Connect to Motorola bluetooth phone

I am trying to find some linux app that would allow me to connect to my bluetooth phone to sync the data. It is not a PDA but it would be nice to be able to sync the address book and such with my desktop and transfer some files. Anyone have success with this?

which motorola phone do you have??
what bluetooth device do you have on your computer??
i have a motorola V600 and am using a D-Link DBT-120 USB bluetooth device.
running fedora core 3

i found this to be a good resource:
but it only seems to work with nokia phones.

to test your bluetooth device on your computer use:
you must be su - user in order to run this command. mine gives:

hci0: Type: USB
BD Address: 00:0F:3D:0B:F3:36 ACL MTU: 192:8 SCO MTU: 64:8
RX bytes:669 acl:7 sco:0 events:25 errors:0
TX bytes:298 acl:7 sco:0 commands:12 errors:0

to activate the device use:
hciconfig hci0 up

to name the device use:
hciconfig hci0 name foo

to find other bluetooth devices use:
hcitool scan

make sure that your motorola phone is set to "find me" in settings or it will not be found. this should give you an address for the device in my case the address is 00:0A:28:E7:99:64

you should try and ping this address with:
l2ping 00:0A:28:E7:99:64

this is as far as i've gotten but would love to work it out with some help.
