I am running 8.1 in 7 style and don't know if that makes any difference but cannot see why it should.

As for pairing I have three devices paired my car, one called Mums phone whatever that is?? and Johns-PC on the phone itself nothing on the machine The phone in the car doesn't work anyway so maybe I have a dud phone??
John, are you sure you have Bluetooth enabled in bios and the drivers installed in the OS?

Steve I didn't know it would be in BIOS to be honest I shall have to get in there and see when I have a minute.

To be honest the whole thing is shambolic when it should just be a matter of turning the phone and computer on connecting with a cable or this wretched blu tooth and away one goes.

I agree John. I didn't have any problems with my Galaxy 4, once I used a better cable. As soon as I hooked it up, the computer recognized it and installed drivers. I guess it really isn't quite right as the computer sees it as a DVD drive. But it makes little difference, as I can still open it up and transfer what I want to back and forth.

Well have tried a different cable and tethered it paired it - whatever but it still will not show as an attached drive. So like the Telstra people in town said maybe something wrong with the phone itself. suppose this means I get another and possibly better phone.
It is all very frustrating as I can connect via Blu tooth in the car but this laptop no way.

Shall be at home tomorrow and may try the main machine if it doesn't work then it is just got to be the phone.

Windows Phone 7 or Android
I am looking at getting a smartphone and am considering either Windows Phone 7 because of Xbox Live integration. Or Android because of customizability. iOS is not an option.
