OK, there's some great API documentation on the C++ interface to the phone, but where's the docs for what I can achieve using my VB Compact Framework? Can I get at the bluetooth interface at all? Or am I basically restricted to the set of tools given to me in the toolbar?

There are a couple of good articles here written by Derek over at deVBuzz:-
http://smartdevices....ticles/564.aspx
http://smartdevices....ticles/622.aspx

These cover the SMS and Phone features and how they can be accessed via .NETCF.

Bluetooth is partially COM/ActiveX based which makes it more difficult to use from .NETCF - you need a native eVC++ wrapper dll to get the two pieces to talk. I've not tried this yet. However a couple of us at (Notice the shameless plug!) OpenNETCF are working on a nice library for these phone functions. ETA unknown at this stage...
