Hey Pete,

Thanks for the suggestions!  Switching to channel 14 seems to have
worked, after rebooting both the computer and the phone.

My new problem is that every time I issue a gnokii command, the device
has to repair with my computer, and I have to retype my computer's pin
on the phone.  Is there a way to pair the device with the phone
semi-permanently so I don't have to do this?

Interesting. I get a prompt on the phone to accept the connection and then it works fine. Once it was paired I've never had to reenter the pin at all. The prompt to accept the connection is annoying but not as bad as having to enter the pin every time.
Having just looked. Once you have paired with a device there's an option in the phone Settings/Connectivity/Bluetooth/Paired Devices/Device to auto-conn without confirmation which gets rid of the confirmation.

Here's my hcid.conf file, I'm not sure exactly what I modded in here (if anything) but I remember playing around with it to get it working
