    Having exactly the same problem. I have found a work-around that helps on reconnecting after entering to the misterious loop. It also helps on making the first connection more surely succesfull.

    Before making the first (or second or third) connection via Bluetooth, I reconfigure the the Bluetooth Device:

    1. From Bluetooth menu (upper right corner on the screen, next to to the clock on most macs) I select "Set up Bluetooth Device..."

    2. Select Next and then "Mobile Phone"

    3. Select your mobile phone (it's BT must be visible)

    4. Next and next... etc.

    After having finished this procedure the connection should be work. But this does not help on the most annoying problems like dropping and getting the whole BT unavailable, as described on the post that I am replying to.

    Hope that this helps you guys too (even a little bit).

    Same problem here with my N82.

    Not acceptable with such a high pricely product.

    Hope they'll fix it.

    The worst thing: Everytime an error occurs in Leo, I think it is MY fault 'cause I heard Mac's would have no bugs, but it is!

    Ditto with a Nokia N82 on the Fido network, connecting from a Powerbook G4 running 10.5.5.

    First few times I connected via BT to the phone I was able to stay on for hours. Now it seems that I'm disconnected suddenly after only a few minutes. Only way to start again is to reboot the Powerbook and the phone.
