    BlackBerry Bridge Fix/Workaround for connectivity issues

    There seems to be a fix/workaround that fixes some of the various connectivity issues that some users have been having with the BlackBerry Bridge application.

    At first this appeared to be a complete fix however some users have reported that it opens up new problems. I tried it, and it worked with my Torch. If you cannot save your settings in the Bluetooth section, just exit without saving and the fix should still work.

    The original post was for a 9780, but the vast majority of pairing issue are with 9800 series. It seems to work with most devices.
