Default [Q] Any fix for broken bluetooth with HW +/- 0003?

Well, I just got bitten by this bug:

https://community.sprint.com/baw/mes...5641?tstart=0#

I have tried multiple roms, different versions of CM, wiped, etc and still, bt sees nothing and nothing sees bt. I went to sprint store and they confirmed others have had the same issue and have had to get their phones replaced.

Is there ANY fix for this? HTC apparently has no idea about it and no plans to fix it.

As a last resort, you can try a RUU. If this doesn't fix your problem, you most likely have a hardware issue and will need to have your device replaced.

I have had that problem with one of my replacements from Sprint. Simply bring it back to them. Activate TEP protection if you need to ($4 per month) and they will order another replacement for you.

Well I talked to local sprint store and chat and phone tech support. I doubt they will let me activate insurance then replace it like that?

I tried captain throwbacks deodexed rom. No dice.

How does this happen after a few years? Didn't a recent update break it? I can't imagine it was sudden hardware failure, affecting so many people.

They did for me. Some reps might tell you to wait 14 days, while others will activate it right away. I was able to bring mine in the same day that I activated it.

So even if they knew beforehand that it was like this?

That says you're only eligible 30 days after upgrade/activation.

I have TEP+Repair on my account. I started having flaky BT around July, definitely after 12 month warranty, and I told them my phone was acting crap on BT. They confirmed that it was a known issue and ordered a replacement, no fuss.

This was my second EVOLTE replacement. The first was replaced around September the year before for a failed LTE radio.

BTW @H0wdy, have you had the EVOLTE more than 12 months? If you've had it less, then the replacement will [usually] be covered under manufacturer warranty, regardless of TEP, provided there is no sign of water damage.
