    Hi IT guru's,

    I need help:blush:

    I got a new nokia lumia, but I can't connect it to my PC, I tried downloading the app from zune.com, but the pc/windows software is not compatabile, I think I need a new version, but I can't send them via bluetooth, as the phone does not have an option to send via bluetooth.

    Any help would be great

    I think that may be the only option, I have, I will IT support tommorrow and ask them, then hopefully set up the email from phone,

    I have download it, but it wont install, as the windows I am running is not compatable, I am running windows XP 5.1 professional, but zune you need windows 7.

    I have tried the skytrack, but then on the internet, it is blocked by our server, so I can't access skytrack from the PC.

    I must it is a lakka phone, and unbeliveable, the only thing is it is not compatable with any other nokia suites, it looks like all the new nokias are going to run through zune. I saw alot of complaints with people running the previous suites, not being able to transfer the applications.

    Sorry its been a while since I used xp.
    Try go to your control panel and look for system or system properties.
    I will try find a better link, you should also be able to run the update( if you don't have it) from windows update. The reason I am suggesting this is I checked on zunes site and they say you need xp service pack 3 to run it.

    @magman how you finding the phone. You need to get Zune installed Nokia released a massive update that fixed a lot of the little jiggly things including the battery life.

    Let me know I am interested in how it is.

    Thanks bud, I will phone our IT tech support at headoffice tommorow, and ask them if I can download it,

    I really like it, you must see even the macro photo's I have taken with it of the tank, I find it easier searching masa than the laptop, I showed it to a mate today with the N8, and he reckons it is leagues ahead of the N8,

    I did see a few complaints though on the net, about people not being able to transfer data/contacts/apps etc from previous nokia versions, as it appears that Nokia has changed all this.

    Also there is a few apps that run in the background, so you have to turn off the internet connections when you not using it, but I spent some time reading the manual this evening, and really personalised the phone, best bet is to download and read the manual:blush:, much happier with it though

    If only I could access the zune app on my laptop:(, as it appears you can only load or run anything through zune.

    Yes that's right everything is done via Zune, think of it like iTunes for the iCrap or Kies for the Samsung Android. It's a great phone well built and once you use the Windows Phone 7.5 interface you won't go back to the other slosh that is out there.

    Make sure you get Zune on some machine so you can update it, there is a nice update for Nokia maps and drive too. Nokia music allows you to search for local music ;)

    Oh and the other thing is once you get market place setup to buy apps, look for boardExpress it's what I use for forums and it's a great forum app.

    no bud, it does have blue tooth, but you can't send pics by blue tooth, or receive by bluetooth, the whole system relies on zune, there is also skytrack, where you can upload the pics to, but our server blocks it as a social site
