Bluetooth Notification

Hey Guys,

I am brand new to the blackberry API but a long time java programmer and I would like to develop a simple program that sends the incomming call notification to a paired BT headset whenever the phone recieves a text message/email/PIN...(these will be the options) and I have no idea where to start. I have the JDE and the simulator working great and I have even modified many aspects of the sample BT program the come with the JDE but I still need to find the BT API and someone with some knowlege to give me some direction.Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: Bluetooth Notification

The BlackBerry API set does not provide programmatic access to the Bluetooth headset profile.  You can the profiles that are available to third party applications here:
