Hi Wolfram,

I finally got my bluetooth stuff running on my laptop powered by Gentoo
linux. Happy about that, I emerged the "gnokii suite" including xgnokii.
After some configuration cycles, I managed to connect to my phone. I
could read the phone book and so on. After trying to edit my personal
details on the phone, xgnokii and my phone crashed. After killing
xgnokii (the GUI was dead), my phone hang. I had to remove the battery
to be able to restart it. From now on, the phone isn't able to boot
anymore. It asks for the PIN and reboots after displaying the prompt for
the current time. I tried to start with a different SIM card, but
managed to get pass the time/date setting only once. It seems to me,
that I have to bring the phone to the Nokia service center.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to warn about the gnokii phone killing
feature ? I informed myself about gnokii before the first use and found
nothing dangerous. I found something in the mailing list archive about
the killing feature.

We do inform about such possibility in the cases we are aware of. This
is the first reported case to get the phone using the bluetooth

Do you happen to have the debug output of the xgnokii session that
broke the phone. $HOME/.gnokii-errors would be also useful.

Are there anymore informations helpful to make gnokii a bit more safe
and a bit less phone killing, that I could provide? Config files?

Well, I have been using gnokii for already few years using different
phones and different connection types and never had bad experience. I
don't use xgnokii though (at least not daily -- just to test
something). Two things across the cases to break the phone seems
- using xgnokii
- Nokia Series 40 phones.

Has someone found a way to reanimate the phone without a Nokia service

I am afraid not :-( To be more general: probably flashing the phone
memory is needed.

take care,
Pawel Kot
