What Bluetooth profiles does the iPhone support?

The iPhone, at this time, supports only two of the 27 existing Bluetooth profiles.

Currently supported are:
Hands-Free Profile (HFP)
Headset Profile (HSP)

The hope is that support for other profiles will become available as future updates come to the iPhone. This list will be updated as that occurs.

Update: See the latest iPhone-supported Bluetooth profiles here.

Does the iPhone have GPS support?

UPDATE: The officially announed second-generation iPhone 3G has built-in GPS. Check out the specs on the new 3G iPhone here.


The first release of the iPhone does not include GPS. It is possible that Apple may release an add-on hardware device that would offer GPS support to iPhone owners.

We expect the second coming of the iPhone to support GPS, as well as many other advanced features.

Will a T-Mobile SIM card work in my iPhone? They are both GSM/EDGE.

Out of the box, the GSM version of the Apple iPhone (up to the iPhone 4) and the iPhone 4S will only work on Apple approved GSM providers (i.e. AT&T).

T-Mobile SIM cards can be used in an iPhone that has been jailbroken and unlocked via third party software. There are a variety of commercial and non-commercial software options available which unlock the iPhone.
