it will displays the bluetooth phone name and MAC address

Scanning …

Step 2:
hidd –connect=00:1F:CC:25:EA:C5

it will now connect to the bluetooth phone

$ su
[root at amachu amachu]# sudo hidd –connect=00:1F:CC:25:EA:C5
Connected to 00:1F:CC:25:EA:C5 on channel 2
Press CTRL-C for hangup

Step 3:

Now open File Browser and type the following path in address bar,
obex://[MAC address]

now the bluetooth phone's memory can be accessible…..
