Windows Phone 7 supports Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate). This is an improved version of Bluetooth that automates the pairing process between Windows Phone 7 and Bluetooth devices, such as phone headsets, car audio systems, and speaker docks.
Windows Phone 7 supports the following Bluetooth user profiles:
- Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP 1.2)
- Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP 1.3)
- Hands Free Profile (HFP 1.5)
- Headset Profile (HSP 1.1)
- Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP 1.1)
Currently, Windows Phone 7 does not include support for the following:
Object Push Profile (OPP), which lets you send and receive items such as contacts, pictures, and music over Bluetooth through mobile-to-mobile, or mobile-to-computer connections.
If you'd like these features to be added, you can go to the
Windows Phone Feature Suggestions
website and make requests for future releases.
In some cases, Bluetooth devices don't follow industry-standard Bluetooth communication protocols, so changes in the Windows Phone software may affect how these devices respond. If your Bluetooth device doesn't work as expected, this doesn't mean there's a problem with your phone.
If you continue to have connection problems, try contacting your Bluetooth device manufacturer.
