Still no Bluetooth share for my Lumia 800 (US Marketplace)

Updated with the latest firmware and bla bla bla yes it is up to date, but still no Bluetooth share. Why ??? This issue is listed here first a long time ago and still nothing. So if some moderator could bring an official statement that could bring some light to this issue that would be just great.

Re: Still no Bluetooth share for my Lumia 800 (US Marketplace)

Hi NihilantWonder.

 

We're sorry to say that Bluetooth Share application is not available in US. Availability of specific features on future updates as access to certain applications is dependent on operator activation. Also, note that due to licensing arrangements with the Bluetooth providers, Nokia Bluetooth Share service is specific to certain countries.

 

Alternatively, you can use the SkyDrive account to put your media files to the cloud storage and let people download them. More information can be found from windows.microsoft.com/skydrive.

Re: Still no Bluetooth share for my Lumia 800 (US Marketplace)

Thanks for response. So is there any chance that it would become available in US, or is there some way to get past this? I mean, would it help if i change language/region settings in my phone (it actually changes availability of certain apps) or is this due to my account that is registered in US and i cant help this, unless i put an account that is registered in other country in my phone as the primary account ?

We don't have information if it will be available to US or not. However, you can try to do the following:

 

1. You can try to change the region/country set on your Windows Live ID.

2. You can also change the language+region settings on the phone to other countries supporting the application.

 

These require a reset on the phone so you would have to sync your files first to Zune and backup other information. You can refer to the below link particularly: .

I will try it and if I figure out something I will let you know if it worked. Till then it would be great if you could dig up some more info about the availability of this app for other markets. Also I think it would be very helpful, if we knew for whitch markets it is available and for which not. A little helplist for users. That would be nice.

Thank you for response.

Re: Still no Bluetooth share for my Lumia 800 (US Marketplace)

Ok...so I tried changing region/language settings. No use, I also tried to register the phone through another Live accounts (one Slovak, one UK), but still nothing. But I am able to download Ringtone Maker through all of them. Isnt this some firmware version issue ?
