is a potential power issue involving the WiFi and or the Bluetooth. However it still happens even if the unit is plugged in.

There are certain OS's that will do this on the 8320. Have you tried updating your OS to the latest 4.5 release? Bluetooth and WiFi use the same frequency, so you might also have luck using a different channel on your wireless router.

What OS are you using? Go to Options > About to find out if you're not sure.

I am currently using the v. 4.2 which is the latest on the T-mobile website? Can I get the 4.5 somewhere else? is that advisable?
I'll change the chan on my router? what should I change it to? any suggestions? 7 or 11 are the go to trouble shooting chans if I remember correctly.

Folks using the 4.5 software have reported fewer (or no) issues using Bluetooth with wireless. Check the sticky thread at the top of this forum.

It may and worth a shot if you're leary of upgrading the OS. The default on most wireless routers is channel 6 so try 1 or 11.
