BB Bridge issue - requires repeated setup with BB Bold

In order to connect to Blackberry Bridge, I have to uninstall and reinstall the application to my BB Bold smartphone every time I turn my Playbook on. This is the only way I have found to temporarily solve the problem. The connect function does not work, even though both devices indicate the other is recognized. Bluetooth is always active on both devices. I've had my Playbook since the release date and this issue is getting to be quite annoying. Help!

You restarted your phone too, right? That fixed my connection loss issue (curve 8900)
