    Unable to use bluetooth in Nokia lumia 800 to connect with other mobile

    I purchased a second hand Nokia Lumia 800 mobile. I don't have any issue related to its working but I am facing some issues which is related to its bluetooth. Bluetooth is able to search other devices but when I try to connect it with other devices then it flashes an error message "Not supported". Would I be able to use my bluetooth to connect with other devices?

    You are not the only one who is facing this issue. Actually Nokia Lumia 800 comes with a bluetooth which has only Audio and Headset profiles which means you can only your bluetooth to hear Audio sound using wireless headset. It's bluetooth profile doesn't have the ability to connect two devices. However you can use WiFi tethering facility to share internet connection with others.

    Hi,

    The Bluetooth feature in Nokia Lumia 800 is somewhat curtailed and partial.

    Headset can be connected through bluetooth but two devices can`t be connected using the technology,

    It`s a handicap, true but you can`t do anything.

    Other means like WiFi must be used to do the pairing between two devices.

    Thanks.
