Hello and thanks for reading.
Ive had the lumia for a few days and most of my phones have been Nokias in the past as I prefur the ease of use with them......untill now
I will admit this phone looks and feels very slick, it works very quickly with little lag, simplistic menus and sharp screen...But....
this phone will amaze anyone with the things it CAN do, but also the things it CANT do.
It seems I cannot rename videos or pictures unless I wire it up to the laptop/computer and mess around in Zume (Conzume I will call it) it syncs the phone but I want to upload to youtube as I have a channel on there but this Zume programme wont let me copy and paste to my hard drive. Its a windows phone so why cant it act like windows lol I cant drag and drop to my computer and if I try to upload to utube it wont find zume only other hard drives.
My last phone was the N95 8GB and that will let you do what you like when you connect it with a USB.
I cant Edit videos on the phone either?
I see someone else has mentioned it wont connet by bluetooth to ANYTHING..I mean other slightly older Nokias which I cant believe I tried to send all my old videos and pics from my N95 to the lumia but says its not supported????? Unbelieveable!
Please tell me Nokia will sort this as its a major let down as its so simple.
I know it wants to share everything I do but if I wanted that Id call a Newspaper
Can someone please explain the "cloud" to me as It seems its storing your videos and pics to then pay for when you want to watch them as your using mobile internet all the time?
I had a close friend send me an mms message, and in that messgae it said 'get media content now' so I did... Thing is, were the hell does the content get stored to, because I sure as heck cant find it!

Bluetooth????? **** does it even connect to anything ?I even tried to connect it to a toaster with no avail lol
HTC = Bluetooth sez Noooooooooo
Other Nokia N95 = bluetooth sez nooooooooooo
Toaster= Bluetooth sez noooooooooo
Samsung = Bluetooth sez noooooooooo
So the question Will Nokia sort out this monsterous problem or continue to bury there head in the sand and watch the flag ship phone sink quicker than Katy Prices reputation?
Come on Nokia sort it out.
Put an "exit" option in internet explorer while your at it.
"Rename" option on videos Is a must!!!!!!
No "Edit" on videos either? "Do it on your computer" you say????
If I Was At home then I would not be on my Mobile!
No more waiting, no more excuses
MODERATOR'S NOTE: Post edited,foul and offensive language used trying to bypass filter.
1) It's called Zune note Zume
2) When your photos and videos are synced with Zune, they get stored on your hard drive (everything does). Just look in your videos folder, they should be there. Otherwise they will probably be in your camera roll in your pictures folder Zune is an application, not a place on your hard drive so of course it's not going to appear.
3) Once you've connected your phone to Zune and it appears, set the sync options to what you want. It can sync automatically and even do WiFi sync. So it can actually be even more convenient than with your N95 8GB.
4) Your Nokia supports Bluetooth A2DP and PBAP. So it will connect to bluetooth headsets and car kits etc. It will do phonebook stuff. For sharing music and videos, there's no bluetooth option unfortunately, it's email.
5) You can disable auto-upload to skydrive if you want. Pictures and Videos are stored on the phone.
6) It's a SMARTphone, it's supposed to use data.
My beefs with this phone include
There have been many other niggles with this phone since I got it & a lot of them I can not currently remember, but the overall feeling is one of restriction. It seems it's their way or the highway. I'd always avoided going for an Iphone due to the lack of freedoms of that system, but it looks like I've inadvertently ended up with something very similar.
On a final note I'd like to say this is one of the finest, if not THE finest looking phone on the market today. I've wanted one ever since I saw it's initial incarnation as the N9. In fact I think I'd have been happier with an N9 if only they'd had the balls to distribute it in this country. However, when the Lumia IS working it's as smooth as silk & a joy to behold. I'm hoping that when I get it back, a lot of these woes will be behind me & I can get back to my initial love affair with it. If Nokia and Microsoft can iron out the problems then this phone & the forthcoming 900 will put them back on the map. My fear is that if they don't get a grip soon, it could be too late.
