8700c bluetooth won't enable

good afternoon all!

i have an 8700c that i have unlocked after Ebay purchase to run Tmobil as my carrier. I have used my bluetooth in the past to pair with my GPS and the like. however, after a recent DM upgrade (6.0) i noticed that i cannot enable bluetooth at all.

 

so far i have tried resetting to factory, removing DM 6.0 and going back to 5.0 to no avail. i then did a complete wipe with JL_cmder 1.9.1 and a pretty recent version of OS (4.5.0.110) installed now. and that didn't work.

 

i also removed the BES IT policy from my device and DM (5.) did the wipe and re-install of 4.5.0.110 again and that hasn't helped either.

 

so does anyone have any other options at this point for me to try? basically i can go into my bluetooth options, click enable bluetooth, it sits for a second, doesn't do anything and says that bluetooth is disabled.

 

anyone have any other tips/tricks i can try? is there a way to verify that the bluetooth chip is functioning?

 

thanks so much!!!

Re: 8700c bluetooth won't enable

according to ATT, it looks like 4.5.0.306 is the most recent version now. i am downloading that to give it a try as well.

 

the BB was originally on Cingular if that matters (before i unlocked it). gracias!
