How to access bluetooth phone?

I have never used bluetooth before and never had a bluetooth enabled phone, so please bear with me.
I have just upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze.
I have a bluetooth USB dongle on my box.
I have an LG420 through Tracphone.
I have installed Bluez.
I have turned bluetooth on at the phone and tried to search for other bluetooth devices (my desktop box). It does not fins any devices.
Following some documentation that I found elsewhere, I tried:
# hcitool dev
# hcitool scan
74:A7:22:01:5D:ED LG 420G
# hcitool inq
74:A7:22:01:5D:ED clock offset: 0x2326 class: 0x520204

Can't connect: Permission denied
So, the desktop seems to find the phone, but can not make a connection to it. Is there something that I still need to do on the phone so that I can connect to it from the desktop? What about connection the other way?
All that I need to do at this time is to be able to transfer files between the desktop and the phone, primarily photos and .mp3 files.
I don't know what to do next.
All help appreciated.
