I'm using Sun's JDS, and simply created these devices with:

mknod /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
mknod /dev/rfcomm1 c 216 1
mknod /dev/rfcomm2 c 216 2
mknod /dev/rfcomm3 c 216 3
mknod /dev/rfcomm4 c 216 4

etc.  They then work fine =O)

The only problem I'm having with all this, actually, is that
gnome-bluetooth-manager fails because controller.Controller() doesn't
appear to exist at line 77.  I'm not a Python coder, so this is a bit
opaque to me - I've seen someone else asked about this here already and
got no response.  I figure it's due to a version of Python or some other
part mismatching.  But a constructor not existing?  The same sytax works
fine for the Iconlist which seems to be defined in the same way, too.
=O(  Or because gnome-bluetooth-manager just isn't supposed to work yet?

Anyway, I have 2 SonyEricssons - a P800 and a T630 - and both work as
expected .  I've added Multisync and leif and some of my own hacks, and
with the OBEX code and Gnome integration, it all looks great - thanks

If someone told me it wasn't "fashionable" to talk about freedom, I
think I'd just have to look him square in the eye and say, "Okay, YOU
TELL ME what's `fashionable'."  But he won't.  And you know why? 
Because you can't ask someone what's fashionable in a smart-alecky way
like that.  You have to be friendly and say, "By the way, what's
