I know why providers disable the various Bluetooth options on different
phones, but I'm wondering if it's possible to restore the full Bluetooth
functionality.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on why a provider would do this. ...

Security. (Google "Bluejacking".)
Piracy. (File sharing.)

John, I'm afraid neither explains why for $109 I can get a phone with full
BT, and for $129 I get a phone with BT brain-dead, from the same provider.
I'm still thinking that the disfunction is originated at the phone
manufacturer, not the service provider.
