    I have a Surface RT and an HTC 8X, and I can't seem to get the two to connect via Bluetooth. They can discover each other just fine, but then they can't connect. They'll start to connect, but then all of the sudden it just stops and nothing happens. I'm not sure if this is a problem with my Surface or my 8X. Has anyone else experienced this?

    My 920 does the same thing with my Surface. Its probably because our WP's BT are very limited in services. We can only connect to use it for voice and play music from.

    Ah, that makes sense. I had a feeling it was the WP8 and not the RT...thanks for confirming.

    I'm sorry but that is not correct. Windows Phone 8 now has Bluetooth file transfer.

    It's by design that the Bluetooth connection will not stay actively connected. But if the 2 devices are paired properly, then when a file is transferred, you will see the notification. I explain it here how the devices connect

    I had this same issue until I figured out the file has to be pushed to the device.

    Having same problem connecting to my Beats Pill...I got it to connect once but that was it. I just started using the headphone jack until I can figure out something with the bluetooth.
