Anyone using this particular bluetooth shield?

http://iteadstudio.com/product/stackable-bluetooth-shield-bt-shield-v2-0/

I can't for the life of me figure out how to set this thing up.  I have it plugged into my arduino uno, and I am unable to see the device over bluetooth.  I used their sample program, but the website is so terrible that there is no indication of what the code is supposed to do and no documentation whatsoever.

Please help smiley-sad

did you see this
and have you implemented it?

... after a long research I noticed that it is needed a pull down resistor on pin 0 to make it work.

Now it works flawlessly without any modification in the code.

Without this pull down resistor at pin 0 the arduino can not read the data received through the BT shield.

That did it! Dang, cant believe I missed that.  I wonder why it didn't come with that implemented from factory.
