yes, I've thought of it;
no, I haven't (yet) tried it.
there's some software which I haven't downloaded yet,
called k<something-or-other> (cannot recall the name
off-hand, sorry!), which claims to work with (among
other models) my phone, so I thought I would give
that a try first.
querying the phone does list obex as a supported
capability, which is why I was trying obexftp(1).
I assume, ATM, the problem is between the eyes and
the fingers, but this remains to be re-proven. ;-)
(there are definitely other reports of getting the
phone to work reasonably.)

yes, it's a Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR).
BTW, I've _not_ heard/read before the claim only
CSR works out-of-the-box. you could be correct,
but I know of no confirmation of this?
