    Maybe you have a defective unit? Bluetooth works fine with mine (connected to a Bluetooth keyboard).

    No Bluetooth problems here either. I'd be in touch with customer support.

    No, it's likely not your unit. It's a known issue. I'm having the same.

    Bluetooth works great, for the first time since I bought the N7 right after launch. Before the update music via BT was TERRIBLE. tons of drop outs. The worst was when I'd do anything with the tablet as music was playing from Pandora, but it also had dropouts with my own music. Since the update, I can go HOURS without a single missed note. Hooray!

    BT dropouts have also been eliminated for me since the 4.2.2 update.

    No dropouts for me since update.Your problem sounds like something other than update.

    So, do you mean that when you go to Settings and tap the switch to turn on Bluetooth, the switch goes to the on position for a split second, then springs back to the off position? If so, I've had this happen, too.

    I think, but can't verify, that it had something to do with a 3rd party widget (Power Toggles), that lets you place assorted controls like Bluetooth and WiFi on your home screen and notification bar. When I tapped the widget to turn off Bluetooth, then attempted to turn it on again using the normal Nexus 7 settings method, the switch wouldn't stay in the on position. I tried using the widget, and still no luck. I finally rebooted my N7 and everything was back to normal.

    Again, I can't verify that it had to do with the widget, and I don't feel like trying to recreate the problem! But I can verify that I've been in a situation where the Bluetooth switch wouldn't stay in the on position.

    i cannot turn on bt either unless I go to settings, apps, all, go to blue tooth share and clear the data. Then I can turn on the blue tooth without the on off switch going back to the off position. I still have to re pair my keyboard each time which I didn't use to have to do. So every time I want to use my keyboard I have to go through this process.

    I have the same issue: turning the bluetooth on reverts back to "Off" immediately. I've never tried clearing the data, but so far, resetting the Nexus 7 brings Bluetooth back for a little while. However, as soon as I turn it off again, and leave the tablet alone for a few hours, the problem comes back. I'm not even using any power management apps on my Nexus 7 either. I use Juice Defender on my Galaxy Nexus, and it never has this problem.

    4.2.2 on the nexus 7 doesnt impress at all. Very laggy and horrid gpu rendering for me. Cant comment on bluetooth as i dont use it.

    Default Re: nexus 7 4.2.2 updated... NO BLUETOOTH FIX (now with v.4.3.0)

    I've been reading this topic and keeping an eye out for others experiences for a couple months now.

    This past week I received the v.4.3.0 update across both of my tablets.

    I have a Blue Ant Z9i bluetooth headset that apparently cannot be paired with either the tablets with the previous v.4.2.2 version or the recent v.4.3.0.

    I set the headset to be discovered in pairing mode, tell the tablet to search for devices, but neither tablet will discover the headset. Headset works fine with my Galaxy 4S phone and my wife's iPhone, so I seriously doubt it's the headset.

    I just got off the phone with Zagg customer service because my Zagg Flex Bluetooth keyboard no longer works with my 2012 Nexus 7 tablet after the OS update. The Zagg keyboard works with my older Android OS phone, so it is not the keyboard. Zagg says failure to recognize is a known problem with the latest Android OS.

    Oddly, my first-generation Macintosh aluminum Bluetooth keyboard (the model that uses three AA batteries; the new model only uses two AA batteries and I have not used that version) pairs and is recognized by the updated 2012 Nexus 7.

    Anyway, it's not your peripherals. It's the tablet's operating system in need of a patch.

    I have 4.2.2 on N7 2013. I had no problems using A2DP Bluetooth headphones until the 4.2.2 update. After the update, the bluetooth will stream music to my headphones for anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes then the BT shuts down on the tablet and will not turn back on. I have rebooted and each time it hooks back up immediately only to shut down a while later. It is a very frustrating thing to happen while commuting on public transportation.
