BlackBerry Bridge is fine with my Torch except if i leave PB at home and, whilst away, connect my Torch to another Bluetooth device, eg handsfree in car, and then come back to my PlayBook the Bridge will not connect and I have to setup a new connection.
This only occurs if I use another BT device whilst away from the PB.
Anyone else experiencing this?

Did you have the Bluetooth handsfree in your car saved as a Bluetooth device on your BlackBerry before you got your PlayBook? If so, try deleting the saved device and then pair your device again and test.

That did it, I removed handsfree BT device and then re-added and all is fine.
Appears that the PB needs to be at the top of the list .... where it should be of course!!

Just as I thought it was sorted the problem retunred!
I have now removed all BT devices and just added my Playbook on my Torch but still the problem persists and the PB fails to see the Torch via BT. Removing the phone ane re-adding BT and then Bridge resolves.

Do you have more than one device paired with your BlackBerry? If so, could you try deleting all paired devices from your BlackBerry and then pair with your PlayBook then the other devices.
I am interested to see, if the PlayBook is the first paired deivce will the BlackBerry Bridge work properly.

I tried that last time and removed a hands-free BT connection that just left the PB and all was fine. Once I add another BT device then this problem reoccurs.
I have tried removing all devices and then adding PB first and then the hands-free with the same result. It appears that having more than the PB device causes the problem.

Backup your device data, then go through the following clean application load process: http://bbry.lv/cKy9A0 Once the application load is complete, install the BlackBerry Bridge software and pair your devices. Once you verify that this works properly, pair your BlackBerry with another Bluetooth device and then test using the BlackBerry Bridge.
If all of this checks out, then restore your backed up data and then test.
