That's not entirely true. You could fool gnokii to use another
configuration file by changing your $HOME variable.

For example the user johndoe could create a subdir phonetwo in his home
copying .gnokiirc to the new dir and modify it to the other phone's

cd; mkdir phonetwo; cp .gnokiirc phonetwo; editor phonetwo/.gnokiirc

After this is done a gnokii for the other phone is simply started with:

HOME=/home/johndoe/phonetwo gnokii

(Which could be handy to create an alias for)
