No, it should work with fbus. But you can try the MBUS mode too: try
to set connection = m2bus, switch the cable to the M position and try it
again. You can check the following:
* is the connector on your phone clean?
* wheter the switch is correctly in F position
* is the cable plugged perfectly to your phone?

Sometimes gnokii cannot connect to my 6110. In this case I unplug/replug
the cable and it'll work.
