If Bluetooth is your only option, just stop now.  Bluetooth support in
Ubuntu is almost non-existent.  You can connect a phone.  You can send
SMS messages through it.  You can, with enough hassle, make Multisync
sort of work with it and even have one file at a time sent from your
phone to the computer.  The other direction?  Still not possible with
any tools I've been able to find.

As for other devices: my Bluetooth mouse never worked ever, my Bluetooth
headset ditto.  The framework is present for all that stuff, but the
part that actually supplies functionality isn't there.
