Thanks, yes I have Windows 8.1. How do I find "post 26" that you mention, is it in this thread? I did a Function Win and tried again to connect. The Nokia reported the keyboard was already "paired" and when I clicked on the listing the phone worked for a couple seconds then indicated "connected" then the connection was dropped no more than 10 seconds later. I third a few times. I can test to see how the connection works with my Fire, but my recollection is the connection to a paired device is automatically connected if it is "on" no need to force the keyboard into a "discovery" state. Not sure how one gets out of the discovery state - I think the keyboard is not operational when in the discovery state, i.e., the LED is blinking. I'll do more searches on the web, seems a string along the lines "connecting keyboard to Nokia 8.1 phone" I can add Anker too, but will keep the search broad initially.
