Don't you see, this is Nokia's "differentiation" at work. By having a
UI which doesn't meet the user's requirements, they can ensure that
competitors can't take their code and produce something just as
limited! (*cough* #303 *cough* ;-))

In all seriousness, I just leave Bluetooth on all the time now, and
allow paired devices to initiate connections that way. I would imagine
that Bluetooth hasn't had quite the power usage focus as WLAN, but it
should have had *some*.
