  I had the same problem with an ericsson T69i. Which was solved by changing
  the bluetooth device class of my computer. This can be done by  changing
  ``class 0x100'' into ``class 0x100100'' in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf (Thus
  adding Object transfer service class).

You will never amount to much.
