WP 7.8

I have a Lumia 710 last update 1600.3036.8853.12440 OS 7.10.8862.144 WP 7.8

 

Bluetooth is not working, I can't pair to other phones/pc or send pictures, etc. I thought WP 7.8 was fixing this problem...or is it another update coming in?

Anyone :Cool: ?

Re: WP 7.8

Windows phone 7.x does not support the File transfer Protocol so you need the app/support built in to the Nokia Firmware to send files using ObjectPushProfile.

 

Using this you can send, but not receive files. This is well documented and explained in several places. Also need the Bluetooth transfer app provided by Nokia.

Hi, I'm sure it was inlcuded in wp 7.8, when were discussing it and the Nokia tech came out with a list of improvements included in the upgrade, the bluetooth share was there, anyway for now I've got this

http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/products/windows-phone-7-8-update/

it's an app, I am not sure whether I will have other upgrades or it's the last

 

thanks again...well I have 3 phones :smileyvery-happy:

The bluetooth file transfer support is not in the OS, it is in the Nokia Firmware. To use it you need to get the app as well.

Re: WP 7.8

Hello, I have a Lumia 710 which is unlocked too (sim free), I upgraded connecting to Zune and the only thing that isn't working as promised is the bluetooth share, but there's an app called 'bluetooth share' that is working well, so you can pair and send/receive files. I had same problems with a Nokia C6-01 upgrade to symbian belle, so pratically I reset the phone to fabric and redownloaded the upgrade, that fixed everything for me. You could try to connect the phone to Zune to see if you can reinstall the upgrade...if it doesn't I'd consider a reset or maybe an email to the support to see if they have any suggestion

So, bluetooth share isn't working but is working well, all in the same sentence. Any chance you could make your mind up and stop confusing other people as well ?

Re: WP 7.8

But it's you again...the bluetooth in WP 7.8 isn't pairing nor with the pc or with other phones so it's not working at all, to have bluetooth that's sharing you need to d/l an app from the marketstore and run that, meaning pairing and sharing with the app...is it clear now..maybe I am a fast typist

Re: WP 7.8

Yes, me again. You misunderstand this matter.

 

Bluetooth pairing with another device works just fine as long as the required Bluetooth Profile is supported on both ends. Once pairing has been established and the target device is known  you can select it when sending a file and it will connect, set up the transfer, transfer the file and disconnect.

Re: WP 7.8

Yes I understood well it's not a bleutooth sharing with any device like any enabled pc or any phone or tablet that is bluetooth enabled, so you need to d/l an app for the purpouse

Re: WP 7.8

Even with the app you can't pair on a streaming or permanent connection. Only incidental on an as needed basis. The current support for file transfer is Nokia specific and part of the firmware, not the OS
