When successfully paired I am able to query the Azio device from my LG440G. I see the following supported services:

Dial up networking
File Transfer
Object push
Advanced audio distribution
AV remote control

Depending upon each environment, one way or another I am able to pull or copy files from the LG440G. I should be able to push files from the phone but I am only partially successful.

Using a terminal and obexfs is doable for the technical person, but I don't expect non technical users to embrace that method.

Yeah, I know, that is a lot of story telling to answer your original question. Yet my answer seems to be, "That depends." I had mixed results in four different desktop environments. Pushing files from the phone does not always succeed. All I can say at this point is a person should always be able to pull or push files supporting that feature, but that is not the case.

Conclusion? This process is nonsense. Very frustrating. A user should not have to become a computer science major to make this work. That is supposed to be the job of the computer science majors. Browsing the web indicates Bluetooth is broken one way or another on Linux systems. My experience today confirms that hit or miss throw of the darts. I accept that the LG235C does not support many Bluetooth features, but I should have had no problems with the LG440G. In this day and age of computers and cell phones, there should be a simple point-and-click way to push/pull files. Sadly, no wonder people still flock to Apple and Microsoft.

Oh, yes, I did boot into a Windows XP system using the Azio. I was able to push and pull files to the LG440G. The usual story: everything just worked.

I hope this information helps you connect your LG440G to your computer!

I had been having trouble also connecting the LG440G, 3 minute access didn't help on the LG.

I gots Linux Mint 17 on a dell d630 running 32 bit wit a bluetooth module installed internally.

Had trouble pairing them up, until I found blueproximity in the software manager of Mint.

I mean the PC would see the phone, the phone would see the PC, with the cinnamon-bluetooth software that was pre installed
on Mint, I could download from PC to phone but not the other way. I downloaded a 555 timer nomograph for my wallpaper on the LG440G phone. Going the other way it would not communicate, maybe 3 minute timer timed out.

Flashback to blueproximity: it had a place to put in the phone bluetooth, MAC addy, in their gui. I went back to the phone file system and got it to send a pix via bluetooth.

Needless to say I did reset the 3 minute timer on the LG440G before attempting another file transfer

I didn't see the pop up window to accept the download, so download failed.
Trying again I got it to accept, that pop up is only there for like 2 seconds

Google sent me here, didn't see this, is a slackware thread
