You can't. It doesn't support it. Might be in the next update.

Its been confirmed that Bluetooth file sharing is in the 7.8 update so its not a case of might, its a case of when. Nokia has yet to give a date as its waiting for Microsoft to finalise the 7.8 update. Hopefully it will be before Christmas.

beside the ringtones it would be nice if they implement an option to set a custom message tone too.

City lens requires a compass. The Nokia Lumia 510 and 610 both do not have a compass built in.

The Lumia 800 doesn't have a compass if you live in the southern hemisphere.

 

Well, it does but it doesn't work well enough to be useable.  BTW, who was the genius who put a magnet latch on the USB door?  If you open it, the compass swings round 90 degrees and even then it's still wrong.

What usability improvements if any can we look forward to with WP 7.8 regarding volume control, silent mode, text cursor control, calendar month view and call history?

and many more. Windows Phone needs good hardware performance and offers less than cells without OS from 2003...

By the way I have heard some rumors that 7.8 is out today...

I really hope there are just a few extras not being mentioned.

 

I think it is very important the fontszie option from WP8 comes to 7.X phones. Many people over the age of 40 cant read the small text on the 710 and 800.

 

Other than that I'd love to see a few other small things from WP8 such as Multi file select, Screen Cap, Photo Editing (crop, rotate) and Lockscreen Charms.

 

I think that would make 7.8 a solid phone then... here hopnig this stuff is in 7.8 it just isnt being spoken of.

If there are any software limitations in WP 7.5 that restricts Nokia Maps+Drive from being upgraded to at least the Symbian level, it must definitely be corrected in the WP upgrade.

We wont get the new nokia maps with the 7.8 :smileysad:

 

New maps are only for windows 8 phones:
New Nokia Maps on Marketplace

 

Even Nokia sed that old Lumia phones wont get the maps:

Conversations By Nokia

 

What about existing Lumia owners?

Although these new feature of Nokia Maps are not going to be available for current Windows Phone users

I'm ok with that, if we just could get the Symbian version ported to Lumia. Preferably with improved routing algorithms, since Nokia Maps often suggest strange detours when other map services like Google Maps and Eniro.se finds the best way.
