I have noticed again, that my bluetooth in my device is useless! With Jolla i can reach my PC but cannot transfer obvious, make me error every time and with PC I can't see my Jolla! PC look at all bluetooth device but my Jolla remain hidden (in settings visible is always set to ON). So bluetooth doesn't work and is completely useless.

Well Bluetooth does work on the Jolla and quite well. although a few profiles are missing. It looks like you either have an application causing Bluetooth issues, or there is a hardware fault that needs attention.

Have you tried a full phone re-start. Switch off and remove battery for 10 mins?

If it is still faulty then I would contact Jolla care directly.

does your PC work with other devices? Have you ever tried it, before?

@dsilveira Yes my N9 is working everywhere I tried! Now if I am in office and I haven't USB cable, to bring photos from Jolla I have to use Dropbox because bluetooth doesn't work! But with my VAIO at home bluetooth works!

@bockersjv the problem doesn't resolve by re-start and take out battery! the problem persist every time in every day I can try to use bluetooth transfer.

so it works at home and not at the office? That seems to be a little more than useless! Buggy maybe

Same situation for me: since the beggining, I cannot browse the content of the Jolla despite I reinstalled BT drivers. Tried on 2 windows computer.

I can send/receive a single file, though, So I wouldn't say BT is useless but problems exists.

These are different bluetooth profiles! Sending/receiving a single file is OPP (Object Push Profile), while being able to browse the device is OBEX (Object Exchange). So far, the Jolla only supports OPP for files.

There are also other profiles e.g A2DP for audio streaming to headphones or HID (Human Interface Device Profile) for connecting keyboards or other input devices. HID was announced to ship with one of the next updates.

For more information about Bluetooth profiles you might want to check Wikipedia or the Web in general. =:o)
