So, far...

I installed Gnokii...
I connect the DKU-5 cable and find out that FC3 recognize it:

Jan 26 21:58:05 dc9f8d61d kernel: ohci_hcd 0000:00:02.0: wakeup
Jan 26 21:58:05 dc9f8d61d kernel: usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3
Jan 26 21:58:05 dc9f8d61d kernel: pl2303 2-2:1.0: PL-2303 converter detected
Jan 26 21:58:05 dc9f8d61d kernel: usb 2-2: PL-2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
So I configured .gnokiirc:

port = /dev/ttyUSB0 #<--------- I ONLY CHANGED THIS AND
model = 6210 #<---------- THIS
initlength = default
connection = serial
bindir = /usr/sbin

use_locking = yes
serial_baudrate = 19200

smsc_timeout = 10
TELEPHONE = 12345678
debug = off
rlpdebug = off
xdebug = off
But still no complete luck... when I run gnokii or xgonkii I see that my phone turn on the lights, but I still can't into it.

I am also trying to get the 6225 working. I've tried a few things so far and only some small success.

Using a usb IrDA piece of hardware FC3 managed to detect and install the driver:

% dmesg
pl2303 3-1:1.0: PL-2303 converter detected
usb 3-1: PL-2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0

I then manually installed the irda module:
% /sbin/modprobe irda

And then did:
% irdadump
12:20:23.408060 xid:cmd ffffffff < 000017c4 S=6 s=0 (14)
12:20:23.507483 xid:cmd ffffffff < 000017c4 S=6 s=1 (14)

10 packets received by filter

So now the phone seems to be available I need to try doing something - I am currently searching for some IrOBEX utils to see if I can get anything actually happening.

Anyone else had any successes?

Well I guess I'm lucky I bought a sony ericsson. I'm connected via that phone right now, writing this message The bluetooth link worked so exceptionally fine that I never bothered with the USB cable or IR link. I don't know about sending files though, my Nautilus file manager only has bluetooth file send (which seem to work fine), not irda, but maybe there is some additional plugin.
Anyway, can you talk to it using e.g. minicom? Try issuing some AT commands. To establish a connection, use kppp and enter the phone number *99# and use any user name and password (I think this applies to all GPRS/3G operators, but I've only had experience with three, and only in Sweden). That should be it.
