I have elementary Freya installed. It seems Bluetooth is working. At least it's not hard- or software blocked and the lamp on my T420s is on as if Bluetooth was doing something. But when I try to find devices via blueman or the Bluetooth device manager in Freya it just searches and doesn't find anything.

Some output from the terminal:

Anything I'm missing?

Try resizing the "Device Search" window.

I was struggling in this same situation for long and for me the answer was simpler than I expected.
