    Hi,

    we are trying to connect my Lumia 920 and my wife's Lumia 800 over bluetooth (for the first time) . Bluetooth is active on both phones. Both phones can find each other but when we select "Tap To Connect" it takes few seconds and it says Could Not Be Connected

    Any idea why and what we we should do to get 2 Lumia phones connected?

    Many Thanks

    I don't think this is supported by WP7

    Edit: If the Lumia 800 has WP7.8 you could try the Nokia application "Bluetooth Share" which may do what you want

    What are you trying to accomplish between the two phones? Exchange data (pics, music)?

    As I understand it, this is possible only if both phones are running WP8. So the Lumia 920 has this capability, but the 800 does not.

    However as I mentioned, the Nokia Bluetooth Share app may do what you want. As Curtieson says, would be useful to know what you are trying to accomplish here...

    I've tried to connect my Lumia 920 and Lumia 800 (via Nokia's BT file sharing app) and it works.

    The way it works is that once the connection is done, then it will disconnect. Try to send a picture over via BT app on the Lumia 800 to the Lumia 920. You will get a prompt about an incoming file prompt on the Lumia 920 and when you accept, it will connect automatically. Try to share a picture via BT on your Lumia 920 and you can share it to your Lumia 800.

    Where can I get this Nokia's BT file sharing app? Shall I look for "Nokia BT" in app store with both phones?

    Can you resize the tiles on your start screen or are they all one size? (When you click and hold on one, is there a pin in the top right and an arrow in the lower right?)

    Else, go Settings -> About and there is a line that says "Software"

    You only need Nokia's Bluetooth Share app on the Lumia 800 after upgrading to 7.8. Lumia 920 does not need the app because BT share is built in on WP8

    Appears you have your answer already, but yes, the 800 has WP7.8 already.

    Make me feel like an old man...

    Ohhhh, back in my day...we had Windows Phone 7.0...we didn't even have copy or paste! You youngin's have it so easy with your different sized tiles and and everything.

    [We didn't get Copy/Paste on the phone until WP7.5]
