You know, now that you mention it, I remember that I had to upgrade to a 
Fedora package even to get the discovery stuff and/or connection *from* 
the computer to work (this is something I set up a year or so ago.) I 
installed only bluez-gnome earlier, though, but now I've upgraded the 
other packages, too, so I have the same versions as you. Unfortunately, 
there is still no luck sending from the phone - the behaviour is still 
the same.

Another clue, though: If do the Bluetooth setup in a slightly different 
way on the phone, I get the following messages:

Getting service list...
Service not found

I suppose this may be the root of the problem, i.e. that the phone 
expects the computer to publish a list of services, and the GNOME 
bluetooth stuff doesn't.
