Default Zen & Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Just got my 8700c (on AT&T) and installed Zen (thanks Seattle18 and jibi for the simplified version). Works great! The one thing I would like to be able to do is enable/disable Bluetooth easily. On my 7290 there was an 'application' that enabled and disabled (switched on and off) Bluetooth from the home screen. on the 8700 with zen I have to navigate through BBStart, Options, Bluetooth, Click, Enable/Disable which is a bit of a pain.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Yes-Assign this to a convience key as I did.

Tried that. Maybe it's the zen theme but the option to select anything 'Bluetooth' does not exist when setting the convience key options... unless I am missing something which is quite possible since I've only had the 8700 for ~5hrs

In the options for the convenience key don't look for Bluetooth, look for Turns Bluetooth On...

I must be doing something wrong. The only options I have are:
- Nothing
- Default (App list)
- Alarm
- BB App List
- BB Messenger
- BrickBreaker
- Browse
- Calculator
- Calendar
- Call Log
- Ent Activation
- Help
- Individual email act
- Internet Browser
- Keyboard Lock
- Memo Pad
- Messages
- Options
- Password Keeper
- Pics
- Profiles
- SMS and MMS
- Search
- Tasks
- mMode

and that's all. I'd really prefer to have the bluetooth app as an icon in the app list but a convience key would be my second choice.

Cheers

If you have a paired device then enable bluetooth once through Options > Bluetooth, it places a copy of the Bluetooth icon in the menu.
