hi mate,

as you have Windows Phone 7.8 on your Lumia device, have you checked via the Store if you have the Nokia-exclusive Bluetooth Share app installed? That may help you with your issue.

Yes, I have Nokia-exclusive Bluetooth Share app installed and I can send photos via Bluetooth but the problem is how to select several photos in the same time to send it or delete. Now you must select photos one by one it takes a lot of time. How to select more than one photo at the same time? On PC you can press Ctrl button and select by mouse as many files as you want how to do this in Windows Phone?

Not sure if its the same on your device, but on Lumia 920 when you open the Album..Tap on the Icon at the bottom - centre and all the Photos will get a Border.. Then go on Tapping on the photo you want to select for multiple selection.. (refer Attachment)

I do not know if this further gives option for sending it thru' BT or not..but certainly there is an option to 'Delete' them as a part of your original query ...

I have Nokia Lumia 800 and I do not have such option. At place you are pointing I have only (...) symbol and there is no such option.

It is said that Lumia is a smartphone, so it is strange. This features is an elementary one. How am I supposed to work with big amount of files?

But there are other apps like private folder where you can select multiple items for copying or moving. So there is a feature in OS. But why then,Nokia is not giving option to select multiple files to do other actions?

If you have a good look at the Bluetooth sharing app, you will see that all it does is to facilitate the bluetooth connection to another device. The actual transfer uses the default sharing function  within the OS. hence, if you want to multi select files, then please head over to the Microsoft forum and ask for it there.
