I can say this about SP3:
When I was running SP2, I had no trouble at all getting my Pearl to work as a tethered modem via Bluetooth.
My hard drive flaked out and I re-installed Windows from scratch and installed SP3 as part of that. I could not get tethering via Bluetooth to work at all under SP3.
My hard drive flaked again after a month or so, and I re-installed from scratch again, but this time only installed SP2.
Under SP2 again, I was able to setup tethering via Bluetooth again on the first try, with no problems.
The problem seemed to somehow be related to the Device Manager or Desktop Manager, as I could pair my BB to my computer, but I could never get the BB Device Manager to show it when I tried to configure it for use as a modem with the BB Device Manager.
It worked fine when tethered via USB under both SP2 and SP3.
I don't know if this is related to your issue. But since it seems to be specifically related to SP3, I figured I'd mention it.
