I was using them with 6136 which should be similiar.

If you can't use libgnokii directly, the easiest way would be to write
simple gnokii-like app that would just do file handling and output
just what you want. Writing such app is a couple of minutes of
copy&pasting from gnokii.

If you are using gnokii files commands, FBUS works.

dku2libusb means use using FBUS.

Definitely. I mean for both. Bluetooth from GNOME uses Obex. And that
means that phone supports Obex :)

To be honest Python bindings are longstanding on the TODO list and I'm
looking for someone who would lead development in that direction. The
other way around is helping in developing dbus daemon and exposing all
libgnokii functionality into dbus. That would make equally easy python

take care,
