Intermittent Connectivity

Hi Jonas and the rest of the Bluetools Community,

I am developing a mobile multi-player game to be played by teams of middle-schoolers for an hour or so. I am evaluating the possibility of having an action taken on one PDA cause some effect on another player's PDA. The game logistics allow us to take time up front to ensure valid connections with the other team members. As the teams wander around the game area however, the connections are bound to be broken. I envision re-establishing the connections on a timer and re-trying to send the pertinent data. We can give the players simple instructions such as "Stand near each other and press the button again," but resetting the device would be out of the question. Given the unreliability of the DiscoverDevices function, is there a way to programmatically re-establish the connection WITHOUT using DiscoverDevices?

Thanks,
Lisa
