gnokii is a tool allowing Nokia cellphone users to browse its content, when connected to a computer through a cable, IR or bluetooth. This simple script brings lots of automatization of this process.

This bunch of lines is only a germ of what one can do using gnokii. gnokii --help should explain everything.

A few words ad. paths: Nokia phones use drive letters A: for internal memory and B: for sim card memory. You can browse whole directory tree using --getfilelist: $ gnokii --getfilelist 'A:*.' GNOKII Version 0.6.12 Filelist for path A:*.: predefgallery predefhiddenfolder predefinfofolder predefomadm serviceapplication predeffilerecieved predeffiledownload predefmessages predefsyncml HTTP FIM_fixed_id FIM_perm_id

WARNING: No error checks is performed! If the connection with a phone is broken the program might fail during any read*() calls, but it also may not and continue with random values. If you require to check the connection status first, you may add a method for checking connection status by e.g. executing os.system("gnokii --identify") and analyze the return code (however it doesn't always work).

A python bind already exists. a couple of the Dev's on Gnokki didn't like their direction so they split and made "Gammu"

They then wrote python binds for it to make making the GUI very easy
