After upgrading to Leopard, I am unable to use Bluetooth networking with phone

I have a MacBook 17 and a BlackBerry Storm. Until last week (when I upgraded to Leopard) I was able to connect to the internet via the BlueTooth connection FLAWLESSLY!

I upgraded to Leopard and have NOT been able to connect ONE TIME. I am not sure what Apple has changed in the software, but it seems to have broke the BlueTooth DUN...

Does anyone have any suggestions. I have searched and found people saying, they had "special scripts" running with Leopard broke, but I didn't even have special scripts. I simply paired the two and put in the verizon #777 to dial the internet and it was fantastic.

ANY information on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Since this is a HIGH points value, I will not split.  I will only award to the person who provides information leading to a direct arrest of the culprit that broke this ;)

Try resetting the PRAM by cold booting while holding down the command-option-p-r key combination until you hear the boot chime for a third time.

If that doesn't work, try resetting the SMC:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1411

By the way, after upgrading to Leopard, did you then upgrade to 10.5.7?

If not, I suggest you download and install the 10.5.7 combo updater:  http://wsidecar.apple.com/cgi-bin/nph-reg3rdpty2.pl/product=24998&cat=60&platform=osx&method=sa/MacOSXUpdCombo10.5.7.dmg

I thought I had updated to 10.5.7, but I am only at 10.5.6.  Updating now.  I did try the PRAM and (if I did it right) it didn'twork.  Also did the reset of the SMC, but I don't think that happened correctly.  Going back to look at the directions agin.  Nothing really happened when I reset the SMC...  I am going to update to .7 and then see, then go do the SMC again.

There are a number of posts on the Apple discussion forms stating that re-setting the PMU does the trick.

Also make sure that Bluetooth is turned on. You may have to re-pair your bluetooth device.

Thanks.. I did delete all BlueTooth devices and re-paired them, yeah, the first time it wasn't on. :)  I just completed the upgrade and will try the PMU again.  Is there anything I should expect to see.

That did it, I think.  I upgraded to .7.  I went through and deleted the BlueTooth Device.  I reset the PMU based on my MacBook's instructions.  I then Re-Paired the device (It defaulted to a RIM 8700.  I changed it to the Other, Verizon Support (PC 5220) and put in the #777 for the phone number and away it went!  

I tried it before I changed it to the PC 5220 and it did not connect so, I put it to the PC 5220 and it worked great.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
