Get Obextools. I managed to get a few of the other tools like Kmobiletools working with the phone but they couldn't actually do a while lot.
Add the following to your apt sources.list
#Obex/ Mobile Phone stuff
deb http://www.stud.uni-karlsruhe.de/~ubq7/debian extra main
deb-src http://www.stud.uni-karlsruhe.de/~ubq7/debian extra main
Then run apt-get and install the following:
apt-get install tcllib tablelist bwidgets obextool
You may have to get tablelist separately. I got my copy from the ubuntu forums as a .deb package and installed it separately.
Now run obextools:
obextool --obexcmd "obexftp -u 1"
I had to run this as root for reasons that are beyond me. I guess its probably some sort of group permission thing for my user account. But I had accessed the obexftp fine using the command line, so I'm not entirely sure.
Anyway its working now - so that I can download pictures from the phone. Woo hoo.
