Hey guys I was looking at the Lumia 800 specs and it seams it only supports Bluetooth 2.1.
My Nokia N8 supports A2DP bluetooth profile which connects automatically to my cars stereo and streams voice, audio and music in very high quality.
I understand Buetooth 2.1 is a much older profile which does not support audio streaming, neither automatic pairing to headsets, speakers ect.
What about bluetooth file sharing? Will this phone have restricted sharing as the iPhones?
Can someone please confirm this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Similarly you can't transfer photos by Bluetooth as media has to be transferred using Zune!
Happy to have helped forum with a Support Ratio = 42.5

FYI to topic opener ..Integration to car systems works perfectly (Volvo, model year 2012).
Bluetooth audio streaming, answering/ending calls (etc), contact transfers to car's telephone system, automatic pairing to car systems etc. No issues.
The Xbox 360 bluetooth headsets support ADP2, so you can stream music and netflix audio wirelessly. I'm not sure if any other bluetooth headsets work like this.
It's working now
Somehow the car's bluetooth visibility got switched off after pairing my N8, that's why the Lumia 800 could not see it. While stationary this morning I started flicking through the car's settings and found an option to make the bluetooth connection visible for three mins. Lulu was able to see the car, paired nicely and started playing her music.
