Arduino Uno to Bluesmirf help please

I am working with a group trying to build an Android phone controlled, soccer playing robot. It is controlled by an Arduino Uno and we have succeeded at controlling the robot through a USB connection between the Arduino and a laptop, however we haven't been able to send commands through our BluesMiRF bluetooth adapter to the arduino from a PC or an Android phone. We followed the instructions from SparkFun for installing the sMiRF. (https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/using-the-bluesmirf) We can pair devices with the sMiRF, but can't enter command mode through a serial. (CMD is not printed in the serial and the green LED doesn't come on, but the red LED does increase speed appropriately.)

Just to let you know, there's probably not as many people who have those here as on the Sparkfun forum.

Thank you. I posted on the sparkfun forums as well.
