Bluetooth Icon Disappeared in Taskbar

I just set up my TP for tethering by making the two registry changes covered in other posts. Now when I turn on bluetooth, I don't see the bluetooth icon in the taskbar area. The bluetooth works fine but I'm a little concerned that without the icon I'll forget to turn it off when done.

Thanks for the help.

Chris

By the way, this is a great site. The knowledge base is just amazing.

Re: Bluetooth Icon Disappeared in Taskbar

not sure if this is related to the tethering reg edits... what else have you installed lately?

Re: Bluetooth Icon Disappeared in Taskbar

If I can remember reading some thread that changing the dialer skin to the old windows default will also cause the BT icon to disappear.

Re: Bluetooth Icon Disappeared in Taskbar

I also installed the trial version of WMWiFiRouter but have only used it once to see how it works. Another thing I noticed is that I sometimes see the battery charging icon when the phone is not plugged in.

Re: Bluetooth Icon Disappeared in Taskbar

I may also have this problem with my Touch Pro and I have been watching the phone and saw it disappear. When this happens the phone drops the Bluetooth connection to my hands free car kit and the car kit can not re-establish a connection.

When this happens I can go into the Comm Manager in TF3D and it still indicates that Bluetooth is enabled. If I try to turn Bluetooth off (using the little toggle in the TF3D Comm Manager) it will flip to off and back to on again. The Bluetooth icon is still missing from the taskbar.

I have found that it seems that the Bluetooth just goes away (crashes?) on its own once in a while. At first the way I was getting Bluetooth back was a reboot. I have since found that I can go into the Settings, Click the Connections tab, and then click Bluetooth. If I then click "Add a new device..." I will quickly see an error message (can't remember what it says, something about a problem with bluetooth) but the Bluetooth icon will suddenly reappear on the taskbar. If I am in the car the car kit will connect automatically within a couple of seconds.

Kind of annoying that Bluetooth just seems to die on this phone. At least I have found a faster way of getting it back without waiting for a reboot. I have not done anything funny with my dialer skin or WMWiFiRouter and the phone is stock so I do not know what might be causing this. Maybe this phone does not like the Parrot handsfree...

My TP works fine with the hands-free Parrot setup in my truck although we probably have different Parrot models......(mine is outboard with my Eclipse DVD/NAV unit)

Re: Bluetooth Icon Disappeared in Taskbar

Now I cant get the dial pad to come up at all(htc skin enabled),by pressing the talk button or phone lsk when in landscape. If I can get it to call by contacts the dial pad has no numbers or letters. Switching back to the windows dialer works but then no icons show up. Any suggestions? Stock rom
