I have Toshiba sattellite L500 and a blackberry bold 9000.  I am also have Blackberry Desktop Software v6.0.0.40. I have paired my blackberry with the Bluetooth Manager.  However, when I open the Blackberry Desktop Software and go to Tools > Desktop Options > Bluetooth tab I find that the Bluetooth functionality is not accessible (greyed out).  Is there anyway to resolve this as I would like to sync using Bluetooth.

Thanks.  the only issue now seems to be with the Blackberry.  Under the Bluetooth options the services Desktop Connectivity and Wireless Bypass are greyed out.  Is there a way to fix that?
