Default Bluetooth stopped working after 2 weeks of ownership

My Bluetooth won't connect to my car anymore?
Actually it won't even turn on anymore. Not too impressed.

Yes I am asking for help. Lol

So after a couple of reboots the phone connects to the car. But when I try to send my contacts to the car it won't connect to the car. Any help would be appreciated

Can we get more help from you first?

Stock ROM? or modded? If so, which one?

Gingerbread or ICS 4.0 leak?

What kind of kernel?

When you connected your bluetooth for the first time, did you pull down the dialogue from the status bar asking to give your car permission to access your address book? If you didn't that could be the problem.

I've found that usually when I have a bluetooth connection problem, it usually helps to delete the phone from my car's memory, and then re-pair it and give it permission to access my address book...

It's in the OP's signature block, assuming it's up-to-date...

the BT in this phone (2.3.5) is terrible. a single reboot "SHOULD" work.

I ended up having to leave BT on all the time. Now, it works consistently in both my cars without fail. That said, it still sucks that I can't turn it on/off as I wish.

I've been trying to determine if ICS has this same problem, but haven't had time to flash it yet to see.

I can say with certainty that the bluetooth on ics is vastly improved over 2.3.5. I can now actually turn it off and on without having to reboot anymore.

Yes I'm on stock rom, GB.

after a few reboots it worked.
The Bluetooth on this phone is crap. That's the only good thing my old x10 was better at than this phone. I hope ICS improves this.
