    When I got into my car yesterday I noticed my bluetooth wouldn't turn on. I thought maybe it was the CurveFish bluetooth widget so i uninstalled and reinstalled, but it still won't turn on.

    It doesn't help to go into the phone's settings and turn it on from there either... I tap "Turn on bluetooth" and it hangs for a few seconds like it's activating but then goes back to the off state.

    Does anyone know a solution to this other than a factory reset. (of course i tried restarting the phone and taking out the battery already.) Is this common? :thinking:

    Thanks!

    Wow. Ok I did a Factory Reset on my phone and the Bluetooth still won't turn on. D:<

    Does this mean it's definitely a hardware problem and I need to send it back to Tmo? Ugh.

    Are you rooted or is this problem on a custom factory phone?

    This is on a factory clean phone. Not rooted.
