You use the Allowed Bluetooth profilesGroup Policy setting to specify the Bluetooth profiles that a user can access on a managed Windows Mobile device. When you enable this policy setting, only the profiles contained in an allowed profiles list are available for use on the device. You specify an allowed profile by adding its universally unique identifier (UUID) to the list.

The default setting is Not Configured. When you change this setting, any targeted managed devices will restart after the change is applied.

The following list shows the profiles and their UUIDs for devices that use the Microsoft® Bluetooth stack.

If the OEM replaces the Microsoft Bluetooth stack with a third-party Bluetooth stack, or extends the Microsoft Bluetooth stack with a custom profile, you have to use the UUIDs that are applicable for that stack.
