If it's not a nokia it might support both SynchML and OBEXftp in which case
use the latter under linux. I spent most of the weekend digging around for
SynchML support under linux and couldn't find any. Of course that doesn't mean
it doesn't exist. There is a simple program called obexserver under linux that
allows you to use OBEXpush to send files from your mobile to the computer but
I couldn't get it to compile and I get the impression that no-one has looked
at it in quite a while.

On a happier note Bluetooth worked pretty much out of the box on my fedora 3t1
box. kdebluetooth really worked out of the box, allows you to browse your
bluetooth devices in konqueror.
