    I have a question about the Bluetooth profiles supported in the 4.5 OS. I updated my Pearl 8100 with 4.5.0.69 (or .77, I can't remember). Anyways, I need to find out what profiles are supported by this OS. In particular, does it add PBAP (Phone Book Access Profile)?

    Any body with technical knowledge of the OS? I tried searching on the BB site and came up with squat. Google didn't help much either.

    Maybe phonegeek or Crucial Xtreme or one of the other people more intimately tied in with the phone industry can find some info.

    The User MAnual (pdf online) offers the following list:

    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 device to Bluetooth enabled headsets and car kits that support the Handsfree profile.
    Serial Port Profile
    This profile allows you to connect your device to Bluetooth enabled devices that support desktop connectivity, wireless bypass, and
    data transfer.
    Desktop Connectivity
    This service allows you to connect your 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 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.
    Your device must be associated with an email account that uses a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
    Data Transfer
    This service allows you to connect your 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 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 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.
