If your BlackBerry smartphone uses a SIM card, this profile allows you to use a Bluetooth enabled car kit to control the SIM card on your BlackBerry smartphone 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 smartphone, 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 smartphone.

To use this service, your email account must use a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
