    ahha **** yeah that sucks then..

    What are the symptoms exactly? When it happened to me, the bluetooth menu icon when I clicked it, would say "no bluetooth device found" even if 1 minute earlier I was transferring a file from my phone to my Mac through bluetooth - a transfer that failed. Sometimes a reboot would fix it but not for long...

    Had to send it in at the Apple Store and have it replaced.

    Patrix.

    at least you are able to see your bluetooth icon under system reference...
