Share by Bluetooth issue

I'm having a problem when attempting to share files via Bluetooth on my 920. It has been like this since day 1 but I was hoping an update would fix it but after installing gdr2 and Amber, the problem is still present.

If I choose to share a file and then select Bluetooth, it takes me to the 'Choose Bluetooth Device' page but I'm unable to scroll down the list. I can only see the names of the first 7 devices, the 8th device name is only partially visible as it's at the bottom of the screen. With a little careful finger placement, I can choose the 8th item but any device below that is inaccessible. When the 'Choose Bluetooth Device' page initially loads, a scroll bar briefly appears on the right hand side but it's just not possible to scroll downwards.

Is anyone else having this problem, more importantly, are there any fixes/workarounds please?

You need to first pair the target device using your bluetooth settings, then it'll show up on top :), if you already have a bunch of devices paired, delete some.

Hmm that seems a bit backwards as the devices are already paired. I can't be the only person in the world to pair my phone with more than 8 other devices. It should be possible just to scroll to and select any device on the list.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will try re-pairing to see if that helps :)

I bet there are 34.56 million other people like you ;), I've faced the problem and found that the solution I posted is 1 way of sorting it :)

I think you can try to scroll near the right side of the screen, where the scroll bar normally appear, instead of scrolling at the center of the screen.
