Cant send files to my laptop via bluetooth from my phone

I can scan just fine with hcitool and it detects my phone, its showing up as running in service and my laptop can connect and send files through the GUI (Bluetooth Applet 0.26) just fine.

The problem is when I try to send files from the phone, it detects my laptop but when sending the file I get a (Sending Failed).

On my laptop I have both SElinux and Firewall enabled, I checked the logs for SElinux and there is no indication that it is blocking the sending, I'm not sure if the firewall is causing this, plus my phone is set as trusted in the Bluetooth Applet GUI.

Any idea?

Check /var/log/messages and /var/log/dmesg for firewall denials.

I see new logs there, so I guess its working, is there any other way to check that, what else could be the problem?

I know it sounds simple but make sure you have the latest firmware for your phone.

I'm sorry, but "I guess it's working" won't do:
su -
service rsyslog status

OK, I tried disabling both selinux and the firewall just to make sure its not blocking the files being sent from my phone, I get the same result, the message on my phone says sending failed. I can send files from my phone via bluetooth to other devises just fine.

Is there a way to check if the receiving of files via bluetooth on my system in working OK. How can I check this, maybe from the CLI.

Same problem testing this from another phone, any idea what could be causing this or how to get it to work?

This phone was not able to detect the laptop although it is made visible through the (Bluetooth Applet 0.26), I think the applet is buggy and maybe a solution through the CLI would be ideal in this situation, any idea?
