Hi.
I'm trying KBluetooth4. I'm able to connect mobile phone Sony Ericsson K530i, even, remote control of desktop via mobile phone works for me great. But Nokia mobile phones(6120 and 5310 Xpress Music) have troubles.
KBluetooth4-devicemanager picks up both Nokia phones, but then Bluetooth Device Manager tells me "Sorry your Bluetooth Device does not support input Service".
Any help, work around, or comments are appreciated.

I have this problem with my LG phone as well.

The only way I've been able to get bluetooth to work with either my Nokia 5310 xpress music or my Sony bluetooth headphones was to install and use Gnome-bluetooth.

I tried for several days to get kdebluetooth4 to work but to no avail. Gnome-bluetooth worked straight away.

kbluetooth4 gives me the same error with my new Android phone, a Sprint HTC Hero.

KBluetooth only supports Input and Audio devices at this stage unfortunately.

well, it failed to work with my nokia bluetooth headset as well. The overall support of external devices like mobiles is terrible in kde4. I do not believe anymore it is ever going to improve.

Note that for Audio devices to be supported, you need to be using the latest version of KBluetooth. The support is the most seamless when you use Pulseaudio, as it will automatically detect the paired bluetooth headset.

ALSA configuration has to be done manually I believe.
