Bluetooth Printer Status

I have developed a windows forms app (vb.net) that prints to a Polaroid GL10 printer. The app maintains a print queue if the printer is not in range or turned off, however it still sends the photo to the printer if it is out of paper. The printer accepts the file (returning "OK, Final") but doesn't print it. Is there a way to determine the printer status via bluetooth before I push file so that I can avoid this scenario?

Does is support BPP (or BIP, or even HCRP)? Maybe they expose more status information.  You'd probably want to use Brecham.Obex to speak to BPP/BIP.
