Bug Description

Transferring files from many Android devices fail using Nautilus. Command line obexftp utilities work.

I'm not sure if this is an issue with gvfs, nautilus, or bluez.

Steps:
1. log into desktop
2. pair phone with laptop
3. click bluetooth applet and select browse files on device
4. copy file from harddrive in nautilus and paste it in phone in nautilus

Expected results: file is transfered

Actual results: files is not transfered

Not sure this is valid. Most Android devices don'tsupport OBEX out of the box. When I installed an OBEX server on the phone such as "Bluetooth File Transfer" from the app store, this seems to work.

Marking incomplete.
