Some research has shown that in Windows using pcsuite you can in fact 
see the different menus and locations on the phone from the PC and a 
simple drag and drop to the "Memory Card" icon solves the problem.  No 
adjustment is needed on the phone to achieve this.  Also there is a tool 
called obexftp/obextool for linux that has just implemented this 
functionality for the Nokia 6230 apparently but is seriously bleeding 
edge (i,e. you have to patch and pray).  Adding this functionality to 
gnome-bluetooth would be really really useful IMHO.
