Debian Lenny Bluetooth

Can anyone talk me through how to pair my SE K800i with Debian Lenny?

The computer does have Bluetooth - works perfectly on Windows.

It used to work perfectly on Debian Etch under KDE. But I removed KDE, installed Gnome, then upgraded to Lenny, and now I just can't figure it out.

I'm able to send a file from the computer to the phone by using

$: gnome-obex-send filename

$: hcitool scan
shows the phone as a bluetooth device

However, I will only ever want to send files the other way i.e. from the phone to the computer, and when I try to add a new device or initiate file sending from the phone, it just says No Bluetooth Devices Found.
