Allowing Bluetooth enabled devices to access your contacts
You can allow Bluetooth enabled devices that support the Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP) to access
the contact information in the Contacts app on your BlackBerry device. For example, if you allow access
to all of your contacts, when you pair your device with your Bluetooth enabled car kit and you receive a
call from a contact, your car kit can display the name of the caller.
When you allow access to your contact information:
• If you previously paired and connected your BlackBerry device running BlackBerry 10 OS version
10.3.0 or earlier with a Bluetooth enabled device, such as a car kit, the Bluetooth enabled device
automatically accesses contact information on your device.
• The first time you pair and connect your device running BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.1 or later with
a Bluetooth enabled device, such as a car kit, you receive a notification on your BlackBerry device
asking you to confirm that you allow access to your contact information.
