Exclamation unable to connect bluetooth dongle to phone

hi all,

i have connected a bluetooth dongle to my laptop (with debian etch). the gnome BT manager is detecting it and working fine.
gives out the following:

Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.8
[drm] Initialized drm 1.0.1 20051102
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:02.0[A] -> Link [LNKA] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
[drm] Initialized i915 1.5.0 20060119 on minor 0
[drm] Initialized i915 1.5.0 20060119 on minor 1
usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Bluetooth: HCI USB driver ver 2.9
usbcore: registered new driver hci_usb

i am also able to pair the dongle with my phone (nokia ngage)

but, when i try to connect it with my phone, the connection is refused.

bluetooth handsfree profile not supported..!

can anyone throw some light on wat could be the reason...?

Check what profile you are using in your phone.
