It doesn't suppport bluetooth file transfer but i wouldn't call it a massive problem. What percentage of people, with phones that support this, actually use it?

I remember about 4 years ago, thinking Bluetooth was the best thing ever. I havent turned it on once on my Lumia, and I'm almost certain I never turned it on on my Optimus 7. Its funny how things change.

On that note, remember Infrared?

I use that every day. I'm so annoyed that my new phone doesn't support it... i bet android does. All my friends transfer files via infrared. Any phone that doesn't support infrared transfer sucks!

I use bluetooth all the time though for the car, if infrared worked from my pocket i'd never use bluetooth.

On a real topic... anyone have any news on white lumia 800 simfree?

A lot of things chnage in communications. Most of my files are in the cloud today. All my pics are in the SkyDrive. I send pics and files through email.

I never really used Bluetooth for file sending on my sensation. There's not much point anymore.

The only thing I still use it for is hands free in the car which I love. When I was using my sensation it was the thing I missed the most from my windows phone.

Vlingo couldn't come close to it.

white Lumia

I saw the white lumia 800 display models yesterday and they look cheap and tacky. They have a seam down the side which means they aren't made the same as a real lumia.

Do the real while lumia's look as bad as these tacky display models?

Is it only available in white on Meteor/eMobile in Ireland? The other networks only appear to have black.....

Yes, which is a crying shame.

You can buy pink and blue on amazon.de. They cost about €400, which is less than what you pay for a credit version here in black locked to one network so it is a good deal. They are sim-free, unbranded and will take any sim. They get here in about 2 days so not a long wait by any means. I have the pink one, I can honestly say it's absolutely stunning, the photos don't do justice to it. It comes with a free cover in pink also. Highly recommend it.

Would be nice to get the bulk of the issues sorted after 3 1/2 months of ownership, way too long imo...

Did you figure it out? Tap the number on top of the message and then click the little 'floppy disk' icon at the bottom to save.
