pairing my phone


Can someone help me pair my mobile phone so I can get some service, my mac address to the phone is 18:3b:d2:0c:f7:31, and the bluetooth address is 18:3b:d2:0b:0e:ea.The phone is a motorola wx445, I have backtrack linux 4 but it seems that the hcitool has been deleted or removed I tried several times and it didn't work. So I was wondering if someone with a linux workstation with bluetooth can pair the phone for me so I could get some telephone service, thanks a lot.


Peter

why on earth are you broadcasting your phone number to the world? I hope this is actually a joke and if someone calls that they get a George Bush impersonator or something.

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. Thread http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6/#post4492419 has been closed.

BTW, edit your OP and remove the addresses. This is for your safety. The addresses are not needed to help resolve the issue at this point. You are just asking for trouble by posting this information.

I'm have a similar issue, except I'm not sure I'm in the right place....
Devices: LG Optimus T(P509) + HP G60 Laptop + Bluetooth Dongle
Laptop OS: Ubuntu 11.04
Android OS: Buudoh V2 (Custom)
I can 'locate' my P509 via laptop, but when trying to pair the P509 an error is displayed: "com.android.settings" or something to that effect.

The P509 will pair with other devices, just not this one.
Is this something I can change with Ubuntu, or is this NEW dongle the issue?

EDIT: By the way, I did try fixing the permission with two different methods:
Android Terminal Emulator: #fix_permissions
ROM Manager: "Fix Permissions"...which indicated a sound resolution...but same issue with bluetooth.

The duplicate post in <Linux-General> has been closed. So has the one in <Linux-Networking>. This is now the correct thread.

Well, I found the solution to this after all: It was the Android OS that I chose. Switched to Cyanogenmod 7 ... all is well. Thanks anyway.
