Are you sure the port is right? Tried cuaa0?
I have gotten my laptop (Dell Inspiron 8600) to talk to my phone (Nokia 8210)
and Pocket PC using IRDA.
I use ircomm though, ie
[inchoate 10:07] ~ >sudo ircomm -d /dev/cuad1 -y /dev/ptypv -v 2
discovered Nokia 8210, address=75a2, hints=PnP, Modem, Fax, Telephony, IrCOMM,
Now I can do, say,
[inchoate 10:12] ~ >cu -l /dev/ttypv -s 57600
can't open log file /var/log/aculog.

One this I have noticed is that my phone is *extremely* sensitive to
positioning which is rather annoying.. It has to be 15-20cm away otherwise it
won't work (closer is as bad as far away).
