Thanks for your response, but I don't think this applies to me,
as I have not installed bluez-gnome,
since I assumed it was not necessary with KDE?

In any case, I managed to get connected, by running

[tim mary ~]$ sudo rfcomm connect 0 00:0F:DE:7B:1D:B5 3

Now I am asked for a PIN on the phone screen, which I give,
and a new bluetooth icon appears in the computer panel.
When I click on this I am asked for my PIN.

And now I see my laptop listed on the phone (a Sony Ericsson T630)
under Bluetooth=>My devices.
