    I've encountered this same problem. Only since upgrading to Leopard however. Everything else works fine (iSync for example). I'm guessing something changed in the way bluetooth incoming connections are handled?

    you guys should check this out. there is a new 'bluetooth sharing' to tick in preferences / sharing. maybe that will help. good luck.

    That setting doesn't change anything. On my MBP, and my partner on her MB, have this same problem with both our cell phones.

    my bluetooth on my Powerbook G4 was working fine before upgrading to Leopard :-s

    Other mates who have also upgraded are also having problems since upgrading. Can longer connect to my phone and transfer content from phone to laptop. Even sending content to phone no longer works.
