you need to make sure the phone is paired with your pc...

currently i'm using bluetooth applet 1.8 from bluez.org to first pair up the phone to the pc.
later when i use wvdial, the problem of the phone asking for passphrase is gone...


prior to using the current bluez gui (i was on eeeXubuntu before)
i was able to set the passphrase manually in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf (i wasnt able to get the below method to work in Fedora10)

u can edit the hcid.conf

options {
# Automatically initialize new devices
autoinit yes;

# Security Manager mode
# none - Security manager disabled
# auto - Use local PIN for incoming connections
# user - Always ask user for a PIN
#
security auto;

# Pairing mode
# none - Pairing disabled
# multi - Allow pairing with already paired devices
# once - Pair once and deny successive attempts
pairing multi;

# Default PIN code for incoming connections
passkey "5678";
}
