One more time. My problem is not in getting the phone to marry up to a bluetooth source, but that I can't get the phone side to ENABLE bluetooth. It shows Bluetooth DISABLED. Been to ALL the settings and options on the phne to turn it on. No luck. jim

no error message. it just won't enable. i bought a piece of junk, i guess. but never again. there are numerous comments about this phone and bluetooth when you search the phone. all of them say the phone needs to be replace, and a comment as to taking out the battery when the phone is on. thanks for your help, time and concern. jim

Sorry I am late to the discussion. I had the same "bluetooth won't enable" problem after only 5 months ownership of an 8220 Pearl Blackberry. I also tried all the usual solutions with no success.
Try this unconventional solution .. ... put telephone in the freezer section of your refrigerator for an hour or so. The bluetooth worked right away and ("crossing-my-fingers") continues to work. (a few days now).
Seems to be a connection or some electronic component that is marginal and needs to be shocked by cold. RIM is located in Canada so maybe the designers figured phone would always be used in below zero temperature.
