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.
