    Power down and pull the battery. Had the same problem just this morning and that fixed it.

    I finally got it to work after rebooting the Droid twice.

    What's causing this problem? I sometimes wonder if one of the apps I installed from the open development android market is conflicting with my droid?

    It happens to me also. I just reboot the Droid by holding down the shift alt del keys to fix it.

    I also have the issue where Bluetooth won't turn on (Droid X). I was fooling around Sunday trying to pair it with a Zumo 550 which was problematic. I eventually got tied up doing other things and was going to retry today. I rebooted several times and pulled the battery twice--no dice. It just "tries" to turn on but eventually times out and remains off. Very frustrating!

    I had the same issue several times. A couple times rebooting fixed it, but what seemed to fix it permanently for me was going into Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> Bluetooth and clearing the cache and data.
    I had to re-pair my headset, but I haven't had a problem since.

    I found a post with those steps as well and tried them. No luck for me--Bluetooth will not even turn on... so can't try to pair it with anything.

    Is there an App or workaround to let my Moto Droid let my bluetooth earphone make a voice dial call out? I'm told when the new 2.2 update comes out, it will let me. Is that for sure?

    Man, that really stinks. Factory reset did the trick for me... I wonder if you have a hardware problem. Might be worth taking it in to have them check it out for you.

    Yeah I'm afraid of that
    I don't wanna turn my phone in though because its got the bubbled keyboard and metal bezel around the keyboard. Maybe ill see if they will send me a phone and just swap the mobo that has bluetooth on it. And then send them back the replacement.
