Can't really understand what you are asking, but if you don't have the bluetooth option there, then you probably don't have bluetooth? What is your computer?

Is this the first time you've looked for it since upgrading to Snow Leopard?

You'll need to reset the SMC - had to do it to mine after an upgrade install.

Apple Portables: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)

Follow it explicitly.

The MB that I have now has BlueTooth, so it's kind of weird that the OPs MBP doesn't have BlueTooth?
