Curve (8330) Spontaneously disables bluetooth

My 8330, on about the 3rd day I had it, disabled bluetooth all on it's own. I turned it back on, and next time I looked, it was back off. After turning it back on several times, there came a point at which using the menu to enable bluetooth did not work... it would not enable.


I talked to my salesman and he suggested removing and replacing the battery, which works, for a day or so at a time.


A big pain is that when bluetooth disables itself, I have no way to know I am missing calls until I stop what I am doing and look at the phone. 


I noticed a similar thread in the 8100 forum.


It sounds like a revised firmware could fix this?

Re: Curve (8330) Spontaneously disables Bluetooth

Hi and welcome to the forum,

In cases like this we recommend taking the device back and getting a new phone.

Logically why pay for a device that has to be fixed within three days?

This may be a symptom of a serious flaw that continue to get worse.

Your thoughts Please?

Yes it just is a software glitch.


Please upgrade to the latest 4.5.


No need to take it back when all the repair centre is going to do is remove and re-install the OS.


If this still doesn't fix ur issue, then take it back

I am currently running v4.3.0.127


Where can I get the latest firmware and how do you flash the phone?


A quick spin around this website and all I can find available to download is ver 4.2 for the 8320 which is not what I want...
