Because your computer Bluetooth adapter is probably intended to pair with a transmit-only device- it's designed to let you connect a headset/headphones/whatever, not to another computer (or phone).
If your computer has an IR port, or your phone has a USB port, you should be able to use those instead.
ETA: Transmit-only is a bad description. Voice-only would be a better one.
If it's a Motorola phone, Motorola PhoneTools will let you use your keyboard to send SMS messages, but again, you'll have to connect via USB or IR.
