Not personally.

Although DUN might be your ultimate aim, I don't think it needs to
figure in the pairing process, does it?  I certainly managed to pair
my SE K750i without having DUN setup/enabled/working.

I'd try ignoring the DUN side of it for now.

When you /do/ manage to get the pairing set up, have a look here
(http://www.mail-archive.com/maemo-users@maemo.org/msg00132.html) if
you have DUN problems.  FWIW I took being able to access files on the
phone to be proof of correct BT operation, despite not (yet!) being
able to get DUN to work, probably because of the issue mentioned in
that thread.
