I can't connect with my Nokia phone via Bluetooth. It's already added to devices..I can't browse it, nor send files. On ubuntu before, there wasn't problem. What should I do? Thanks in advance.

Simply download Blueman from the Ubuntu Software Manager. Once Blueman installed right-click your device within Blueman and trust it. Will work great!

You can send/receive after check Receives files in personal sharing preferences but for browsing I dunno, I can't browse too.

Browsing the Android device from your Ubuntu is still not working. You may want to opt in this Launchpad bug report – J. Austin Rodriguez Oct 6 '12 at 1:24

For me, I frequently use blueman (the Bluetooth Manager), and yes you can install it from the command line:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install blueman

Wait for the installation to finish, and you can use the software as you like. As long as I'm using the software, I have no problems with receiving from the Bluetooth file transfer but yes, I did have problems if I want to transfer files from PC to my mobile phone.
