Hi All,

I'm using Feisty (Ubuntu) and trying to hack a script together to run  
with my phone via bluetooth (more details at a later date... ;)  
however I'm having real issues pairing the devices.

The phone is a K750i and the BT device is a USB Dongle that has worked  
flawlessly in the past.

I can do an OBEX push from the PC to the phone and I can scan using  
hcitool, however as soon as I do an hcitool cc MACADDR followed by a  
hcitool auth MACADDR it fails either saying that "the device is not  
connected" or that there is an error with HCITool (i'm not in front of  
my home PC right now, so I caouldnm't give the exact text... :( )

The phone shows that there is an attempt to connect, however it cust  
off almost immediately.

Any help welcome as this is really starting to get to me!
