I'd put in a 4 digit pin.
So I deleted the fido-0 name of the computer, with the phone. Then, using the phone: bluetooth > search; it found fido-0 and asked for a pin; put in a 6 digit pin and dialog box came up on the computer asking for pin; put in the same 6-digit pin and the phone now has fido-0 in its bluetooth menu.
When I try "Browse files" in the phone's bluetooth menu a bubble comes up on the computer saying 'connected' and giving the phone's correct name; but phone say: connecting failed, try again?
If I click the icon in the KDE 'tray' I get "protocol not supported" box, OK-ing this gives konqueror but it won't do anything with the mobile phone.
It's a Samsung E2100B phone.
EDIT: Hang on. Did you mean the computer should suggest a pin which I then put in the phone? No the phone was always used to instigate everything.
