I could use some help with my Bluetooth.
I paired a device and it says it's paired but it's not connected. And the button to connect it is greyed out and not pushable.
What would cause that? And can it be fixed?

Android apps do not have access to the bluetooth stack for bidirectional communication. If you are trying to use the app I'm honking of, you're out of luck.
Also, the API's for bluetooth have not been released to native devs yet either AFAIK.BB Bold 9700 on T-Mobile bridged to 64GB Playbook (The pair handles 98% of my computing needs!)

Yeah I hate to break it to you but that's not going to work...
Unsupported Hardware Features
The following hardware features are not currently supported. Apps that use these features are typically incompatible. If your app uses any of these features but you feel that it should still be functional on a BlackBerry PlayBook, you should make sure to fully test the app to ensure their use does not impact the usability or core functionality of your app before submitting it to App World.
Telephony (including SMS and MMS)
Camera - The intent to launch the camera is supported. However, currently the Camera class in the Android SDK is not supported. As a result, although you can launch the camera application, you cannot access the Camera hardware.
Ambient light sensor
Any of the following key configuration requirements:
Five-way navigation keys
D-pad, trackball, or wheel navigation
