Bluetooth profiles

Depending on your BlackBerry® device model and wireless network, some profiles might not be supported.

Audio Source (A2DP):
This profile allows you to output audio from your BlackBerry device to Bluetooth® enabled devices that support stereo audio such as stereo headsets, speakers, and car kits.
A/V Remote Control (AVRCP):
This profile allows you to use the buttons on a Bluetooth enabled headset to perform actions such as adjusting the volume or playing the next or previous media file on your BlackBerry device.
Data Transfer:
This service allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to Bluetooth enabled devices that support the transfer of data such as media files.
Desktop Connectivity:
This service allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to a Bluetooth enabled computer that is running BlackBerry® Desktop Software so that you can synchronize your organizer data.
Dial-Up Networking (DUN):
This profile allows you to use your BlackBerry device as a modem when it is connected to a Bluetooth enabled computer that is running BlackBerry Desktop Software.
Handsfree (HFP):
This profile allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to Bluetooth enabled headsets and car kits that support the Handsfree profile.
Headset (HSP):
This profile allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to Bluetooth enabled headsets that support the Headset profile.
Message Access Profile (MAP):
This profile allows you to use a Bluetooth enabled car kit with your BlackBerry device to notify you of new messages. This profile can also help you read, delete, browse, compose, and send messages.
Serial Port Profile:
This profile allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to Bluetooth enabled devices that support desktop connectivity, wireless bypass, and data transfer.
SIM Access:
If your BlackBerry device uses a SIM card, this profile allows you to use a Bluetooth enabled car kit to control the SIM card on your BlackBerry device so that you can make and receive calls using the car kit. When you use this feature, data services (browser service, email messaging, PIN messaging, and MMS messaging) are not available on your device, and phone services are accessible only through the car kit. Before you can use this feature, you might need to enter a 16-digit alphanumeric code, generated by the car kit, on your BlackBerry device.
Wireless Bypass:
This service allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to a Bluetooth enabled computer that is running BlackBerry Desktop Software so that you can send and receive email messages and synchronize your organizer data without using a connection to the wireless network. To use this service, your email account must use a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server.
