Thanks for so detailed report. It is very useful.

Okay. I need to retest this. It used to work but it must have got broken
somehow. Gnokii regression testing really sucks :-( My bad.

Is the saved ringtone available from the phone?
Could you please send us:
 - debug output when you save the ringtone
 - debug output when retrieving it

I'll look into it.

That's strange. Last time I was fixing bitmap support I was testing it
with BMP files. Need to look into this.

Is it reversed in the phone or using --viewlogo?

Okay. What is the library that supports PBM?

The format should be quite similiar to NOL file (see Docs/logos.txt) but
it is definitely worth documentation. And checking what's going wrong.

You have to use your operator code. Otherwise the phone won't show it.
Could you please say when gnokii says your operator code is 000 00?
