Support for full Bluetooth profiles - including accessories, keyboards, low energy
Windows Phone loses usability, market visibility and relevance, and falls behind competing products by not supporting the HID Bluetooth profile (and others) for actions such as hooking up Bluetooth accessories including game controllers, keyboards, and low energy accessories e.g. sport (Pebble). Full compatibility between WP8 and the massive Bluetooth ecosystem is important to
Please allow SPP support so that WP users can use many different types of bluetooth accessories. iOS and Android both allow this, and there is no reason (I know of) why Windows Phone 8 shouldn't have it either.
support for bluetooth 4 and low energy technology for sport and fitness accessories! look this video!
As a business user, an external keyboard is indispensible when taking notes at meetings.
My Symbian E71x had this compatibility--FIVE YEARS AGO
You want business users to take WP7 seriously, and to open up the business market wide? You will need more that Office integration--One of the great draws of a Smart Phone is the freedom from carrying around a heavy notebook or laptop-- a collapsing Bluetooth keyboard allows this to happen, when taking notes at a meeting, or when writing a report on a plane.
WHY DOESN'T WP7 HAVE THIS SIMPLE PROTOCOL YET?
BIP - Basic Imaging Profile
BPP - Basic Printing Profile
FTP - File Transfer Profile
HID - Human Interface Device Profile
SPP - Serial Port Profile
rSAP - remote Sim Access Profile
There are heaps more profiles as well, but the inclusion of these ones would make Windows Phone better than ANY other operating system out there.
Pretty much all the big names - iPhone, Android, Blackberry etc.. Support bluetooth connectivity to mini bluetooth keyboards which a great many people prefer to the often 'limp wristed' touch screen keyboard - Silly to think a Windows phone 7 didn't include a feature that is present on every other phone AND even present on the old windows phone, 6.5 if I'm correct.

Add this option in WP7 Office. The abbility to print documents directly from WP7 to any bluetooth or wifi printer.
iOS and Android support it, why doesn't WP8?????????
keyboard badly needed
I need SAP bluetooth profile.

My GDR3 Lumia 920 still does not support the DUN/PAN (use of internet connection over bluetooth) or MAP (access to text message content) at all. Have not tried it, because it is not a main use case for me personally, but I suspect BT keyboards are also still not supported. This sucks. Still hoping for this to appear in Windows Phone Blue (8.1?) or another more future version... :-/
Just tried to pair my new "state-of-the-art" WP8 Lumia 1020 with an old IGo Stowaway keyboard (much better than recent BT KB) and nothing - connects then disconnects 5 sec afterward. You have got to be kidding that something as simple as HID is not supported by a supposedly latest generation top end WP8 device.
PLEASE FIX THIS IN GDR 3
There are now pages and pages of angry people complaining about your failure to implement something as simple as BT HID so that keyboards (others might be interested in toys) can be used.
Many are also saying they are going to dump you as without HID WP8 has restricted productivity and business use.
There is no indication that you are even listening. Let alone doing anything. Is this in GDR3 which is said to have a better BT stack? If not, then why not?

The inability to pair a BT keyboard to my Nokia Lumia 1020 is so frustrating.
Is Bluetooth connection with rSAP protocoll includet in GDR3 - hope so then I can use my car with Windows phone again :):):)

I would love to have DUN, so I can share my Internet connection over Bluetooth.
HID! HID! HID! HID!
I need urgent the dial up networking or better full bluetooth functionality. It is very pity that the customers can't use basic smartphone functions, which are already known since 5-6 years.
I am diappointed that my new Lumia 925 cannot hook up an external GPS device. I will get another phone and put this one in the drawer.

My car cannot read SMSs via BT with L925. With Nokia E52 it worked !!
Microsoft are run by idiots.
