    I have a problem with bluetooth connection to my laptop (with win 8 OS), the issue is absence of driver for the phone (RM-927). Neither kind of troubleshoot couldn't help me. Is there anybody who knows how to solve this point?

    Most likely your laptop. My Icon connected fine to my Surface Pro, running Win8.1. The only thing I can do though, is transfer files.

    Bluetooth doesn't have anything to do with drivers, so its not a driver problem (Wikipedia Bluetooth profiles). If you can't connect your phone and laptop with bluetooth, its a laptop problem. That said, it is very limited what Windows Phone will do over bluetooth with a computer, basically just allow you to send pictures, which is much faster of USB.

    What are you trying to do

    Yes USB is much faster. I tried sending files via Bluetooth, and it was extremely slow.

    Actually, you're just setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot. It's not using Bluetooth at all. And yes, it works really nice.

    I had this issue to. It would connect but frequently wouldn't go through and never remembered the device. You should make sure the driver for your laptops Bluetooth chip is the latest. If that doesn't work you might try changing it for a better Bluetooth.
