    Welcome Ganeshrnet!. Don't apologise, that is what we're here for - to try and help where we can.

    I'm a bluetooth novice (using BlueDevil with KDE4.6.2 currently), and I'm only using it for file transfer (for work). Now, I'm not sure that BlueDevil provides dial-up connectivity yet, but you mentioned you had internet connectivity working with Ubuntu. Were you using the blueman applet by chance? If so, consider installing it.

    Code:
    zypper in blueman

    Good luck!
