Welcome to Geekzone... The first thing you have to do when using Bluetooth is to enable the device so it can be discovered by other handsets or PCs. Check the settings and change it to "Discoverable". Once you do this, you can try on your PC and run a search for new devices in the vicinity.

After this you can "pair" the devices, creating a more permanent connection between them.

After you use you can turn Bluetooth off or uncheck the "Discoverable" option, making your device invisible to others, except the ones that already know it (paired devices).

Sorry, You are out of luck, The Bluetooth in these phones is intended for Bluetooth Headset use only, Rumour has it there is a driver for using it (and some setting code) as a wireless modem but I aint seen any evidence nor proof..

You cannot do "object-push" or OBEX, Basically file transfers and the phone has no real "filesystem" you can access easily (or at all)
