Updated bridge to x.93 and latest Playbook OS. Seems better but jury is still out on bridge. Still definitely not happy with wifi. The OS upgrade did nothing to improve the dropping. I have determined that the dropping does come with weaker wifi signals. Having said that, my Bold 9000 does a better job of picking up and holding weaker signals than my Playbook. I read an earlier post -- can't find it now -- that referenced replacing the playbook because of defective radio which had these symptoms. I still have that nagging feeling I have a lemon.

Had the same problems, did quite a lot of that stuff mentioned above.
The only thing that really helped is removing the battery of my 9700.
Yes, i deletetd all pairings and stuff. no, did not work.
Yes, I removed the battery AND rebooted the playbook,
and yes, it worked again.
I wonder how long the bridge connection will last now...

I just bought a Playbook, and am having exactly the issues described here. Bold 9700 keeps dropping the bridge after a day or two and won't reconnect. Have successfully rebooted/ reinstalled a number of times but that's hardly a solution.
Has anyone found a solution yet?

Can you please share your software versions:
Bridge, Bold OS and PB OS Please.
Have you already tried to delete the bluetooth profiles on the bold and on the PlayBook and connecting again. And always disconnet by going to options, Bridge and select disconnect, instead of just walking away or turning off bluetooth.
Hope that helps!

I am having the exact same issue.
Torch 9800 to Playbook.
All software is up to date.
I went to the BB Knowledge Base website and it looks like it is a known problem with no resolution other than to reset the devices. I have posted the link below.

OK, well I have the curve 8530 and I recently transfered some files from my computer to a friend's via my playbook........when I got home and deleted the files from my playbook by connecting it to my laptop, ever since I cannot get my playbook to reconnect to my curve 8530 I have tried every suggestion on here, the only thing I haven't done is to do a full factory reset.......and I really would rather not have to do that. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the bridge on both, I have done reboots on both........and nothing. Any suggestions would be appreciated and I would rather not have to call customer service about this.
I also think they really need to do something about this problem everyone seems to keep having. This is ridiculous!
