The phone manager shows an icon in the task manager? What task manager
are you talking about? I guess you mean the notification area of the
Have you bonded your phone with your computer, that means have you
exchanged a PIN? Is the phone listed in the "Bonded devices" list of the
bluetooth-applet's settings (bluetooth-settings)?
1. Make your computer visible and accept incoming connections.
2. Scan for devices from your phone.
3. Connect to your computer. When your phone asks for a PIN, you
can enter whatever you want.
4. The bluetooth-applet will start blinking. Click on it and enter
the same PIN there.

Sending files is something completely different from sending/receiving
SMS with phone manager. Sending files is done with bluetooth-send,

enable the "Share files over Bluetooth" option in
gnome-file-share-properties (that is System -> Settings -> Internet &
Network -> File Sharing).

forbidden sign in the icon of phone manager, and unable to send sms from it.
When i click browse phone with bluetooth manager which part of the phone it
will browse? because it doesn't show the files i have in my memory card. Do
