    To save the photos to your device, as far as I know, you should tap the three-dot menu and tap save photo.

    I've made the same mistake before, so don't worry.

    Have you check Saved Pictures under albums? That's where they should be.

    Have you read this? Bluetooth FAQ | Windows Phone How-to (United Kingdom)

    I'm sorry I'm a daft one. Was in saved pictures, my apologies to all. Seriously thought I'd see a folder called Bluetooth. Still haven't escaped the Android way of finding things.

    sorry, I just got this Lumia 520 two days ago, its the first windows phone I have ever used or owned besides the ancient windows phone 6.5 standard from 2009 (its nothing like wp8) so go easy on me...i feel like such a dim wit

    Not sure what the "basic question" is, since OP got his answer. PDF file will probably be saved in the phone memory. Access it using the Office hub or Adobe Reader.

    The "basic question" he's asking is, Where does the unsupported formats transferred through Bluetooth stored? Even file types like zip are not seen anywhere in the phone or sd card...

    Hey everybody, on wp8, if you receive a file of a format which isn't supported natively by the OS (.docx, .pptx, .xlsx, .mp3, .jpg are native, with some more audio and image formats), then those files dont get stored ANYWHERE ! But, when you receive that file, you should open it immediately with some app, and then it is up to the app to store it. For example adobe reader will store incoming pdf once it opens them in its isolated storage.
    I use pocket file manager. Whenever i get a file which is non-native, i open it with PFM and then it stores it in its internal memory. Then i can easily cut it and paste it in my phone storage/sd card. Hope this helps ! :)

    (p.s. No way to recieve multiple non-native files simultaneously and to save them all. Zip them before receiving)

    Do you remember which music you received through Bluetooth? If yes, then it would be directly updated to your Xbox music/Mix radio. If you don't remember, you'll have to browse your music library to find them

    The same is the problem with Emails. Only images can be saved from an email attachment. Rest all files just open, no way to save.

    I once needed to print a pdf i got on my Email. Couldn't find it when i connected my phone over usb.

    When we open a pdf, the corresponding app makes a copy of it in isolated storage. Only that app can access this storage. You cant access this pdf via 'Files' app or over usb

    Yup, you are right, but still many files can be managed with it. Hope MS gives that option too

    Lol I also had problems locating music send via bluetooth. How do you find music send via bluetooth in your windows phone!!
    Go to MUSIC, then Go to Albums. Just under the word ALBUMS, there is a a word "showing" next to it, it shows you where the current music you are playing is coming from e.g. SD Card or On My Phone. CLICK, the option showing, and select a different source. You are then able to check your music in either phone storage or SC Card.
