    How can i use my old Blackberry Bold 9000 to act as Bluetooth Keyboard and mouse for my Computer? I googled and came up with some news of BlackBerry Bridge allowing something like that, but how can i do this specifically?

    Normally able to do this on the playbook! the 9900 acts as a "remote control" you can move around the cursor like a mouse and interact with the PB in this manner...

    Have you installed the bridge app? Pretty easy from the options in the app.

    How? I run Bridge on my Bold, and says use remote control. I press there, and then it says add tablet. I do a manual pairing, and it searchs for Playbook Tablets, and doesnt add my laptop, which i want to control. I have paired the laptop to Bold manually outside of Bridge. But inside Bridge it doesnt list it.

    The BlackBerry Bridge is used to bridge your phone to a BlackBerry PlayBook not your laptop. That why it doesn't work.

    But i read on articles thatit also works, with PS3, Android and Windows. But noone seems to mention how, the articles just state it can be done with other platforms as well, besides Playbook. Any workaround?

    Sorry I missed the computer part. You'll need something like splahtop to do that.

    I believe that you can bridge an Android device with the PlayBook but it has to be tethered. Haven't seen anything about bridging to a laptop.

    What's Splashtop?

    I found a workaround here, but i dont understand why you have to use quicklaunch to achieve it...
