I have also turned on bluetooth on lumia and checked for "send/share" option in both "Music" and "Music+Video" Apps.
Let me know if you have updated your os to amber ? or how did you get that option?

In spite of reading so many cons, I have bought this mobile. Now I deeply regret it.
I'm a web developer and programmer. after using this phone for 3 days, here are the in depth cons which may not have mentioned by others in addition to already mentioned cons by other users.
1. OS still in developing stage.
2. No standard features like File Manager, Equalizer, Bluetooth File Sharing, Customization, themes, etc., You can only change colors and size of icons.
3. You cannot transfer files from PC to Phone via Bluetooth. You must always have USB cord. Else, You may have to use WIFI or your INTERNET DATA.
4. You can't install apps offline. You can copy the xap files to sd card but for installation, you must wait atleast 1 hour to see the file in store and to install it, you must connect to internet for verification by microsoft.
5. Same volume control for all. Phone call, Music player, Games., all have only 1 volume control. which means if you play song in 3 point volume, your phone will also ring in 3 point volume.
6. You must convert video files to compatible format. It doesn't play FLV, MKV, MPG, DAT, etc., files. Only AVI, WMV and other windows media format. The files are converted automatically during transfer. but it's still a major con.
All it's specifications except operating system.
Opinion: As it's still in developing stage, the phone doesn't have enough features. It may take loooong time for OS become fully featured.
If you are experienced with already developed os like symbian, asha and android, YOU WILL HATE AND REGRET IT.
You can get decent android in this price range - Rs.10,000/- I'm returning this phone.
mayur , 23 Aug 2013is this a good phone for a teenager should I go for it or any other android phone below 10k...?I wouldn't give comment if it is looks stylish, cool or trend, etc. Just find your needs, do you need file manager? Much more games? Notification center works very good? If yes, go for Android. While if you don't need file manager, don't care many apps or games, would like good hardware but low price and fast performance, you can buy Lumia 520.

1. File manager?
2. Can... more1. No file manager, Windows Phone is like iPhone
2. No, you can't. Wallpaper can be applied for lockscreen
3. About 4,7 GB
4. No, equalizer
5. No, there isn't
6. Good, but better use 3G. I always set 3G for my Lumia
Nokia pls give equalizer for this phone. I dont want dolby surround. Its basic feature for phones. L520 is top selling phone. Its budget phone I accept but equalizer must & basic for phones. Pls understand equalizer is not determind Lumia 620,720 and 520 sales. Its worst...worst....
