Well, if you had to enter a pin code, then it's legacy pairing, which
works fine. If you just confirmed a pin code that was given, then it's
SSP, which is affected by a known bug in the kernel.
You can either (a) patch your kernel, (b) disable SSP, or (c) initiate
the connection from the phone. I suggest the last one since it is
Also note that you need a running BlueZ agent. You can use the
test/simple-agent script in BlueZ, which will probably ask for
confirmation when the phone tries to initiate the connection.
You seem to suffer from the SSP bug. You can fall back to legacy pairing
as Mikel indicated with:
sudo hciconfig hci0 sspmode 0
