If you want to go tried and tested way then install package
gnome-bluetooth, start the obex server from Accessories menu and then
send files from phone to PC.

If you want to try more modern but a bit unstable method then install
package gnome-vfs-obexftp, logout and login and then enter obex:// in
nautilus bar. Then you can browse your phone and copy files to-fro.

Don't ask why - the reason is the same.
