Bluetooth profiles

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

Headset (HSP)
This profile allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to Bluetooth® enabled headsets that support the Headset profile.
Handsfree (HFP)
This profile allows you to connect your BlackBerry device to Bluetooth enabled headsets and car kits that support the Handsfree profile.
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.
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.
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 BlackBerry device must be associated with an email account that uses a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server.
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.
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.
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.
SIM Access
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 (email, PIN and MMS messages, and browser service) 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.
