Hi there. I have recently bought a new Lumia 820, which is a great phone, except that I cannot connect the Lumia to my PC (win 7) via Bluetooth. I have been using phones with bluetooth for a long time, so this is not my first time. I can see my pc in the list, but when i click "connect", the phone is connected to the pc for like one second and then the connection breaks up. Transfering a single file by clicking "send" and then "bluetooth" is no problem, but the connecting directly between the pc and the phone via bluetooth instead of usb cable is no success. Can anybody help me out here please? Thank you!
Solved! Go to Solution.
A continuous data connection is not supported. In all fairness it's kind of like trying to fill a tank using a thimble.

Wow! I have the same problem trying to pair my Lumia820 with my PC(XP) and i've just now discovered that the 1-second connexion also is the case when trying to hook up to another phone (a Nokia X3)!
What is this? Why advertise a Bluetooth connexion when it doesn't finction properly?
Any leads on how to get around this, while waiting for Nokia & Co. to explain to origine of this choice?
