--I wrote a blog on connecting via bluetooth and chan_mobile (backported
to 1.4)... and it was a royal pain to investigate and execute. Different
of the bluez stuff have different ways of doing the pairing. The last
me running the simple-agent as a third party to handle the server side
the pairing process. Yuck.

Anthing you can do to simplify the process will reduce the pain of
configuring chan_mobile!
