    Bluetooth won't start

    I don't use BT all that often, but I tried to turn it on today and it gave a "turning on Bluetooth" message for about 15 seconds, then simply returned to "turn on Bluetooth". I rebooted, then did a battery pull (while phone was off), enabled Airplane mode and then disabled it...all without positive results. Anyone know of any tricks to get BT to work properly? Or am I doomed to either do without or return to Moto?

    I really don't know but did you check for any background apps that might be messing with it?

    I haven't had this issue either. I use BT five days a week and haven't had an issue with it not turning on yet. I can't think of anything that would reset it better than what you've already done, beside a full flash.

    Could this be the excuse you've been waiting for to flash back and root??

    If you've never used it before, it might be a defective BT radio that you've never had the opportunity to notice.

    I know that it did work at one time. I was able to use the Moto BT Keyboard accessory with it then.

    I'm not yet ready to try a full flash...not until I'm convinced it's not a hardware problem. Right now, I kinda think it is.

    I'm seeing this issue now. I am pretty sure it's an app interference, but I can't find it, yet. Might be hardware, but it has been working well.

    Soon after this started with WERA's phone other issues started as well and he had his swapped out. Hopefully it's not as serious with yours...

    I'm thinking the backdoor Bank of America certifications I installed may be the gremlin....but, not sure. I've unistalled them, but haven't been able to get bluetooth to reset yet. Others have had similar spooky things happening that they feel is a result of the backdoor certs.

    My BT stopped working as well. I thought it was a conflict with one of my widget apps. So I uninstalled all of them, and reboot. Still not working.

    I had also installed the new certs application. So I reverted it and uninstalled and reboot. BT still will not turn on no matter where or what I try to use to enable it.

    I also had Android Booster application, which I also removed and reboot. Still nothing.

    I'm at a loss. I never used it all that much, but still....

    Also, my Atrix is stock and has never been rooted.
