My bluetooth icon in the top car is greyed out with a horizontal lightning bolt looking icon crossed through it. In my system preferences, bluetooth file sharing doesn't appear under Internet & Wireless. When I spotlight bluetooth File Exchange, it says: "No Bluetooth Hardware Found. In order to use this application, you must have a bluetooth module. Pleaser verify that your bluetooth hardware is properly attached to the computer." Also, Bluetooth Firmware Update says that the firmware is in face up to date. after installing Mac OSX 10.6.3, i thought it would start working again. No such luck
What do I need to do to utilize my bluetooth capability once again?
MacBook 2.4GHz 4GB RAM, iPhone 3G 16GB, AppleTV 160GB, Time Capsule 500GB, Mac OSX 10.6.3

I have a MacBook Pro and am trying to sync my Blackberry with my bluetooth in my Mac....both are discoverable, but it asks for a passkey to make the connection. I've never set a passkey for either one of them before, as this is the first time I've tried this.....Any suggestions?
I had the same problem on my new iMac 27" (i5). Even the Bluetooth icon in the System Preferences pane had disappeared. After several restarts (with everything unplugged, after repairing disk permissions, after deleting BT preferences), resetting the PRAM finally worked.
