Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-bluetooth

My laptop is ASUS EeePC 1000H and my cellphone is Samsung E2152.

Send file problem step:
  1. Enable bluetooth for both device
  2. Click on the bluetooth applet icon -> [My Device's Name] -> Send files...
  3. Choose my cell phone, then press "Send to" button
  4. Choose any file
  5. Confirm the PIN number by pressing "Matches" button
But I failed to send that file, got the "Connection refused (111) error" instead.

  1) In the File Transfer window, the is no physical address specified after "From:"
  2) E2152's physical address in the File Transfer window and the PIN Confirmation window doesn't matches

Temporary solution for sending files:
  Click on the bluetooth applet icon and choose "Send files to device..." instead.

Receive file problem step:
  1. Enable bluetooth for both device
  2. Click on the bluetooth applet icon and then toggle Visible ON
  3. From the cellphone, choose any file to send via bluetooth
  4. Search for the laptop
My cellphone found nothing.

iTux, what kind of laptop/phone are you having issues with?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 to Droid Incredible phone (Android).
I've been sending files with Blueman to my phone just fine. It never worked with my old phone (G'zone Boulder), and last night I tried to send a large file and had some issues. But other than that it's been fine for me.

My phone is SonyEricsson K750i and my bt module is ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle. I use this in 9.10 and win and osx and it was just fine.

Changed in gnome-bluetooth (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
