I also am interested in Bluetooth on a 6310, particularly uploading MIDlets.
Having experiemented a bit using Hyperterminal, though, it seems that going
a DLR-9 cable, PC Suite uses AT*NOKIAFBUS to enable FBUS, but this command
is not valid with BT. Most of the regular GSM commands seem to work, but I'm
more interested in uploading apps.

This is for compatibility only ;-) Nokia seems to restrict the AT*NOKIAFBUS to the cable only (on a 6210 with blutooth connectivity pack it still worked), so you must use the corresponding WinSock commands (as far as I have seen there is already a bluetooth.c file in Gnokii - so this is the place where you have to start from).

Anyway, I'm also keen to test Bluetooth stuff, and also see if there is any
way around this restriction (it's possible with PC Suite using a Nokia BT
kit, so there must be a way of enabling FBUS over BT)

Yes, but not via the virtual COM port. Nokia digs into the API so this is the reason why the PC-Suite works with a Nokia bluetooth adapter only (you see, everything is compatible as expected). BTW: As far as I know this adapter is not distributed anymore :-(

My suggestion is, that it should work with the WinSock (like the IrDA stuff, also in this case the AT*NOKIAFBUS command is rejected when sent over the virtual com port) layer.

Cheers, Herbert
