Can a carrier block your blackberry's access to a bluetooth keyboard?

OK, this has been the most surreal experience. After hours of trying to get a Freedom Universal Keyboard 2 to work with my Blackberry Storm, I've been informed by my carrier, Bell Canada, that they block bluetooth on the device for everything but voice.

I'm not an expert in this but is it even possible? The bluetooth network is short range, so how can Bell control this? Surely it's just a setting on the device. If so, what do I need to change to override this?

Thanks for your help,
