Straight to the point:

For me to receive files from my Omnia i900 to my tx2:
blueman-applet works
bluetooth-applet doesn't

For me to send files to my Omnia from my tx2:
blueman-applet doesn't work
bluetooth-applet works

Why is this so? Aree these programs run by two completely different group? I bet collaboration would actually solve this problem.

A good point you raise there.
I can send files to my mobile phone fine, but I'm unable to receive them (atleast in Ubuntu 9.10 anyway).

In 9.04 (or was it 8.10?) it was possible to receive files by installing a package that sounded similar to gnome-obex-server (I could be a little wrong about the name of this, as I'm just relying on my memory).

I'll have to experiment to see if I can get them both working again.

Perhaps it's worthwhile submitting a bug report to both informing them of this issue (if they're already not familiar with this).
