Bug in OS6 for Bluetooth connection

My BB 9700  cnnected fine with my handsfree carkit when I used OS5. After going to OS6 the connection with my carkit always gave troubles. I've experienced that after a reload of the OS (battery out and in again) the conection works fine one time. After disconnection it will not work again, only after reload of OS (battery out and in) it works again for one time. This must be a bug in OS6. How can I solve this porblem?

Re: Bug in OS6 for Bluetooth connection

You're not alone. I upgraded my 9700 to OS6 two weeks ago. Since then the bluetooth connection to my handsfree car kit will not connect reliably. If I keep manually attempting to connect, eventually it may decide to play ball. Previously with OS5 I never had a problem. Does anyone know a solution?

Re: Bug in OS6 for Bluetooth connection

Do you know if RIM has a saying in all this? My BB (9300) is behaving weirdly after upgrading to OS6.0 bundle 2949 with all bluetooth related devices: Ford SYNC, Sony SRS-BT100... Failed connections, unreliable sound streaming in Sony's and Ford's as if Bluetooth signal was in the edge of disconnect: 2 meters away from speakers and inside car for sync! Unacceptable! Is it really going back to OS 5 the only solution?

Re: Bug in OS6 for Bluetooth connection

This is driving me mad! Sometimes it won't connect at all.

Did anyone find a fix for this?
