    I just replaced my Motorola H681 for the Jawbone II. The Jawbone seems to have disabled the Bold's Bluetooth LED Connection Indicator --no more flashing blue light on the Bold while the Jawbone is connected-- despite being set to "On" on Bluetooth Options. Have you had the same experience?

    Can't say as though I have..but then again I never actually use the LED for Bluetooth either. But I tested and it works fine for me.

    I don't understand how a remote device could disable the phone's BT connection indicator, unless it fails to achieve the required level of connectivity.

    Thank you for your reply. I tried another Bluetooth headset and the LED Indicator Light does not work either! It seems that the Bold's Bluetooth LED Indicator Light failed.

    It seems that it is a hardware failure.

    Suddenly, the Bluetooth LED Connection Indicator started flashing again. I have been confronting little issues like this one with my Bold. I have not had this experience with my previous two BlackBerries...

    Check you didn't disable it in BT options.

    You can also test the LED from the self test routines. Options/Status then type "test" and follow the screen prompts. LED is under Misc

    Thanks for the self-test tip.

    The LED Connection Indicator was set to ON when the blue light suddenly stopped flashing. I tried two things: (1) setting it to OFF and saving and setting it to ON and saving again; and (2) performing a hard reset. When I had given-up and thought that it was a hardware failure, it started flashing again on its own.
