Bluetooth headset as DVD?

I have been trying to get my bluetooth headset to work on Kubuntu (ultimately for skype). KbluetoothD recognizes the device, but when I click to open Konqueror it shows up with a DVD icon. When I click on the icon, instead of prompting me for a pin as described here:

I just get asked what I want to open it with. When I click through, I end up looking at a folder named .moreservices and get a message that the device is not connected properly. What am I missing?

Did you follow the instructions, on the page you linked, completely - step by step? If you did, where exactly did this problem occur (which step)? Have you got the appropriate software on board?
