Question Mobile Phone Connecting and Flashing

I've been trying to get Gnokii to connect to my mobile phone via a serial port and an MBUS cable.
I have tried both ttyS0 and ttyS1 (any thing higher than that just immediately gives an error) BUT they both just sit there and finally timeout. Is there any easy way to test which port my serial port is? (I only have one)
I did try to use both IR and bluetooth as well however all the bluetooth howto's say to get the phone to attempt to connect to the PC. the Nokia 6310i doesn't have this option so I'm stuck with that as well.

Finally I was wondering if it was possible to flash upgrade mobile phone handsets under linux. If so what software to use and some info on how to use it would be wonderful.
Thanks alot in advance for any help.
