I am guessing both of these aren't rooted... completely stock right? Have you tried factory resetting them?

is it root? did you install a ROM on it? If its running Ldrifta's Number Two (#2) he has a fix for it. If its rooted just download the zip put it on your sd card and go into recovery and flash it.

Well if you rooted it u can do the zip to repair it or you can copy and paste the bluetooth apps from the rom or from a factory zvd file . And paste them in the systems file and when it ask u if you want to override the apps that are present just click yes to all and power off device and power back on and u should have blue tooth ......you can do this for both phones the one rooted and the nonrooted one

do you know what rom it has on it? if you go to settings and then about phone and scroll down to build number it will tell you what its running.

what part of Michigan are you from? I'm from south east.

how's that wifi not working for you John? You scoffed at my idea....i understand your concern but consider that ive posted enough content here to be a member that probably means i know wtf I'm doing. the sealed bag is too protect againt moisture and 10 min is plenty cool off time. You can try my idea if you want that wifi working
