My main media PC sits in my basement and does not have a monitor attached (just a small build in LCD touchscreen) and I download a number of podcasts daily which I then transfer to my phone so I can listen to them while I'm driving. I just bought a lumia 820 3 weeks ago. I'm coming from a BB torch 9800. I am seriously disappointed in the lack of the ability to transfer MP3's etc.. to my new phone via my home WiFi. This is something I've been doing with my BB for a couple years and I didn't realize these new phones weren't going to use Zune which has transfer via WiFi same as BB.
OK, So I know this method isn't wonderful or fast but at least I don't need to sit at my PC and plug in constantly.
Since I still have my old BB I transfer the files to my BB first which is done on Wifi so it only takes a couple minutes. Then I transfer them to my Lumia via bluetooth. Not very elegant but it's working.BT is slow but I can at least do it while I'm shaving or having my morning coffee and no need to plug in. I did try a direct BT transfer from my PC but the BT signal is too weak to reach my second floor in the house, At least with the cheap USB BT dongle I used. If I find a better one I'll give that another try.
If anyone has a better way to acheive the same thing I'm all ears.
