bluetooth not connecting

[ Edited ]


The bluetooth on my BB curve has stopped connecting to the blue tooth in my car automatically. if I delete the device and then add it as a new one it works fine, but if i turn the radio off and then on again it connects for a second but then losses it.


the BB connects to my other car straight away.


any help would be appreciated

Re: bluetooth not connecting


What version of software and platform are you on?

The reason I ask is that I have just (two days ago) installed v5.0.0.681 (Platform on my 8520 Curve, and now I cannot use my GPS dongle any more. It is paired OK but the BB will not "use" it

Deleteing and re-pairing has no effect, so I am also looking for help.
