Default Bluetooth as convience key

Please Login to Remove!

I need a lot of Xanax figuring this thing out. Is there a way of setting the enabling bluetooth for our convience key? All i can get is to set up the bluetooth. Thanks and my proctologist called and they found my head!!!!

Have you told the BB to trust and connect all the time with the bluetooth device???

When it notices the device as active the BB should auto pair.....

It does but when I go to set it up as my convience key it doesn't show bluetooth in the menu, only set up bluetooth.

Oh ok..... I see now... Sorry....

I think the BT is just to set up new devices.... Once it's set and trusted the BB auto connects (or should) and that might be why it does this.....

I will delete it and repair it and see what I can do. I will be mad if I can't set it that way because i dont want the bluetooth always on.

Set the convenience key to "Manage Connections." That should give you what you want.

Does this allow you to manage the BT for on/off which is what I think the OP wanted.....

Actually when you do that it turns off your wireless, so no, it doesn't work that way.

I thought that was going to be the case but did not want to upset bollar....

I don't have or use BT..... So I have no way to confirm... I was hoping he/she was right and the issue had been fixed via OS update....

Thanks again!

Simply scroll down to Bluetooth and untick the box. Leave Mobile Network ticked. As soon as you untick Bluetooth, BT will turn off.

You're too sensitive.

The "mobile connections" icon gives you direct access to turn on/off all of the wireless connections. Although it's not exactly what the OP would like, it is a two-click solution to turning on/off the BT or GSM radio.
