Not crazy at all. If the carrier or manufacturer doesn't make a newer OS available for your phone then your options are get a new phone or root and install a custom ROM.
The bluetooth stack implementation isn't consistent across all phones, many have problems. I rooted my SGS2, upgraded to ICS from GB and most of my BT connectivity problems disappeared. Once in a blue moon it doesn't want to connect but simply toggling it off/on on the phone fixes it every time.
