Bluetooth will not connect to a 710

I have a lumina :w00t:o, wife has  lumia 710.

Bluetooth will not pair.

Message i get on the 800 is " Nokia Lumia 710 will not connect"

The codes are the same

That is normal behaviour as neither phone currently supports bluetooth file transfer. So at the moment there is no need to pair windows phones to other phones. This may change in a future software update if Microsoft decides to allow bluetooth file transfers.

Why won't a lumia 800 connect to a lumia 710?

They cannot connect to each other because they have no reason to. Why do you want to connect them when it's not currently possible to transfer files between them?

Re: Bluetooth will not connect to a 710

Yes they have reason to.

To send a file or photo to or from a phone.

Bluetooth does that on any other phone or device.

No point in bluetooth even being in a phone if it cant be used wherever or with what devices i choose.

May as well unistall it.

Craziest thing i have ever heard " it won't connect becasue it has no reason to" it has a reason to send a photo to another device.

I would not have bought these phones if i know that.

Why isnt it in the specs?

"Phone has bluetooth that will not connect because it has no reason to"

What does it have that does not work becasue it has no reason to?

As I clearly stated in my first post Bluetooth file transfers are not supported. That being the case it is not possible to pair lumia's for transferring files. Pairing with Bluetooth audio accessories and car kits is supported.

The fact that Bluetooth file transfer is not supported is the issue.
