    Default Blackberry Playbook + Torch 9800 + Bridge Instability...

    So obviously I have the playbook.... I have the 9800 torch.... and the Torch is on a BES.

    I use Microsoft Notes (Via Outlook) all the time - the great thing about it is, is that once I create a note via my Laptop it is accesible on my phone and playbook...and vice versa...if I create a note on my phone or playbook via the bridge, the note is on my laptop - basically it's on our mailsever backed up everynight.

    However - since the beginning my bluetooth bridge connection is not stable. I'll drop the connection a lot actually. The phone will be on the desk in front of me and I'll drop the bridge connection.

    One time I was taking meeting notes using Notes and the bridge dropped and I lost everything.

    Anyone else have this instability?

    Particularly people with the Z10??

    I have a 9800 and a playbook and haven't noticed any instability though I'm not on BES. I'm also on wu Weis latest hybrid.

    After the connection drops how to you get it connected again? Do you notice the bluetooth connection turning off on the phone/Playbook display? Do you have any other bluetooth accessories connected to those devices and do they drop the connection?

    Also, any cordless phones nearby. Or other things that might share a radio frequency with bt?

    When it drops sometimes all I have to do is tap on the bridge, then the icon I want and restored-enter my password.

    Other times I've had to do a battery pull on the phone - which is always a pleasure.

    A restart of the PB will do it sometimes, but a phone reboot will always do it.

    My 9930 is on my BES and I use Bridge all the time. I have seen stability issues like you mention. I think it's a flaky phone or bad OS, might be fixed by reloading it. I don't blame the PlayBook.

    Do you have the latest bridge software from http://rroyy.com? I downloaded the version compatible with my version installed on my phone and have had no issues. Good luck.
