- are you sure your kernel is in sync with your modules?

- what is your module_path is?

- what happens when you do kldload /boot/kernel/ng_ubt.ko?

i'm building RELENG_5 now to check this.

if you want to use your phone as wireless modem to connect your laptop 
to the internet then you need DUN profile (see handbook, rfcomm_pppd(8))

if you want to use your phone to browse internet and use your laptop as 
gateway then you need LAN profile (see handbook, rfcomm_pppd(8))
