Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

So, I totally love the PlayBook and think the Bridge concept is awesome! 

 

I've been having a consistent problem where the Bridge connects and works fine.  Then when I wake up in the morning there is no Bridge connection and fails to reconnect.  I've found if I uninstall Bridge and reinstall there is no issue with connecting then, but I grow tired of this routine.  Smiley Happy  Any ideas?  I have a Curve 8520 on v5.0.0.900 and the PlayBook is on 1.0.3.1868 and I appreciate any advice.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

Do you have more than one Bluetooth device paired with your BlackBerry?

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

in the BT properties on your smart phone you have to enable connect automatically.

 

there is a check box for this when you pair it.

Thanks guys!

RandomHero: no, the Curve 8520 is the only paired device.

Knottyrope: I did look and that setting is checked.

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

mine is doing the same thing now. I disconnected for the first time on its own today and now won't automatically reconnect. It's annoying!!

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

Exactly the same problem with same workaround with same fatigue with the routine. :-(

Possible bluetooth & wifi radio problem?

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

I have issues with my style not wanting to reconnect. I usually end up rebooting the pb to fix the problem. Once it still wouldn't in bridge mode and I also had to reboot my style.

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

Try deleting the PlayBook from the paired devices on your BlackBerry, and do the same on the PlayBook. Then reboot your BlackBerry, then pair again and then test.

 

I am wondering if removing all paired devices, then re-establishing a Bluetooth connection will help correct this issue.

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

Have tried numerous times. Either a bug in s/w or a h/w failure. Time for a call to support.

Re: Bridge Connection Drops & Wont Reconnect

In all honesty I would reccommend calling the customer support department for further assistance with this issue.
