    Is this possible in WP? I cannot even connect my phone to my windows 7 pc via bluetooth?

    Is there anyway to transfer files wirelessly on windows phone? (ex: photos)

    I wish there was a way to create a direct link between the phone and PC. Old PDAs can do it. Why not smartphones? :(

    When smartphone OS companies have partnerships with content providers, that's when you say goodbye to the options for distributing content from device to device. Apple and Microsoft have a much easier time making deals for content for iTunes and Zune, respectively, if they can show the content is secure.

    They do, however, allow you to create a direct link via USB, no?

    For anyone that feels this is important, vote for it here: Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone. There is a Bluetooth file transfer request near the top of the list.

    It is my content though. Not like I want a utorrent client on my phone. I want to be able to stream my media from my computer to my phone. No idea why that is as difficult as all mobile products make it. Need a dynamic DNS to point to my computer but then need 3rd party software for the server, then an app that can read the transcodes from that 3rd party server software, then just hope that all your settings are correct and it actually works. Its 2012 almost and no desktop OS can do this yet. I think WHS 2011 is supposed to be able to stream over the web easier than WHS ver.1 but I do not have that yet.

    A little off topic but problem is the same. My content is restricted. Its very possible to allow bluetooth transfers. I believe the 2.1 can do it so its software restricted not protocol problems.
