My FitBit is essential useless because of the lack of Bluetooth LE support in 8.1.
Please upvote all the feature suggestions below!
These are suggestions for Bluetooth features that Windows Phone 8.1 still does not support.
From the windowsphone.com website:
"Windows Phone 8 supports the following Bluetooth user profiles:
•Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP 1.2)
•Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP 1.4)
•Hands Free Profile (HFP 1.5)
•Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP 1.1)
•Object Push Profile (OPP 1.1)
•Out of Band (OOB) and Near Field Communications (NFC)
Windows Phone 8.1 supports the same Bluetooth user profiles as Windows Phone 8, and also supports:
•Hands Free Profile (HFP 1.6)
•Bluetooth Low Energy (LE)
For a Bluetooth device or accessory to work with your phone, the device needs to use one of the supported profiles."

http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions/suggestions/3349738-please-add-at-least-bluetooth-dun-protocol-in-wp <-- still hasn't been added in Windows Phone 8.1
What nonsense. This feature does not exist. I purchased an Android phablet; simply because I could not use a keyboard with a Lumia 1520. Microsoft, please enable this feature and I would buy your product.
This feature should not be set as completed. IOS and Android still support additional Bluetooth profiles that both Windows Phone 8.0 and Windows Phone 8.1 do not support.
Admin, I'm still unable to perform Bluetooth file transfers from other devices [pics, mp3 etc] Please launch this ability with an app [especially the 'Files' app you will be launching in June] if you don't want a system integration.
To Admin: Please share with us the link with more info about the fully functional bluetooth. I am still not able to connect and share e.g. photos with other phones and devices using bluetooth.
I think MS refuses to pay for a license from csr.com which owns the patents for Bluetooth and Apt-X Bluetooth audio streaming.

There might be a secret agenda that MS doesn't want to talk about.

This feature is now NOT available in Windows Phone 8. Add Keyboard support or I'm off to Apple.

This is not implemented. Why is it STILL marked as completed?
Given how Microsoft has blatantly ignored this feature I think we'd be stupid to assume anything other than that this will never happen on Windows Phone, despite it being supported by every other competing mobile platform.
It's a shame, I really wanted to like Windows Phone, but this is a deal breaker. I'm selling my Windows Phone.
What is completed? Where is it available on Windows Phone 8 ?
I want this. I am in front of my computer a lot and don't like to switch between typing on the computer keyboard and grab the phone to text. I want to do both from the computer keyboard. There are BT keyboards that can quickly switch between multiple devices but cannot use with my Windows 8 phone.
Adding to the chorus...
Why was this suggestion closed? Bluetooth is NOT fully functional. Our company has a specific requirement for Bluetooth HID profile so we can use barcode scanners on WP8 devices. Since the device doesn't support Bluetooth keyboards, we are forced to go to iOS or Android.
Man... I feel I have really fell into a trap! I love the windows phone and have talked so much junk about the iPhone. But this really bites. I have found so many things that the windows phone can't do that others can. I just think the Bluetooth thing just has pushed me over the edge.
Bluetooth needs to b more defined wid sms functionality. Transfering messseges via Bluetooth will really b a great option, Great achievment functionality.
+1 for BT keyboard support. The Lumia 1520 phablet would be an awesome "single device" for work travel with keyboard support. Office and email with no keyboard - what are we thinking. Make sure keyboard support includes support of up, down, left and right cursor movement keys as the long touch and float the cursor into the right spot function is highly erratic depending on the digitizer.
Bluetooth VOLUME needs to be fixed as well. The volume on bluetooth speakers, headsets, and car sets is TOO LOW TO USE.
I have to turn up the volume in my car almost to the loudest setting possible. Then when the call ends my stereo comes on full blast. UNACCEPTABLE.
Still cannot connect Logitech K810 to Nokia Lumia 1520. Asks me for code and then won't connect. Shameful.
There shouldn't to turn ON the Bluetooth from settings if we want to use it temporarily like to send image as in Nokia Symbian's phones.
